I came across this while skimming Fareed Zakaria (editor of Newsweek Int'l and the brightest young foreign affairs analyst in the world, bar none). Padisha, Ali and all the other folks who want to know why we have problems with France should take note. See how de Gualle acts compared to Chirac. so my question is, why did this lack of trust occur? When did America so badly mislead or lie to the French to cause this massive drop in trust between 1962 and 2004? After all, you lied to us about selling weapons to Iraq, about making money off the oil for food scandal, and countless other issues. When did we lie to you?
