Yesterday the Daily Beast‘s Eric Pape reported that French President Nicolas Sarkozy “hand-delivered a letter from fugitive Oscar-winning filmmaker Roman Polanski last week to President Barack Obama on the sidelines of the international anti-nuke proliferation summit in Washington, according to a small and little-noticed article embedded in the prestigious French political magazine, L’Express.” I’m a Polanski forgiver, but if I were Obama I wouldn’t touch this one with a 20-foot pole.
