“The United States takes this as seriously as if this was our own citizens and our own children who were murdered,” Mr. Obama said, in his first public remarks since the shooting took place on Sunday. He said he was “heartbroken by the loss of innocent life,” calling it outrageous and unacceptable. “It’s not who we are as a country, and it does not represent our military,” he added.

The president said the Pentagon would follow the facts “wherever they lead us,” though he offered no new details about the identity of the soldier or the circumstances of the attack. Mr. Obama said he met on Monday with the American military commander in Afghanistan, Gen. John R. Allen, and with the ambassador, Ryan Crocker.

Mr. Obama insisted that the furor stirred up by the rampage would not alter the policy or timetable of the United States as it winds down the war in Afghanistan. The administration, he said, was on track to withdraw 23,000 troops from the country by the end of the summer. That would remove the troops added for the “surge” in 2010, and lower the total number of American troops in Afghanistan to 68,000.
