FOD Tuesday

A little microphone-left-on gaffe to make you smile or cringe this Tuesday morning:
Microphones accidently left on after G20 meeting pick up private conversation between US, French presidents. Sarkozy admits he 'can't stand' Israeli premier. Obama: You're fed up with him? I have to deal with him every day!
Reported late and very little because:
...journalists present at the event were requested to sign an agreement to keep mum on the embarrassing comments. A Reuters reporter was among the journalists present and can confirm the veracity of the comments.
 A member of the media confirmed Monday that "there were discussions between journalists and they agreed not to publish the comments due to the sensitivity of the issue." 
He added that while it was annoying to have to refrain from publishing the information, the journalists are subject to precise rules of conduct.
Pardon me while I change my pants over the hysterical claim that journalists abide by any rules of conduct.

The cat's out of the bag now. The comments are being widely reported this a.m.

I'd love to hear what Netanyahu has to say about obama.
