LISBON, Portugal - European Union leaders endorsed a reform treaty Friday to replace their failed European constitution and give the 27-nation union a more influential say in world affairs, diplomats said.
While it lacks the constitution's most contentious elements — such as EU flag and anthem — it will give its foreign and security affairs chief a seat on the EU executive Commission with control over the EU's multibillion dollar aid budget and its extensive network of diplomats and civil servants.

Let us see if the person they put in control of the EU can be traced back to all of those evil corporations and illuminati people that every other world leader has been linked to. I am betting that this will be the case and it`s just another reason why I am glad this will all be over in five years.
