France’s Europe Minister Is an Anti-American Nut

Cranmer tells us that:

According to France’s Europe Minister, Jean-Pierre Jouyet, the intervention of certain neocons ‘played a significant role in the Irish rejection of the Lisbon treaty’. In Le Monde (via EUobserver), M. Jouyet said: ‘Europe has powerful enemies on the other side of the Atlantic, gifted with considerable financial means. The role of American neo-conservatives was very important in the victory of the “No”.’

This sounded so weird that I checked the original inLe Monde :

Une analyse étayée par le secrétaire d’Etat aux affaires européennes, Jean-Pierre Jouyet : “L’Europe a des ennemis puissants de l’autre côté de l’Atlantique, dotés de moyens financiers considérables. Le rôle des néoconservateurs américains a été très important dans la victoire du non.”

The translation is accurate.
