This guy is the Veterans Affairs Minister, not the Foreign Minister or the Prime Minister. The comments were made just prior to a state visit from the former colonial power. What does this do to the relationship between the President of Algeria and the President de la Republique. I embarrasses the President of Algeria. What would hppen if the US Secretary of Agriculture said something nasty about Sarkozy just before a state visit to the US? Lots of embarrassment for Bush.
