Sid Blumenthal on BHL

An e-mail to US Sec. of State Hillary Clinton from her informal advisor Sidney Blumenthal contains this line:

 Sarkozy's occasional emissary, the intellectual self-promoter Bernard Henri-Levy, is considered by those in the NLC who have dealt with him as a semi-useful, semi-joke figure.  
Just wanted to get that out there. (The NLC is the Libyan National Liberation Council.)

Sorry, Libyan National Liberation Council. Read the whole PDF. It's all there, including description of BHL as a "self-promoter." Should undoubtedly have been sent on the secure server.

'semi-joke figure' is still quite generous.
