"This photo was included because of its historical significance and at the time, a secret phone call. The President talks with democracy leader and Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi of Myanmar (also known as Burma) during a phone call from Air Force One on the flight from Darwin, Australia, to Bali Indonesia. The next day the President announced that Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton would be the first U.S. Secretary of State to visit the country in 50 years, which she later did in December."
