Just a brief note to let everyone know that, according to CNN, "President Barack Obama will focus on U.S. policy toward the Middle East and North Africa in his speech today at 10:10 a.m. ET the U.N. General Assembly".
There is a livestream of the proceedings, going on now, here at the UN website.
It will be interesting in light on all that has happened in, and regarding, Syria recently to hear what the President has to say to the General Assembly.
Update: for those who missed it live, here is what appears to be a video of the complete speech. If you haven't seen it, it is worth watching. Whether you agree or disagree with what he says, it can be helpful to know what he said, in our name, to the leaders, and the people, of the world community. I think it is also helpful to keep in mind that he is speaking to many widely disparate audiences at once, and that the words he chooses reflect this fact.
