Obama to give address on Guantanamo at Georgetown today

Nice to see you again!

President Barack Obama will be on campus today at 10 a.m. to deliver an address on the future of Guantanamo Bay, according to CNN. This will be the second time in a little over a month that he’s come to Georgetown to deliver a major address.

From CNN:

President Obama will address the future of the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, Thursday morning in a speech at Georgetown University.

In a speech that is being billed as a major address, Obama is also slated to discuss issues of state secrets, transparency and protecting national security, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said.

Update: Whoops!  Looks like CNN got the location wrong.  The speech is actually at the National Archives, according to the New York Times, which we’ve just corroborated with C-SPAN‘s live stream of the event.
