White House Week

9.8.14

On Thursday, President Obama made a statement on Iraq, announcing two authorised operations in the country. Watch his remarks below.



Also on Thursday, the President travelled to Fort Belvoir, VA to sign a reform bill giving the Department of Veterans Affairs the necessary resources to improve access and quality of care for the men and women who have served our country in uniform.

This week, The White House hosted the US-Africa Leaders Summit. More than 40 heads of state and government from across Africa were in attendance, highlighting the ways that the United States and Africa are partnering to address both the drivers and impacts of climate change.

One of the events was a fascinating conversation with First Lady Michelle Obama and former First Lady Laura Bush. It's well worth a watch!
