Obama asks Sarkozy for Afghan help

Sarkozy & ObamaOn his visit to the U.S., French President Sarkozy has made it clear that France is “an invaluable partner and ally of the United States.”  Does that mean he’ll send more French combat troops to Afghanistan, as President Obama is requesting at their White House meeting?  International Relations Professor William Keylor says opinion polls in France, England, Germany and other allied countries show dwindling support for the NATO mission in Afghanistan.
