Who’s the boss?

There’s a story in the WashPost today about the Saudi ambassador abruptly flying back to the Kingdom, possibly to replace the ailing foreign minister. This sentence in the article almost certainly could have been written better:

King Abdullah summoned Vice President Cheney after Thanksgiving for talks on Iraq and other Middle East flashpoints.
Summoned”? Somehow I don’t think so.
