The restricted meeting between Obama and Merkel, Monti, Hollande, Barroso, and Van Rompuy didn't happen. The White House said this was because it was decided to extend the working dinner at which all the G20 heads of government and state were present (though not heads of international organisations) .
The German version is that everything that was going to be said between Obama and the European leaders had been said; it was the Chancellor of Germany who cancelled the meeting after talks between her and the US President (talks that lasted 45 minutes, held before the G20 dinner began) exhausted any exchange of views.
It begins to look as if Kissinger's Question has been answered.
"What is morality?"
