Coming Up: Obama-Cameron News Conference

President Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron are due to hold a news conference at the White House just after noon ET.

We’ll live blog as they speak, so check back as the time approaches and hit your “refresh” button every once in a while after they get started.

Among the topics likely to come up: the mission in Afghanistan, where the weekend murders of 16 civilians (allegedly by a U.S. Army staff sergeant) have threatened to intensify anti-American sentiment; the global economy and signs of a recovery in the U.S.; and the American presidential race.
