President Obama Addresses the Nation on Syria at 8 p.m.

Posted By on Tue, Sep 10, 2013 at 7:47 PM

President Barack Obama will address the nation at 8 p.m. on the crisis in Syria. Late this afternoon, sources including NBC News reported that the speech will likely make a case for the option raised yesterday by Russia — placing Syria's chemical weapons under international monitoring, as a step toward eventually destroying them — but may maintain the possibility of military strikes.

That would be a precarious position. As the Washington Post's Dan Balz writes, "Obama is now in a position of having to argue for war and diplomacy in the same address."

A recap of the issues underlying tonight's address can be found here. Check back in throughout the night and share your thoughts.
