President 007

How Chindia and other links were broken up just in time by super-agent Obama, with a bit of assist from a lady who made the Hard Choice of cutting through the human (??) chain of Chinese Secret Service agents.

The action sequence was in our opinion slightly more dramatic than the kill Osama elect Obama venture. Bravo!!!

Obama is a true hero for liberals in America and the world, but we still feel that impact-wise “Mr Premier, are you ready?” pales in comparison to those magical words: “Mr Gorbachev, tear down this wall”
……….
Eventually they discovered the meeting’s location…...
Robert Gibbs, the White House press secretary, got tangled up with a Chinese guard, she adds.
In the commotion the president slipped through the door and yelled, ‘Mr Premier!’ really loudly, which got everyone’s attention.
“The Chinese guards put their arms up against the door again, but I
ducked under and made it through,” Clinton writes recounting the
incident.

“In a makeshift conference room whose glass walls had
been covered by drapes for privacy against prying eyes, we found Wen
wedged around a long table with Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh
,
Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, and South African
President Jacob Zuma.

Jaws dropped when they saw us. ‘Are you ready?’ said President Obama, flashing a big grin,”

At the
international conference on climate change in Copenhagen in December
2009, US President Barack Obama forced himself into a room where the
then Chinese premier Wen Jiabao was holding a secret meeting with the
then Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and other leaders.

Giving a blow by blow account of the incident, of which she was part as
the then secretary of state, Hillary Clinton in her memoirs ‘Hard
Choices’ writes that the purpose of China was to isolate the United
States by bringing together countries like India, Brazil and South
Africa on its side.

But Obama’s determination and presence of mind thwarted such a move, she writes.

“President Obama and I were looking for Premier Wen Jiabao in the
middle of a large international conference on climate change in
Copenhagen, Denmark,” she recalls.

“We knew that the only way
to achieve a meaningful agreement on climate change was for leaders of
the nation’s emitting the most greenhouse gases to sit down together and
hammer out a compromise — especially the US and China,” she said. “But
the Chinese were avoiding us.”

Worse, we learned that Wen had
called a ‘secret’ meeting with the Indians, Brazilians, and South
Africans to stop, or at least dilute, the kind of agreement the United
States was seeking.
When we couldn’t find any of the leaders of those
countries, we knew something was amiss and sent out members of our team
to canvass the conference centre,” she writes.

“Eventually they discovered the meeting’s location.

After exchanging looks of ‘Are you thinking what I’m thinking?’ the
president and I set off through the long hallways of the sprawling
Nordic convention center, with a train of experts and advisers
scrambling to keep up,” she writes in her book.

 “Later
we’d joke about this impromptu ‘footcade’, a motorcade without the
motors, but at the time I was focused on the diplomatic challenge
waiting at the end of our march. So off we went, charging up a flight of
stairs and encountering surprised Chinese officials, who tried to
divert us by sending us in the opposite direction. We were undeterred,”
she says.

When they arrived outside the meeting room, there was a jumble of arguing aides and nervous security agents, she says.

Robert Gibbs, the White House press secretary, got tangled up with a Chinese guard, she adds.

In the commotion the president slipped through the door and yelled, ‘Mr Premier!’ really loudly, which got everyone’s attention.

“The Chinese guards put their arms up against the door again, but I
ducked under and made it through,” Clinton writes recounting the
incident.

“In a makeshift conference room whose glass walls had
been covered by drapes for privacy against prying eyes, we found Wen
wedged around a long table with Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh,
Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, and South African
President Jacob Zuma.

Jaws dropped when they saw us. ‘Are you ready?’ said President Obama, flashing a big grin,” Clinton claims.

“Now the real negotiations could begin. It was a moment that was at least a year in the making,” she adds.
