Obama's Afghanistan Address Set For 8 P.M. ET Wednesday

Just in from the White House:

"At 8 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, June 22nd, the President will address the nation from the White House to lay out his plan for implementing his strategy — first unveiled in December 2009 — to draw down American troops from Afghanistan."

This refers to, as we wrote earlier, to the announcement about the pace and scope of the troop withdrawal.

We'll be live-blogging during the address, and it's safe to say that it will be broadcast by most if not all the major news organizations.
