Obama arrived in Europe last week for a series of summits.
He first met with world leaders at the G-20 summit in London to discuss the global financial crisis.
At the NATO summit in France and Germany, the president was hoping to get a boost in resources for the war in Afghanistan. He did get allies to pledge about 5,000 troops, but in the form of police and security trainers - not combat troops.
