The White House Situation Room

What is the situation space?

The Situation Room is a 5,525-square-foot conference room located in the basement of the West Wing of the White House.

Operated by staff from the National Security Council, it is a key center for the US President and his advisers.

The storage room provides 24-hour crisis support and critical information to White House staff, ensuring that all breaking news events and sensitive information are updated and conveyed to the President in a confident and secure manner.

When was the Situation Room created?

The Situation Room was founded in 1961 and is officially known as the John F Kennedy conference room.

After the failure of the Bay of Pigs invasion, President John F. Kennedy called for the construction of a highly secure, communications-tight conference room in the White House.

His goal was to build a team capable of providing the President and his staff with real-time information on national and/or international events.

The room has wood paneled walls to conceal audio, video and other vital communication systems.

Did President Biden use the situation room for the NATO summit?

On February 25, 2022, a virtual summit was held at NATO headquarters in Brussels to address Russia’s attack on Ukraine.

President Joe Biden attended the NATO Summit from the Situation Room to “reaffirm our solidarity and set out the next steps we will take to further strengthen all aspects of our NATO alliance.”

President Biden, in a speech on February 24, 2022, warned that Russian President Vladimir Putin “has much bigger ambitions than Ukraine.

“He actually wants to restore the former Soviet Union. That’s what this is about. And I think his ambitions are completely opposite to where the rest of the world has come to.”
