Saturday Morning Open Thread | Main | Spending Addict Promises To Go Cold Turkey. But First, One More Sweet, Sweet Hit. [Andy]

Baby Doc: I came back to help "rebuild" and unlock $4.6M in loot frozen in a Swiss bank account, but mostly for the $4.6M in loot.

The Swiss didn't want to give him the money he looted from Haiti while dictator until he could show Haitian authorities weren't interested in prosecuting him.

...Duvalier, 59, made the trip just before a Swiss law that could entitle him to at least $4.6 million takes effect on Feb. 1. To collect the funds, he would have to show Haitian authorities aren't interested in prosecuting him...
See, Baby Doc, like all tin pot dictators is all about the rebuilding...that Swiss Feb 1 date being in such ummm...temporal proximity is of course pure coincidence. If you can't trust a ruthless dictator, who can you trust? I'd buy a used car from this guy.

Unfortunately, for Baby Doc, Haitian authorities ARE interested in prosecuting him. Of course, Haiti being Haiti, chances are he can buy himself out of that by agreeing to transfer the a big chunk of the stolen Swiss loot to the people bringing the charges, so it can become their stolen loot.

I think the laws of physics and thermodynamics apply to loot. Loot is conserved, but its entropy is always increasing proportional to the "deep shit" you need to buy yourself out of.
