    The White House is denying that the president bowed to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia at a G-20 meeting in London, a scene that drew criticism on the right and praise from some Arab outlets.

    "It wasn't a bow. He grasped his hand with two hands, and he's taller than King Abdullah," said an Obama aide, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

    too funny.......

    Not saying one way or the other here, but a bow is a universal "hello" which more countries recognize than anything else. This is why I see it as another "non-issue".

    i agree its not a big issue, but why did they then have to lie about it if it wasnt a problem

    and does another know if any previous POTUS has bowed for him?
