Not Everyone In Germany Ecstatic About Obama's Berlin Speech
(Fox News) - It seems not everyone in Germany was ecstatic about Barack Obama's speech in Berlin.
German broadcasting station Deutsche Welle reports that those attending were told to leave their placards and posters at home.
The move came under criticism, especially from the German left, which speculated that the campaign wanted to avoid images of Germans displaying anti-American statements. Others say the ban was aimed at preventing activists from making demands on Obama.
And the senator's visit will cost just over three-quarters of a million dollars — half of which will be paid for with German public funds.
