Jour 1301

Même les américains le voit...

The Independent, 1er décembre 2010 :

"US embassy cables have detailed how French President Nicolas Sarkozy's staff and ministers fear their leader's temper, and were concerned about the impact of his personal life on his presidency. A confidential memo to the US Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, from ambassador Charles Rivkin in December 2009, said of Sarkozy: "Elysée contacts have reported to us the great lengths they will go to avoid disagreeing with him or provoking his displeasure – even recently reportedly rerouting the President's plane to avoid his seeing the Eiffel Tower lit up in Turkey's colours on the visit of PM [Recep Tayyip] Erdogan." An earlier note to President Bush warned of "raising questions about a thin-skinned and authoritarian personal style"."
