ABC News' Sunlen Miller reports: President Obama will hold his sixth meeting on Afghanistan and Pakistan with his national security team this morning. Those expected to attend are:  Vice President Biden (via videoconference from Ohio), Secretary of State Clinton, Secretary of Defense Gates, General James Jones, National Security Advisor, Tom Donilon, Deputy National Security Advisor, John Brennan, Assistant to the President for Counterterrorism and Homeland Security and Rahm Emanuel, White House Chief of Staff.
In the afternoon the president will travel to the Sunshine State for two days.
First he will stop in Jacksonville, Fla. and meet with servicemen and women at the Naval Air Station Jacksonville. The president will make a brief speech and then meet with personnel from the Navy and Marine Corps.
While the president's decision is still outstanding on a strategy forward in Afghanistan, the White House says not to "over-read" anything into the remarks that the president will deliver today, other than "he wants to thank the brave men and women of the United States Armed Forces for the hard and courageous work that they do."
Later, the president will travel to Miami to again put on his fundraising hat. This is the ninth fundraiser the president will have in a week for Democrats.  The president will deliver remarks at a fundraising reception and a fundraiser dinner at the Fountainbleau Hotel to benefit the  Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
