Sarkozy Trusts Obama

"I trust him. I don't need guarantees. I trust him. I trust his word. And I trust his intelligence," Sarkozy said of Obama.

WASHINGTON---At a joint press conference in Strasbourg, France on Friday, French President Sarkozy spoke warmly about the United States--but said the operation of the military prison in Guantanamo "was not in keeping with U.S. values."

Obama and First Lady Michelle are in France for a NATO summit. Sarkozy gave Obama a warm reception last summer when Obama brought his campaign to Europe. Obama also received Sarkozy--then contemplating a run for the French presidency--at his Senate office in 2006.

"I trust him. I don't need guarantees. I trust him. I trust his word. And I trust his intelligence," Sarkozy said of Obama.
