I guess this is what you are talking about.

Obama said he was "extraordinarily impressed" by the quality of leadership he witnessed at the organization's 60th anniversary meeting.

I don't know what the term is in Austrian

Term and speak are two different things.

Of course they are...

This thread has been G5's most qualified success to date.

My favorite part:

Danish Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen may owe his selection as the next NATO secretary-general to Obama.

Turkey had objected strongly to the Danish leader. That's because Fogh Rasmussen infuriated many Muslims by defending freedom of speech during a 2005 uproar over a Danish newspaper's publication of caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad.

Discussions on the choice of Fogh Rasmussen began over dinner Friday night, but could not overcome Turkey's concerns.

So Obama convened a meeting Saturday morning with himself, Turkish President Abdullah Gul and Fogh Rasmussen that lasted about an hour and significantly delayed the start of the official NATO session, according to retired Marine Corps Gen. James Jones, Obama's national security adviser.

Jones said the meeting broke the deadlock.

All 28 member countries signed off on Fogh Rasmussen as NATO's next leader.

Obama noted the unanimous vote at his news conference.

He thanked Turkey "for raising some concerns having to do with their security issues and their confidence that the new secretary-general would address them," Obama said. "So I congratulate all the parties concerned in arriving at an outstanding outcome."

Obama also expressed his confidence in Fogh Rasmussen, "calling him an outstanding public servant" and "somebody with an extraordinary reputation."

The whole "Muhammad in the cartoon" thing handled in one simple meeting between 3 reasonable people. As an alternative, I guess Obama could have listened to South Caks advice, told them the way it was going to be (i.e. leading), and then watched them both walk away in disgust, and then call it a great day for American balls.

It's a victory for Danish cartoonists. Hail Obama!
