Answering Your Questions on Energy and Afghanistan

Recently, President Obama participated in a live town hall with young people from across the country sponsored by MTV, BET, and CMT -- taking questions from the audience and Twitter on a variety of topics.

On Friday we brought you the first installment of video answers to questions that the President didn’t have a chance to get to during the town hall event. Below are two more, this time from Heather Zichal, Deputy Assistant to the President for Energy and Climate Change, and another answer from Ben Rhodes, Deputy National Security Advisor. Be sure to check back throughout the week for more questions and answers!
