Bush helped Fogh win NATO top spot

The former PM, Anders Fogh Rasmussen (Venstre), received a helping hand from former US President George W. Bush when he was appointed secretary general of NATO in 2009. Although Fogh's good buddy Bush was no longer president, he advised incoming president Barack Obama that Fogh was the best man for the job. Former Bush advisor Damon Wilson said that Rasmussen asked Bush for help at a meeting at Bush’s Texas ranch in 2008. Wilson said that Bush wanted to reward Fogh for his support of the US-led wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. – Politiken
