NATO Coming to Town
- World leaders will gather in Chicago next spring to assess the situation in Afghanistan and discuss the future of the war effort there, President Barack Obama will announce in an address from the White House tonight.
The NATO summit will serve as a chance to review goals laid out by the security alliance in Lisbon last fall, when leaders agreed to begin transition to full Afghan responsibility for security in 2014, a senior administration official said.
The summit, to be held between May 15 and 22 of next year, will coincide with another international meeting in Chicago as the Group of Eight industrialized nations convenes to focus on global economic issues.
Rahm's already begging for money to pay for the security arrangements for the back-to-back conferences. We'd hope there are going to be plenty of hire-back opportunities.
