Charles DeGaule Made to Look Like an Asshole by Dean Rusk

JFK’S Secretary of State, Dean Rusk, was in France in the early 60’s when Charles DeGaule, the French President, decided to pull out of NATO.

DeGaule said he wanted all US military out of France as soon as possible.

Rusk responded “does that include the 180,000 who are buried here?”

DeGaule could not respond.

…………. You could have heard a pin drop.
