It's sort of like "Lost In Translation," you know, at the end where Bill Murray whispers something very meaningful in Scarlett Johansson's ear, but the audience can't hear it. Same deal. The press was allowed to take pictures of the president, Gates, Crowley and Joe Biden drinking beer (and nonalcoholic beer), but there weren't any questions, and the parties involved ain't saying much.
I suppose it's nice that everybody was able to sit down and talk without, you know, arresting each other or threatening a lawsuit. Gates and Crowley plan to talk more in the future.
