Some two dozen countries will send an estimated 7,000 more troops to Afghanistan next year, the chief of NATO said Friday as Secretary Clinton told her allied counterparts that an infusion of forces is crucial to turning the tide in the long war.
After the NATO meeting, Secretary Clinton spoke to reporters on NATO troop deployment at NATO Headquarters.Read her full remarks here or watch below:
But for some of us, what has been grabbing headlines is the flirt fest between Hillary and David Miliband. Now, we al remember from Hillary's interview in Vogue Magazine, when she confessed her love for David. Don't remember? Okay, okay, I may be exagerating... she did profess a little crush. Here's the clip from Vogue:
... When I mentioned to [Hillary] over lunch that I had spoken with [David], she lit up. "Oh, my God!" I joked that I got a crush over the phone in about five seconds partly because of his accent, and she said, "Well, if you saw him it would be a big crush. I mean, he is so vibrant, vital, attractive, smart. He's really a good guy. And he's so young!"Well, over at the NATO meeting this Friday it was easy to see how special their transatlantic relationship really is. Reports have been just gushing over the two of them saying they "looked like a couple of overexcited teenagers... There was shoulder rubbing, lots of eye contact and laughing, and at one stage Mrs Clinton seemed to be reaching down to give her neighbour a back massage."
Miliband had nice things to say about her, too: "She applies intellect but also psychology to the dossiers that she's studying. She uses her experience in a very impressive way. She brings it to bear in a way that enriches a conversation but doesn't swamp it. She learns from history without being trapped by it. I think it's also important to say that she's delightful to deal with one on one. She's someone who laughs and can tease, and she's got perspective as well."
