White House: Obama Did Not Bow To That Guy. King Abdullah

Really guys, this is your story?

"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.

The video is below the fold. Obama's left hand is clearly on his leg while bowing. So exactly how many hands does Obama have?

BTW- The whole Obama is taller thing? No sale. I'm 6'5" (real world, not fakey internet height). I'm taller than a good 90% or so of people and I've never bowed low enough to check out a guys package while shaking his hand.
