Kerstman gul voor Fortis-top: worden in België onkunde en wanbeheer dan nooit bestraft?

Opnieuw: welke politieke spelletjes werden daar gespeeld? Jean-Paul Servais is een voormalig kabinetschef van Didier Reynders en is ondanks de meest onwaarschijnlijke fouten en kemels ... nog steeds voorzitter van de FSMA, de opvolger van de CBFA.

Hoe is dit mogelijk? Worden in België onkunde en wanbeheer dan nooit bestraft? Bij DEXIA was meer dan 90% van alle rommel en ellende afkomstig uit Frankrijk en toch aanvaardde minister van Financiën Didier Reynders een deal waarbij België opdraait voor meer dan 50% van alle kosten!  Fortis gratis naar BNP-Paribas, België draagt de grootste lasten in het DEXIA-drama en Didier Reynders werd prompt benoemd tot Commandeur in het Légion d’Honneur wegens grote verdiensten verleend aan de Franse Republiek. In België vindt iedereen dat allemaal blijkbaar heel normaal.  Ik stel mij daar vragen bij.

How to explain the KGB’s amazing success identifying CIA agents in the field?
Thus one productive line of inquiry quickly yielded evidence: the differences in the way agency officers undercover as diplomats were treated from genuine foreign service officers (FSOs). The pay scale at entry was much higher for a CIA officer; after three to four years abroad a genuine FSO could return home, whereas an agency employee could not; real FSOs had to be recruited between the ages of 21 and 31, whereas this did not apply to an agency officer; only real FSOs had to attend the Institute of Foreign Service for three months before entering the service; naturalized Americans could not become FSOs for at least nine years but they could become agency employees; when agency officers returned home, they did not normally appear in State Department listings; should they appear they were classified as research and planning, research and intelligence, consular or chancery for security affairs; unlike FSOs, agency officers could change their place of work for no apparent reason; their published biographies contained obvious gaps; agency officers could be relocated within the country to which they were posted, FSOs were not; agency officers usually had more than one working foreign language; their cover was usually as a “political” or “consular” official (often vice-consul); internal embassy reorganizations usually left agency personnel untouched, whether their rank, their office space or their telephones; their offices were located in restricted zones within the embassy; they would appear on the streets during the working day using public telephone boxes; they would arrange meetings for the evening, out of town, usually around 7.30 p.m. or 8.00 p.m.; and whereas FSOs had to observe strict rules about attending dinner, agency officers could come and go as they pleased.
