French President Jaques Chirac passes under the entrance gate at the former Auschwitz concentration camp in Oswiecim, Poland

I don't know why but I get the impression that Chirac is just a tad uncomfortable. Or rather, he should be. Ok, Chirac is a politician and he has to do all sorts of things that he probably hates doing. On the Chirac hate meter I think this visit has to be at least an 8. On the other hand maybe Chirac is so dense he doesn't understand why he should be embarrassed. Afterall, the French are masters at slippery art of morality, that would be French morality.
