Chicago Might Also Host Russia-NATO Summit Next May

CHICAGO (CBS) — It looks like Chicago will host not only NATO and the rich G8 nations next spring, but also Russia.

NATO is set to hold a summit in Chicago next May with its 28 member countries. The G8 meetings will be held at the same time.

As WBBM Newsradio’s John Cody reports, a NATO-Russia summit could be held in Chicago too.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel said a Russia-NATO summit would just be an add on to what’s already happening in Chicago this coming spring

“Sure, it’s around the NATO/G8 summit that we’ll be hosting in mid-May, but they’re gonna just have another … an additional meeting,” Emanuel said.

The mayor said it wouldn’t make sense for the NATO and G-8 participants to meet in Chicago, go home, then return to meet the Russians.

NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said the Russia-NATO summit might be added to the Chicago roster if NATO and Russia can agree on substantive issues to discuss.

The NATO summit will focus on the alliance’s long-term commitment in Afghanistan, its military capabilities, military defense and partnerships in the Mediterranean and Persian Gulf.

    The FBI and DEA fabricate evidence, steal from suspects and use murder to close those bad cases.
    How is it that 12 of the 9/11 terrorists could live for 2 weeks just 2 miles from NSA head quarters in Maryland.
    This after several of them had taken flight simulator lessons on Jumbo jet trainers and several of them where on State department terror watch lists.
    There is evidence that employees from DoD, CIA and DOJ accepted bribes from Al Quida.
    If DoJ and DoD employees where more concerned with doing their jobs than enriching themselves by stealing from suspects and taking bribes, then there might have been more a chance that 9/11 had never happened.

      @j, You really should lay off of that crystal meth. Your hallucinations seem to be getting worse as time goes on. Your delusions were comical at first, but now you just sound like a disconfungulated drug addict.
