U.S. President Barack Obama (right) and French President Francois Hollande take part in a bilateral meeting on the sidelines of the G7 Summit at the Schloss Elmau castle resort near Garmisch-Partenkirchen, in southern Germany on June 8, 2015.

OBAMA AND HOLLANDE MEET:

How things have changed.

When French President François Hollande visits the White House Tuesday, he will be the one who’s beating the drums of war, calling for a robust international coalition in the Middle East and declaring that France is in a state of emergency.

A dozen years ago, it was a French President — Jacques Chirac — who was calling for restraint as George W. Bush was bristling for war with Saddam Hussein in Iraq following the September 11 attacks. And it was a French foreign minister who warned that Washington might win the war but lose the peace if it fractured Iraq.
