French Criticism On Iraq No Longer Angers U.S
Signals Calming Of U.S.-French Relations
02/09/2007 2:05 PM ET
The AFP reports that French opposition to the Iraq war no longer angers Americans, as fresh criticisms from Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin and the French foreign minister went unheeded in Washington this week.

From the story: "In a sign that the Washington-Paris alliance is back to normal, there was virtually no comment this week after Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin and Foreign Minister Philippe Douste-Blazy described US policy in Iraq as a "failure," and called for withdrawal of all foreign forces in the country by 2008. Neither The New York Times nor The Washington Post published a line about the remarks, while the White House and the State Department, when asked by AFP, took care to avoid any dispute.
