Lost in translation 1

President Obama says that his meetings with the leaders of both Afghanistan and Pakistan were 'extraordinarily productive.'

Translation: a waste of time, back to square one. This is not working, don’t know what to do now…

US President Barack Obama has said after meeting his Afghan and Pakistani counterparts that they are united in the goal of defeating al-Qaeda.

Translation: they couldn’t agree on the time of day. Finally, and it was hard work, they found something they could share: the Earth is round (most of the time).
