I posted something about this last week, I believe, but it's still making headlines:
'Mission Paris recommends that that the USG reinforce our negotiating position with the EU on agricultural biotechnology by publishing a retaliation list when the extend "Reasonable Time Period" expires.'
The cable goes on to cite France's pivotal role in the EU's acceptance of GM crops, and the need for the United states to:
'calibrate a target retaliation list that causes some pain across the EU since this is a collective responsibility, but that also focuses in part on the worst culprits.'
In defense of this position, the cable's author makes the following claim in paragraph 5:
'... farmers, once they have had experience with biotech, become its staunchest supporters.'
The cable also makes numerous references to 'MON-810,' better known as YieldGard.
