France has accused the US of an orchestrated disinformation campaign designed to stir up bad feelings toward them. <sarcasm>Well, it looks to me like the Bush administration has decided to spare their feelings by burying this story
on the Saturday of a 3-day weekend.</sarcasm> US intelligence has found a dozen French passports. There's no word on their provenance -- they could be forgeries or they could be genuine.
Merde in France is probably the only source in France where this news will be reported. Maybe Radio Free Europe (I think it's Radio Liberty now) should start broadcasting in French.
