Germany Denies Being Pressured on Obama: Reports Say White House Objected to Speech Site

Date: July 12, 2008
Authors: Craig Whitlock and Jonathan Weisman
QUOTE: The German government strongly denied Friday that it had been pressured by the Bush administration to discourage Sen. Barack Obama from giving an address in front of the landmark Brandenburg Gate during his upcoming European tour. Obama's campaign has declined to confirm the dates of his trip, but politicians here continued to squabble over where, exactly, to lay out the red carpet for the presumptive Democratic nominee, who, in contrast to President Bush, is very popular with the German public.
