Pardon My French

I remember when those on the left side of the aisle wanted America to have a foreign policy more like France.

Huh (tip to Instapundit):

The Obama administration is under fire for briefly censoring a portion of video footage in which French president Francois Hollande uttered the phrase 'Islamist terrorism' – a pairing of words that the president has consistently cut out of its homeland security lexicon.

Calling the omission the result of 'a technical issue with the audio,' a red-faced White House re-posted an unedited version of the footage late on Friday.

Hollande's remarks Thursday in Washington, following a bilateral meeting with President Barack Obama, urged continued cooperation between European nations and the United States to fight what the White House refers to as 'violent extremism.'

It is unclear what kind of "technical issue" could have removed the "Islamist terror" language by accident.

Although I suspect there was some sort of universal "find and replace" feature on that sensitive issue (behold the ancient look of my original blog!).

This administration has never felt that America is at war, in my opinion.
