“I can’t stand him anymore, he is a liar.” French President Nicolas Sarkozy comments regarding Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the recent Group Of 20 Summit held in Paris.
“You may be sick of him, but me, I have to deal with him every day.” Barack Obama’s response to Sarkozy.
Ever wonder what these guys talk about at these heady conferences to save the world’s economies? At a news conference where Obama and Sarkozy were wearing microphones and waiting to speak, they had this conversation. Unaware they could be heard by the french press they felt cozy enough to press ahead on their views about Netanyahu and the Palestinian application to Unesco. Palestine’s application was approved by Unesco despite lobbying from the U.S. against it. Now the U.S. is faced with withdrawing funding to the world organization.
