Didn't we see the Palais de la Concorde in "Homefront" and "Paradise Lost"?

At least, it was a wide shot of a futuristic Paris, with a pretty awesome-lookin' building in the foreground (which I took as the Palais), and the Eiffel Tower in the background....
Nope. That building bore no resemblance to what the Palais is described as being -- it wasn't the least bit cylindrical, and it wasn't on the site of the present-day Place de la Concorde. I don't think we need to take that building to be where President Jaresh-Inyo was working any more than we need to take an establishing shot of the Washington Monument in The West Wing to indicate where President Bartlet works.

Besides, "Homefront"/"Paradise Lost" was written nine years before A Time to Kill was published.
