Samma skrot och korn

Sarkó le Pedó var i Washington i veckan, men först gjorde han ett blixtbesök i Tchad. rapporterar:

November 9-11, 2007 -- Washington fetes a President with alleged links to child traffickers

This past week French President Nicolas Sarkozy was feted by the Bush White House and the Democratic-led Congress as if he were the Marquis de Lafayette. In fact, the neocon media hailed the Bush-Sarkozy meeting as the return of the comradeship between George Washington and Lafayette.

However, as Sarkozy was preparing for his visit to Washington, he jetted off to the African nation of Chad to attempt to mediate for the release of workers for a so-called charity called "Zoe's Ark," charged with the attempted kidnapping of 103 children from Chadian villages near the border with Sudan.

Chad did release French journalists and Spanish female flight crew members to Sarkozy and today released male Spanish and Belgian flight crew members. However, the allegations about the remaining French Zoe's Ark members are growing more severe. The BBC sent TV crews to the villages near Adre, where some of the children lived, and their distraught parents told the network their children had been kidnapped.

Zoe's Ark officials have claimed the group enjoyed the personal support of Sarkozy, a claim his spokesman has disputed. However, Chad's government is suspicious about Sarkozy's vow to return to Chad to seek the freeing of six French Zoe's Ark workers who are all charged with attempted kidnapping by Chad. Sarkozy wants the French nationals to be tried in France. Sarkozy declared, "The role of the head of state is to take responsibility for all of the French people." Apparently, that also includes child traffickers.

The children, ages 1 to 10, comprising 82 boys and 21 girls, are being held at an orphanage in Abeche. They are awaiting return to their parents in the remote villages along the border with Sudan.

It is clear that Sarkozy is worried about what information the trial of the French nationals in Chad may yield, including Zoe's Ark's connections with the Elysee Palace and Sarkozy.

During the presidential campaign, Sarkozy said that there must be more understanding of pedophiles. He said he was "inclined to think that people are born pedophiles, and that it is also a problem that we do not know how to manage." Moderate presidential candidate Francois Bayrou called the comment "chilling" and a spokesman for Socialist candidate Segolene Royal said the comment was "surprising." The Archbishop of Paris, Andre Vingt-Trois, said Sarkozy's comments were "purely ideological nonsense and completely out of touch with current scientific and genetic knowledge."

What was the reaction of Congress to Sarkozy, the defender of child traffickers? "President Sarkozy has hit a home run out of the ballpark," California's Democratic Representative Tom Lantos, told the New York Times about Sarkozy's speech. Republican Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said of Sarkozy's speech, "It was an almost out-of-body experience for all of us.”

It would have been better to have asked these members of Congress what their reaction to Sarkozy would have been if the French President was tied to a group trying to spirit their grandchildren out of the United States to France.

Och Marc Dutroux mår väl bra, kan jag tro, tack vare punggreppets oslagbarhet när man bygger "male bonding"...
