Over the past year it is more an impression I get when listening to US administration comments.
Washington fears that its influence over European strategic defence thinking may be diluted. The US is particularly concerned about French insistence that the EU should have an independent military planning apparatus, which could draw on military resources presently at the disposal of Nato.
Clinton supported the idea of a rapid reaction force, but this support has not carried into the Bush administration.
