Chicago Sun-Times Abdon M. Pallasch reports on Ben Rhodes, deputy national security adviser for strategic communication, in Chicago on Tuesday discussing the May NATO and G-8 summits in the city.

His story is HERE.

Excerpt: “The agenda for 50 countries coming to Chicago in May for the NATO and G-8 summits includes Afghanistan, arming NATO for the future, and partnering with more countries around the globe, White House officials said Tuesday.

“The officials met with Chicago’s consul generals, who are trying to set up events around town so that, for instance, Italian officials can meet Italian-American Chicagoans and Eastern European officials can meet with the large ethnic populations from those countries here.

“The agenda for the G-8 — the countries with the largest economies — is a bit looser than the NATO agenda and is still being negotiated, said Ben Rhodes, deputy national security adviser for strategic communication.”
