President to address the Nation

president_official_portrait_hiresIt’s being reported that President Obama will address the Nation on Wednesday, September 10th. 

The subject he’s planning to discuss is a mystery so far, but it’s rumored he’ll address two topics:

Seth Jones, a senior analyst at the Rand Corporation, told CNN’s Barbara Starr on Friday that there are indications that Nasir al Wuhayshi, the Yemeni leader of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), had recently been appointed into the role by al Qaeda leader Ayman al Zawahiri.

The appointment would effectively thrust Wuhayshi, a Yemeni national, into the No. 2 position in the global al Qaeda terrorist network, a position previously held by the Libyan Abu Yahya al Libi before his death in a drone strike in Pakistan in June 2012.
