Obama yanks the G8 summit from Chicago

The White House offers up Camp David instead.

Big protests were planned surrounding the Chicago summit. But is there more working behind the scenes of the announced swap?

My friend and radio co-host Don Dickinson had this immediate reaction:
I think this is a big deal. 
Either they think they will have real security problems due to something that has already happened or they are considering making announcements that could cause huge problems. 
Camp David is vastly more secure than any city location but the facilities are spartan for what is normally a big affair. 
I think we need to pay attention to how this story develops.
The G8 summit takes place in May. A lot can happen between now and then.
