Within the hour, President Obama will be delivering an important speech on the events in the Middle East and North Africa and the United States’ policy in the region. The speech will begin at approximately 11:40 AM EST, and you can watch it live here.
Immediately following the speech, Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes will be fielding questions submitted online and moderated by folks from NPR and Foreign Policy magazine. They’re going through submitted questions as we speak, and all you have to do to get involved is tweet at them at @whitehouse, @acarvin, and @abuaardvark (using hashtag #MEspeech).
We just submitted 3 questions of our own via Twitter and we would love it if you tweeted these questions too.
In the comments section, let us know what you think of the speech and the conversation that follows. We look forward to hearing what you think!
