    Of course, Obama doesn't have to deal with him every day, but then Obama only tells the truth by accident.:shocked:

    While the US is busy doing regime change around the World, Netanyahu is also busy trying to do a regime change in the US! :laugh:

    What a blunder if true. Sarkozy is known for low patience. Moreover criticizers of Israeli premier just got more ammo!

    hmmm- what do you mean he tells the truth by accident. Obama in the article was taking him to task over france's vote for palestine in UNESCO.

    Report: Sarkozy calls Netanyahu 'liar'

    Microphones accidently left on after G20 meeting pick up private conversation between US, French presidents. Sarkozy admits he 'can't stand' Israeli premier. Obama: You're fed up with him? I have to deal with him every day!


    French President Nicolas Sarkozy reportedly told US President Barack Obama that he could not "stand" Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and that he thinks the Israeli premier "is a liar."

    According to a Monday report in the French website "Arret sur Images," after facing reporters for a G20 press conference on Thursday, the two presidents retired to a private room, to further discuss the matters of the day.

    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.



    he 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 journalists present at the event were requested to sign an agreement to keep mum on the embarrassing comments. A Reuters reporter was among the journalists present and can confirm the veracity of the 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."

    He added that while it was annoying to have to refrain from publishing the information, the journalists are subject to precise rules of conduct.

    That Obama only tells the truth by accident is just my personal opinion. As an example, 2&1/2 years into his presidency Obama still says about America's problems, "It's all Bush's fault."
