Bush and Sarkozy look to bury “freedom fries” era

IHT reports:

Since taking office last year, Sarkozy has done much to roll back the legacy of French-U.S. relations left by Chirac, who had angered the Bush administration with his outspoken opposition to military action against Iraq.

That prompted some indignant Americans to rename french fries “freedom fries” and boycott products such as French cheese, drawing heavy publicity but only a modest following.

Personally, I’m still upset about the XYZ affair.
