Ségolène Royal's selection by the Socialists really angers me. She still refuses to come clean about her and her family's role in the state-sponsored terrorist attack of the sinking the Rainbow Warrior.
In 1985, when Mitterrand gave orders for the terrorist attack on the Rainbow Warrior Ségolène Royal was working as Conseillère Technique au Secrétariat Général de la Présidence de la République and very likely was involved or at least knowledgeable about the attack.
Her brother Gérard Royal, was involved in planting of the bomb that sunk the Rainbow Warrior and killed Greenpeace Photographer Fernando Pereira. He was implicated by his brother Antoine Royal.
Ségolène Royal has refused to come clean about her or her brother's role in this express terrorist attack and to condemn this act of State-sponsored French terrorism which her and her family were so integrally involved. In fact she seems to wear it as a badge of courage for the Republic.
With choices like this for their presidency, no wonder the situation in France is hopeless!!
Sarkozy vs Royal= Cardinal Richelieu vs Marie Antoinette
And Sarkozy.....--don't even get me started on this pseudo-populist ideologue. Talk about the "worst excesses of the French Revolution".
See Wikipedia Article.
Having talked to my friend who is an ED of one of the large European Greenpeace Offices. They are shocked and dismayed by this selection and her arrogance and contempt for the people and families involved in this terrorism as well as her contempt for the environment and related issues generally.
I have cross-posted this in part from my article on Daily-Kos.
