Another input to the one picture/thousand words category: a snapshot that is elemental to the state of the current American foreign policy.
Does one really need a caption? Sergei Lavrov is the picture of confidence, clearly in charge as the body language portrays, right hand palm down clenching Kerry's, caught in a moment of bewilderment.
Admittedly, the camera catches an instant that doesn't necessarily portray the truth of the moment, and it may have been Richard Nixon who quipped, "The press always takes two photos in case the first one looked good."
But really, doesn't this just say it all?
