• Washington Post mentions comments of de Villepin at Bilderberg conference: "American anger toward France was reignited last weekend by remarks that de Villepin made at Versailles to a foreign-policy gabfest known as the Bilderberg meeting. Though the gathering was supposedly off the record, European and American sources have volunteered accounts of comments that infuriated Americans there. It was only because Chirac and Pope John Paul II opposed the American war in Iraq that the world was able to avoid a Christian-Muslim "clash of civilizations," de Villepin reportedly said in response to a question. At another point, he implied that if America had just made clear from the outset that its goal in Iraq was regime change, then the French might have been willing to go along."
