France is our biggest ally, declares Obama: President's blow to Special
Relationship with Britain
By Tim Shipman
Barack Obama has declared that France is America’s greatest ally,
undermining Britain’s Special Relationship with the U.S.
The President risked offending British troops in Afghanistan by saying
that French president Nicolas Sarkozy is a ‘stronger friend’ than David
The remarks, during a White House appearance with Mr Sarkozy, will
reinforce the widely-held view in British diplomatic circles that Mr
Obama has less interest in the Special Relationship than any other
recent American leader.
Offence: President Obama said France is America's greatest ally, which
has caused anger in Britain
Mr Obama said: 'We don’t have a stronger friend and stronger ally than
Nicolas Sarkozy, and the French people.'
that's equivalence, not preference. In other words, the headline is a blatant lie.
