Watch Obama's Big NSA Speech Live

President Obama is set to step to the mic at around 11 a.m. Expect him to announce the outlines of some significant reforms to the NSA's surveillance programs—with more than a few caveats—and also to call on Congress to help with the easier-said-than-done task of coloring within those lines. You can watch his remarks live above. Slate will have plenty more on the speech later.
