A Twitter Interview With A White House National Security Adviser

May 19, 2011

Following President Barack Obama's speech on the Middle East, NPR's Andy Carvin (@acarvin) and Foreign Policy's Marc Lynch (@abuaardvark) will be at the U.S. State Department for an interview with Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes.

The interview will happen on Twitter. Andy and Marc have been collecting questions, but they'll also monitor the conversation on Twitter as the speech gets going and they'll pick out a few questions during that time as well.

You can send questions by attaching the #MEspeech hashtag to your tweet.

Below, you'll find first a live video stream of the interview and, then, a box with Andy and Marc's tweet stream. We'll be pulling in some public tweets on occasion, both during the speech and during the interview. Copyright 2011 National Public Radio. To see more, visit http://www.npr.org/.
