France's Sarkozy Meets with President Bush

Hosted by

When French President Jacques Chirac opposed the Iraq invasion in 2003, French Fries became "Freedom Fries" in the US Senate dining room. Last night, there was a state dinner for the new French President at the Bush White House, and today, President Nicolas Sarkozy addressed a joint session of Congress to standing ovations. Later, the two presidents conferred at Mount Vernon, a shrine of American patriotism.  Serge Halimi is a journalist for Le Monde Diplomatique.
