Center for Strategic Communication

I guess if it’s good enough for Queen Raina, then it’s good enough for State Department Spokesman Sean McCormick.  He will be taking your questions via YouTube video.  All you have to do is go to the State Deparment YouTube Channel and post your question.

According to a video statement by McCormick, this is an effort to take questions from ordinary folks (if people with video cams and internet connections can be called ordinary) instead of just the MSM.  He says (twice) that he expects it to be “fun,” though I can think of several not-so-fun questions that people might ask.

Since all the questions posted will presumably be visible, it will be interesting to see which ones get answered and which ones don’t.  McCormick promises to answer as many of them as possible.  Hurry, though, because this appears to be a limited time offer.  A notice I got says answers will be posted by Haloween.
