Fausta, as usual, has been watching the French press, this time about the recent release of their two journalist hostages from Iraq. Apparently, the whole episode has caused confusion and some self-criticism in their political and chattering classes. Fausta concludes:
Interestingly, while there has been videos of the hostages’ families and the public at large celebrating, no video of the released hostages has yet been shown.
BTW, the French are insisting they did not pay a ransom.
