Wall Street Journal interview with German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle:
Q: Some NATO Allies complain about the restrictions Germany has imposed on its troops in northern Afghanistan.
A: I hear only praise and recognition of the successful work of German women and men, meaning not only the soldiers, in Afghanistan.
Is Germany's Foreign Minister deaf or is the Obama administration too polite for Germans too understand the criticism? Or has Obama's Afghanistan team (political and military) given up on Germany and thus only says nice things? (HT: ACUS)
