THE DEATH OF NATO
Drudge has a developing story on French help, confirmed from captured Iraqi records, given to Iraq about confidential meetings between the United States and France. If this proves to be true
the United States will have little recourse but to terminate it's military alliance with France because having been betrayed diplomatically, the United States can no longer share sensitive information, intelligence or military technology with the French government. Apparently Berlin may have similarly been involved with Iraq. NATO, for all practical purposes, will be dead.
President Chirac has destroyed the most successful military alliance in history and managed to gain absolutely nothing for his country.
