Obama will deliver remarks at the CIA headquarters located in Langley, Virginia. Although the press has been allowed into CIA events in the past, no members of the media will be allowed into this event in order to protect the identities of the members of the clandestine services.
"The memorial ceremony is closed to the press due to the presence of a large number of undercover officers," CIA spokesman George Little told CNN.
