UPDATE 3: The event has concluded. I have a report here on Obama’s appearance.
UPDATE 2: It’s now 1:30 pm. Still no Obama. It’s as if they are trying to make a point about the incompetence of this administration.
UPDATE: Sorry, he’s late as usual. Now it’s at 1:15 pm ET. I feel like I invited everyone to a party and forgot to pick up the chips.
President Obama is currently meeting with his national security team. Afterwards, at 12:30 pm ET, he plans to appear in the briefing room at the White House. I will live stream it here.
He may turn this into a mini-press conference, because the regular White House briefing has been cancelled.
