President Obama Expected To Make Rose Garden Statement Within The Hour

President Obama has rearranged his afternoon schedule to address reporters in the Rose Garden at the White House at 1:30 p.m. ET.

The president is expected to talk about his meeting with Gen. Stanley McChrystal, the top American commander in Afghanistan, which took place earlier today.

According to the White House, Obama "will no longer attend the event today at 2:50PM on the President's Council on Physical Fitness and Nutrition at Columbia Heights Educational Campus," adding "the First Lady will still attend the event and deliver remarks on the President's Council on Fitness, Sports, and Nutrition (PCFSN)."
