More information about Final Jeopardy:

Oh, cool—another acronym! NATO—which stands for the North Atlantic Treaty Organization—was an expansion of a Western European defense union known as the Western Union. The initial 12 countries in NATO were Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Iceland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
The “fraternity of peace” statements were made by Senator Arthur Vandenberg (R-Mich.) in forging bipartisan support for Truman’s foreign policy initiatives; one other famed Vandenberg quote is “politics stops at the water’s edge”.
