When France blocked a nuclear agreement with Iran  last weekend, it showed that U.S. leadership is no longer trusted, says Fox News Channel's Brit Hume.

"Whether France is really the power that blew up this near-agreement or whether it was the Iranians pulling away remains to be seen," Hume said Monday on Fox's "Special Report with Bret Baier."

Whatever the case, Hume said, France clearly was sounding the alarm.

"And when France sounds the alarm about some course that the United States is leading the way toward, I think we all should be alarmed, because France isn't exactly known as a hawkish country," he said.

The fact that France is nervous suggests it doesn't trust the United States' leadership the way it and much of the rest of the world once did, he said.

"[President Barack Obama] wants to lead from behind," Hume said. "Maybe France is showing how that's done."
