Pool Report #4 - POTUS to State Department and Photo Spray

The motorcade left the White House at 3:25 p.m. and arrived at the State Department at 3:30 p.m. after an uneventful trip.  Pool did not see POTUS leave the beast.

Pool took an elevator to the 6th floor and then walked up a flight of stairs to the 7th floor for the photo spray.  We were ushered in at 3:40 p.m.. POTUS was sitting at the head of a rectangular table with members of his national security team including Secretary of State Kerry, Joint Chiefs Chairman Dunford, National Security Advisor Rice, and CIA Director Brennan.  POTUS thanked the pool and sent us packing at 3:41 p.m.

Pool is now holding in the State Department cafeteria.  We are advised that we will not have access to WiFi during the President's statement.  However, the President's statement at the end of his meeting with the national security team will be carried live on the White House website.

If there is any color from the statement, pool will send once we are able to use communications gear.
