"Barack Obama wrote a letter to Jacques Chirac to tell him about his desire to "work with him" for the next four years !
In a letter described by Chirac as "very nice," Obama wrote, "I am certain that we will be able to work together, in the coming four years, in a spirit of peace and friendship to build a safer world."
The use of the word "peace" was taken to be an indirect reference to Chirac's stance against the US intervention in Iraq, which Obama had also opposed.
This revelation was made by the online edition of the daily Le Figaro on Thursday."
Just one small snag, Jacques Chirac is no longer the French President, Nicolas Sarkozy was elected President in 2007.
Now if George Bush had made such an error it would have been headline news and referred to on topical news shows but as this is the Obamamessiah... nothing, nada, tumbleweed!
