Get Real! South Korean flag displayed for North Korean team at Olympic game

The North Korean women's soccer team refused to take the field after the South Korean flag was displayed on the big screen next to players at a game against Colombia yesterday.

After profuse apologies from Olympic organizers, the team eventually returned to the field and the game began about an hour late.

Soledad O'Brien and the Starting Point team discuss the snafu on the show this morning.
