The French Dieterich

Quico says: I’m starting to think of Bernard Henri-Lévy as the French Heinz Dieterich: a writer who combines deep insights with flashes of baffling idiocy in seemingly random proportions. His latest piece, on the death of Iván Ríos, (whom Henri-Lévy actually interviewed a few years back) has lots of the former and not that much of the latter.
