First up today, a major speech from President Obama.
The president says America is at a crossroads in the fight against terror .
Yesterday he talked about some of the programs and policies that the government has used in that fight, things like the drone program.
The president acknowledged some of the controversy surrounding this.
But he said drone strikes are legal and save lives.
President Obama also talked about the prison facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba where dozens of terrorism suspects are held.
He wants to close that facility and move those prisoners.
Some Republican leaders criticized the president's speech.

Your best bet is to get into the basement, somewhere below ground level,
but keep in mind that if you're there, you want to see what's on the floor above you as well.
Refrigerator or a piece of heavy furniture could come crashing through the floor.
So you want to be weary of that.
Also, here in Moore, Oklahoma, there aren't a lot of basements.
Studies have actually shown that there is another very good option.
Take a look over here.
An interior room or a closet like that can be the best place to be as well.
The house is gone here,
but that closet preserved, even the cloth inside of that.
