"What do you expect from the french...competence" Actually, I expect from the French something on the order of $15 trillion plus interest, for the cost of liberating them from the Germans in both World Wars, and the continued protection under NATO throughout the Cold War up until today. Barring that, I'll settle for French counterterrorism experts that don't make Inspector Clouseau look like a freakin' genius.

Roland Jacquard, French security official: "We are not at the Operational Stage". THAT, Mssr Jacquard, is exactly what I was thinking. Please let us know when France becomes operational.

Remember that it was France tried to point the "Afgahn Connection" out to us well before September 11th. We also botched intelligence responses when the roles were reversed, and we are not in posession of all of the facts. The fact that a terrorist attack did not occur is sufficient for me right now (although I wish we could have nailed the bastards).

Its one thing to make mistakes. Its a completely different thing to avoid dealing with terrorism and to actively hender those that are trying to deal with terrorism as a matter of state policy.
