Court's 'Jerusalem' decision frustrates American Israelis JERUSALEM — The Supreme Court's decision to uphold a long-standing State Department policy to list only the word "Jerusalem" without "Israel" on the passports of U. S. citizens born here... ly/1IyUQmX JERUSALEM — The Supreme Court's decision to uphold a long-standing State Department policy to list only the word "Jerusalem" without "Israel" on passports of U.

A little before the address, the White House sends out an embargoed copy of the President's speech to the press (embargoed means that the press can see the speech, but they can't report on it until a designated time). The reporters then start sending it around town to folks on Capitol Hill to get their reaction, then those people send it to all their friends, and eventually everyone in Washington can read along, but the public remains in the dark. For the first time, the White House is making the full text of the speech available to citizens around the country online. On Medium, you can follow along with the speech as you watch in real time, view charts and infographics on key areas, tweet favorite lines, and leave notes. By making the text available to the public in advance, the White House is continuing efforts to reach a wide online audience and give people a range of ways to consume the speech.

Tonight, after a breakthrough year for America, our economy is growing and creating jobs at the fastest pace since 1999. Our unemployment rate is now lower than it was before the financial crisis. we are as free from the grip of foreign oil as we've been in almost 30 years. Tonight, for the first time since 9/11, our combat mission in Afghanistan is over.
