BREAKING: Obama to Speak


Pres. Barack Obama is scheduled to address the press at 1:30 pm EST. Oddly, this is when Mubarak’s speech was originally scheduled to be broadcast. The announcement from the White House comes notably suddenly.

UPDATE: My mistake. I note that the speech itself was planned well in advance. Only the fact that Obama was going to address the developments in Egypt was news. See my notes from the speech above.
