French Willing to Reduce Iraqi Debt ... 

Or so say the news reports today. The Fox News reporter notes that the French have agreed to ease Iraq's debt burden to them, "without any quid pro quo" from the US. I'll believe it when I see it.

But if true, I wouldn't be surprised if there is in fact an undisclosed quid pro quo.

What might it be? How about, "You forgive $x billion of Iraq's debt to you and we won't make public the sleazy illegal deals between your government and Saddam in violation of numerous UNSC resolutions. And by the way, we have ironclad documentary proof of those deals, gleaned from the records of Saddam's regime that the Baathists weren't able to destroy. Here are some copies for you to ponder."
