Bernard-Henri Lévy and Libya

Here is a wonderfully self-aggrandizing interview with Bernard-Henri Lévy, taking credit for getting France to take the lead in intervening in Libya. Interesting for lots of reasons, no doubt, not least because this turns out to prove that ‘left-wing humanitarian interventionists’ have had too much influence on French foreign policy, according to David Frum at least. Always good to remind oneself of what the outside world thinks count as ‘left-intellectuals’.

One thought on “Bernard-Henri Lévy and Libya

  1. Bernard-Henri Lévy is an entertainer, pretty amusing at times, not to be taken seriously. David Frum reveals an American habit – any intellectual comment from Europe seems to be somehow leftist, especially if it is from France. He is deadly serious, but amusing nonetheless.
