Afghanistan, Pakistan and naval matters are on President Obama’s agenda today.

This morning, Obama holds a Situation Room meeting on AfPak issues -- with fewer participants than related meetings held in recent weeks, according to the White House.

Today’s participants will include Vice President Biden (via videoconference), Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Defense Secretary Robert Gates, National Security Adviser retired Gen. James Jones, Deputy National Security Adviser Tom Donilon, Assistant to the President for Counterterrorism and Homeland Security John Brennan and White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, according to the White House.

This afternoon, Obama will fly to the naval air base in Jacksonville, FL, to speak to Navy and Marine Corps personnel there.
