Details of Obama's speech revealed
Foreign Policy reports details of Obama's SOTU speech have been revealed. Several topics outlined below will be covered, especially jobs, the economy and immigration, but Obama will also focus on:
Climate Change - Appealing from an economic perspective, Obama will advocate supporting energy sustainability and technologies that lower greenhouse gas emissions.
Nuclear proliferation - There are several indications Obama will argue for reductions of nuclear arsenals around the world, including reducing the U.S. warhead supply from 1,700 to 1,000. With the recent North Korean nuclear tests, however, this may take a slightly different tone.
Afghanistan - Obama plans to reduce troop levels by 34,000 over the next year, approximately halving the U.S. ground presence in the country.
