Sarkozy reinvents history: French leader posts Facebook image of him at Berlin Wall 'the night it came down'... except that he was still in Paris that night
By PETER ALLEN
Nicolas Sarkozy was last night accused of living in 'total fantasy' after claiming he was among the first people to tear down the Berlin Wall.
In an excited entry on his Facebook social networking site, accompanied by a photo, the French president said he spent November 9 1989 hacking away at the wall with a pickaxe.
But official records place the then 34-year-old Neuilly mayor in Paris on that day. It is all but certain that he did not get to Berlin until at least a week later.
Now, what you don't know is that Sarkozy was also present in numerous Historical events; the proof in pictures:
