I just saw your post. I was on that broken-down plane, along with my boss Senator XXXXXXXX. Senators XXX and XXX were on the delegation too. Long story short, after we made a refueling stop in Gander, Newfoundland, a problem developed with the starter ignition, so the plane couldn’t start. They were unable to get a replacement part flown in until this morning. By that time, there would have been no point flying onward to Brussels and so we just returned home.
Too bad, it looked like a great agenda. One of the TV channels in our hotel rooms this afternoon was showing the BBC debate between Holbrooke and others, so we got a small taste of the Forum!

My friend — all I have to say is that the night owl sessions were great — and then the owl owl sessions were even better.
