7. No-1pm OUR time (ET):
"The Obama campaign and the German government have selected the Pillar of Victroy (Siegessule)for Barack's speech. It is a great location and is actually opposite the Brandenburg Gate. The speech is scheduled to take place on Thursday the 24th at 7pm CET, or 1pm EST. Here is a link to the story."

3. Berlin is 6 hours ahead of us.
So I guess that makes 7:00am, if it runs on schedule. Probably more like 8:00 before he speaks though.

6. Think you've got this wrong. It would be 7 p.m. Berlin time, not 7 a.m.
That makes more sense, doesn't it?
