    There is nothing to defend at this point. It will either be a deliberate omission or his aides who filled out his submission were steered wrong by the afency or just didn't understand the instructions. The FBI assisted in the report so there is that.

    Obama gets rock-star welcome in Berlin, praises Merkel

    Barack Obama received a rock-star welcome in Berlin as he appeared at a public debate on Thursday with Chancellor Angela Merkel, whom he praised as one of his "favorite partners" during his presidency.

    Security was tight in front of the German capital's iconic Brandenburg Gate, where Obama and Merkel appeared on a podium before thousands of people attending a gathering marking the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. Police helicopters patrolled the skies and snipers with balaclavas watched the scene from nearby rooftops.

    After lauding Merkel as someone who had done "outstanding work," Obama launched a defense of his own presidency and the values of liberal democracy championed by both leaders.

    Citing the rise of nationalism and xenophobia in parts of the world, Obama told the crowd that "we have to push back against those trends that would violate human rights or suppress democracy or restrict individual freedoms."

    In a veiled reference to his successor, Donald Trump, Obama also spoke of the need to see development aid and diplomacy as essential aspects of national security policy.

    "We can't isolate ourselves. We can't hide behind a wall," he said, to cheers from the audience.

    Merkel, who hosted Obama at the same spot four years ago, was due to travel to Brussels later Thursday for a meeting with leaders of fellow NATO member states, including President Trump.

    Thursday's appearance with Obama was criticized by some German opposition politicians as a publicity stunt ahead of September's general election, in which Merkel aims to win a fourth term.

    Trump shoves a fellow world leader at NATO

    During his first joint meeting with NATO leaders in Brussels, President Trump on Thursday appeared to push the prime minister of Montenegro aside.

    In a video of the interaction, the president comes up from behind and then shoves Montenegro's Dusko Markovic to get to the front of the group of world leaders. Trump then adjusts his jacket.

    Markovic appears to be taken aback at first, but after seeing that it was Trump, he smiles and pats Trump on the back.

    When asked about the incident, Trump spokesman Sean Spicer said, "I have not seen the video."

    He also noted that the standing order for the photo op was pre-determined, as usual.

    During the Thursday meeting, Trump called on other leaders to spend more money on security, but did not explicitly endorse NATO's commitment to collective defense.
