Obama Presidential Town Hall

President Obama will host a unique discussion tomorrow in Istanbul, Turkey, starting at 5:20 AM EST time।
A hundred university students will be there from both Turkey and from exchange programs, representing one of the most diverse cultural audiences one could find in any one place in the world, and representing a wide range of attitudes and experiences with the United States. The President’s visit to Turkey also fulfills his pledge to visit a majority-Muslim country early in his term, and the forum represents an attempt to make the most of it in terms of direct communication. ... As the President told General Assembly morning, "Turkey and the United States must stand together -- and work together -- to overcome the challenges of our time।" This discussion should be a first step towards that goal.

For the first time, you'll be able to watch a event here live at For those of you aren't up quite that early, the White House has promised to have a transcript and video available later in the day.
