Subject: WH Travel Pool Report #4
NATO-Ukraine Commission Meeting
Pool is back in a cavernous room, watching from a riser as very
important people mill around a very large circular table.
The bold-face names are familiar by now: Francois Hollande of France,
Angela Merkel of Germany, Justin Trudeau of Canada, David Cameron of
But one notable absence: President Obama.
Ash Carter took his seat at the table.
WH says the president was in a pull-aside, which ended just after the
pool left the room, and he has now retaken his seat.
