No word on whether Obama may visit Guam

by Mindy Aguon

Guam - The White House hasn't released any details about President Barack Obama's scheduled visit to the island next month.  The nation's commander in chief though is scheduled to leave Andrews Air Force Base on June 13 for a weeklong trip that is tentatively scheduled to include a stop to Guam, Jakarta and Bali, Indonesia and Canberra and Sydney, Australia. 

The White House has yet to release specifics about how long the president will be in Guam and whether he will host a public event.  Obama was originally scheduled to visit the island back in March, but delayed the trip for the passage of the sweeping healthcare reform measure.  Department of State Undersecretary Maria Otero for Democracy and Global Affairs, in a briefing on her recent trip to Indonesia, said Obama is scheduled to make a visit to the region on June 14.
