The Venue For Obama's Detainee Speech

President Obama plans to give a major speech on national security and the Guantanamo Bay detainees tomorrow in Washington, D.C., and it seems that considerable thought has been given to the venue.

The speech will be given in a large room used to display the Constitution at the National Archives, CBS News' Mark Katkiv reports. The symbolism on a day when the president is discussing prisoner's rights and national security issues is obvious.

The documents on display in the room tomorrow will be reproductions, Katkov reports, because the originals cannot safely be exposed to light.
