Perhaps it was because of the shame of bringing world leaders to view for themselves what many Americans have come to understand are credible grounds for his impeachment and a manifest demonstration of America’s embarrassment on a scale rarely witnessed before in modern history.]

Or perhaps the decision had something to do with the difficulties the President was having with the military and his staff was beginning to hear about from sources like the world-wide transmission of the BBC’s Newshour. ]
