You know that's actually a good question. This is a very unusual report for
Le Figaro. It's stuff that normally never gets published: Politically
explosive, totally unattributed, and totally revealing of the spook-infested
territory that journalists navigate. The real shocker for me is not the
mentioning of the CIA but just seeing the letters DGSE in a French
newspaper - this is really extremely rare. When France's closely controlled
press makes a move like this, the Quai d'Orsay is 100% behind it, meaning
that the French gov't intends to blow Washington's credibility wide open,
meaning that Dubya's coalition is as good as dead.
Blair's public humiliation in Syria is also a kiss of death for the
coalition. Pretty soon, the "US against them" rhetoric is going to have to
become the "US of A against them".
