Last week we brought you Andrew Arulanandam. (Say that three times fast!) Today we welcome Jaap de Hoop Scheffer, NATO Secretary General, long-distance runner, and devoted husband [of Jeannine de Hoop Scheffer-van Oorschot]. (Our guest host, Anthony Brooks, spent most of the morning perfecting his pronunciation of the Secretary's Dutch name.) De Hoop Scheffer will join us to talk about NATO, its role in Afghanistan, and the Russia-NATO Council. Maybe we can get him to talk about the time he got Punk'd, too!
