Oops! Sarkozy calls Netanyahu a liar, Obama complains "I have to deal with him every day"

Someone needs to put in Barack Hussein Obama's campaign notes for 2012 not to meet with French President Nicolai Sarkozy. As you can see from the picture above and the post below, Sarkozy brings out the worst in Obama.

The two met in Cannes at the G20 last Thursday and someone left the microphone on when it should have been shut off.
The conversation apparently began with President Obama criticizing Sarkozy for not having warned him that France would be voting in favor of the Palestinian membership bid in UNESCO despite Washington's strong objection to the move.

The conversation then drifted to Netanyahu, at which time Sarkozy declared: "I cannot stand him. He is a liar." According to the report, Obama replied: "You're fed up with him, but I have to deal with him every day!"

The remark was naturally meant to be said in confidence, but the two leaders' microphones were accidently left on, making the would-be private comment embarrassingly public.

The communication faux pas went unnoticed for several minutes, during which the conversation between the two heads of state – which quickly reverted to other matters – was all but open to members the press, who were still in possession of headsets provided by the Elysée for the sake of simultaneous translation during the G20 press conference.

"By the time the (media) services at the Elysée realize it, it was on for at least three minutes," one journalist told the website. Still, he said that reporters "did not have a chance to take advantage of this fluke."

The surprising lack of coverage may be explained by a report alleging that reporters present at the event were requested to sign an agreement to keep mum on the subject of the embarrassing comments.

A member of the media confirmed Monday that "there were discussions between journalists and they agreed not to publish the comments due to the sensitivity of the issue."
That probably explains why - as far as I know - no audio or video of the conversation has emerged.

The French website which broke the story is here. Here's a translation of it that someone sent me.
It was a frank conversation between heads of state, about another officer. Exchange-flowing, and camera. Finally, who should have stayed behind closed doors. Did not count on a blunder of the organization, and the curiosity of a few journalists. Revelations of two short sentences that sail far from the language normally civilized diplomatic summits.

Thursday, November 3, during the G20 summit in Cannes, Nicolas Sarkozy met Barack Obama in to a "bilateral talks" . As is customary, the two men faced reporters, but also discussed in private, in a separate room, away from eavesdroppers in order to be free from any deduction diplomacy. This was the case, but the discretion is missed.

Reportedly, the two presidents have left out any deductions about the delicate issue of Israeli-Palestinian relations.Obama was first criticized Sarkozy for not having warned that he would vote for the accession of Palestine to UNESCO, while the United States were strongly opposed. The conversation then drifted Benjamin Netanyahu, Israeli Prime Minister. Sure not to be heard, the two presidents are released. "I can not see, is a liar" , Sarkozy launched."You're tired of it, but I have to deal with it all day " , replied Obama, who then asked Sarkozy to try to convince the Palestinians to ease up on their request for UN membership .

We can not imagine sentences if officially launched free, of course. What has happened so that they reach the ears of the team if @? Reportedly, several journalists have heard a few minutes of conversation "off" between the heads of state, due to an error of the services of the Elysee. While the presidents discussed, journalists were presented with boxes that were to enable the translation of their words, once they were ready to respond to the press. A good caring voice has seen fit to specify that helmets were not distributed because they would have to follow the conversation behind closed doors in the process to unfold!

Neither one nor two, half a dozen journalists have grabbed their cell phones or headsets to connect their helmets on the boxes. "By the time the services of the Elysée realize it, he has had to take place three minutes " , says a journalist now, but has not had time to take advantage of this fluke.

To our knowledge, these statements explosives, the existence or the contents have been confirmed by several journalists, are not in the press (but they were mentioned in one sentence on the blog Leparmentier Arnaud, theWorld ) . The journalists have in fact agreed not to exploit them: "We have not registered, and use was an acknowledgment that they had cheated , says one of them. In addition, it would is seriously in trouble those responsible for the organization. " A member of the hierarchy of a media confirms: "There have been discussions between journalists on the spot who have agreed not to do. It is a subject a very sensitive: it is annoying not to report this information, but at the same time, we are subject to precise rules of conduct, and disseminate these phrases came back to break them."
The Le Monde blog that's referenced is here. Here's a Google translation of the crucial paragraph, which at least confirms that the incident took place:
The diplomatic dance continues with a meeting with Mr Sarkozy Barack Obama. Speaking to the press, Bush teased Mr. Sarkozy, rejoicing that her daughter Giulia more like Carla Bruni as his father. No one knows whether to laugh. Previously, the two leaders are afflicted in private of their difficult relations with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Mr Sarkozy has mostly belched against Mr. Papandreou and expressed concern about Silvio Berlusconi.
As an aside, isn't it amusing that Google translated le President Americain as "Bush"?

Bottom line - the audio or video of this must be found and it must be used to expose to all these idiots who think Obama is pro-Israel that he can't stand Prime Minister Netanyahu. I suspect that we'll find the video of Rashid Khalidi's party first.


JPost notes the irony that the very next day, Sarkozy said that France 'would not stand idly by' if Israel's existence were threatened.

Of course not. They'd probably join in threatening it.

Obama probably did it on purpose.

Everyone should remember WHY the LA Times said they were keeping it secret also. They said 'because it would harm Obama’s campaign'. Of course that is why we have a First Amendment and an "independent" media. What a joke.
