Ok I know this is going to be an easy one and I just do not deal with time that often in my current work.

I have a column called REQ_DT that is a DATE column and holds the date an account was requested (ex 2/27/2011 10:16:44 PM) as well as the time. I just need to have a where clause that selects all of the REQ_DT's where the REQ_DT is less than or equal to the CURRENT_DATE 2:00:00 pm

So basically all of the requests that were submitted before today at 2:00pm. Hope that anyone can assist.

Try this:
select * from table were req_dt <= to_date(to_char(sysdate,'MM/DD/YYYY') || '14:00:00','MM/DD/YYYY HH24:MI:SS');
