A New Era of German-American Understanding?

Posted by John Rosenthal

In an article on George Bush’s visit to Germany last week, the NYTimes reported that German Chancellor Angela Merkel (in a joint press conference with the President) had insisted that Israel "must use proportionate means" in its current conflict with Hezbollah. The problem is: she didn’t say that. For what she did say and for a comparison between George Bush’s reception in Germany this time and his reception in Germany in May 2002, during his first visit to Germany, see my new article on TCSDaily.
