NATO Video Includes Errors About City, President

It seems NATO may also stand for Not All That Observant.

A video posted on the North Atlantic Treaty Organization website ahead of its upcoming summit in Chicago got a few things wrong identifying Chicago as Illinois' capital, identifying the city as the place President Barack Obama grew up and identifying the wrong man as the founder of the Chicago Tribune.

But by Friday, NATO showed it could also stand for Not About To Offend after it scrubbed those mistakes from the video.

Springfield is Illinois' capital. Obama spent his childhood in Hawaii and Indonesia and only moved to Chicago later. And Col. Robert McCormick, for whom the host convention center is named, did not found the Tribune, as the video first stated.
