Libya became so flush with cash that Bernard L. Madoff, the New York financial manager who stole billions of dollars in a long-running Ponzi scheme, approached officials overseeing the country’s $70 billion sovereign fund a few years ago about an “investment opportunity,” according to a State Department summary of the episode in 2010. “We did not accept,” a Libyan official reported.

That Qaddafi crew knows a gonif when they see one. We could learn a lot from the maniac. You can’t hold together a nation of bickering medieval warlords unless you have some innate talent. Hillary Clinton should go there and learn at the feet of the master.
