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.
