    IMHO Lagarde story has nothing to with international politics, it’s just backlash of a dirty job she had to do for Sarkozy, the investigation is going on for quite a while, the story pops up regularly when new evidences are found or people interrogated. What she did is illegal, but she has nothing to fear as long as the system needs her.

    Shortly, during the 2007 presidential election the (so-called) left-wing entrepreneur Bernard Tapie (low version of a French Berlusconi) made a deal to support the right-wing candidate Sarkozy, in exchange of getting back the money that a bank (Crédit Lyonnais) had stolen him (during the resale of his sportswear company Adidas*). When Sarkozy has been elected, the new Minister of Finance Christine Lagarde had to “judge” the case, according to Bernard Tapie 403 millions euros of reparations, in a very dubious manner. I can try to find information in English if you want, but it doesn’t seem to be a lot online. May Google Translation on the French Wikipedia page is a good start?


    * Adidas = All Day I Dream About Synchronicity!? :-p

    I haven’t done my own research on the matter (yet), but I have a hard time believing the US was “surprised” by the Libya Bombing. I don’t question the statement that the United States is increasingly losing prestige and capacity to manipulate geopolitical conflicts (of convenience) with the same level of precision as in the past, but this doesn’t strike me as a good example of that. I can only speculate, but it seems to me that if the US really were “surprised” about the strike, I think it would’ve taken far longer for this information to surface. I’m inclined to interpret this as another example, like ISIS, of strategically broadening the scope of the regional conflict for the purpose of further destabilizing the region in typical divide and conquer fashion.
