The head of France disparages an American presidential candidate.
Original post made by Sharon on Oct 29, 2008
Wait, it's not what you think.
Now France's president, Nicolas Sarkozy, is criticizing one of our presidential candidates for his attitude toward Iran, which Sarkozy calls "utterly immature," according to the Israeli newspaper Ha'aretz. Web Link
Hold on a second. It turns out Sarkozy isn't referring to McCain at all:
"Sarkozy is very critical of U.S. presidential candidate Barack Obama's positions on Iran, according to reports that have reached Israel's government.
Sarkozy has made his criticisms only in closed forums in France. But according to a senior Israeli government source, the reports reaching Israel indicate that Sarkozy views the Democratic candidate's stance on Iran as "utterly immature" and comprised of "formulations empty of all content." . . .
Until now, the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany have tried to maintain a united front on Iran. But according to the senior Israeli source, Sarkozy fears that Obama might "arrogantly" ignore the other members of this front and open a direct dialogue with Iran without preconditions."
