Uncivilized, toi

Bill Gertz reports in the Washington Times that Senator Ted Stevens is calling for an investigation of arm sales in recent months by a French company to Iraq. Stevens points to reports that a French company is selling aircraft and helicopter parts to Iraq its French-made Mirage jets and Gazelle attack helicopters. The U.S. State Department will neither confirm nor deny that such sales have occurred, citing its policy not to comment on intelligence matters. We have no way of knowing right now whether the sales have occurred and, if so, whether the French government is complicit. But does anyone doubt that the French government would rather see the United States fail, or at least struggle, in its campaign against Iraq than see it succeed outright?
