George Soros’ think tank INET apparently sponsored Alexis Tsipras’ trip to the US. According to an articlein the German Wirtschaftswoche magazine.

It is particularly pertinent  to recall, at this point, that it was German Finance Minister, Schauble himself, who first proposed a referendum on proposals for Greece back in May and that this same Schauble had been arguing for Greek withdrawal from the euro in the face of the position of Angela Merkel. Merkel now looks on the way out if the latest take down on her by Spiegel is anything to go by. Could it be that, after a murky and convoluted process that has left everyone perplexed, Schauble has won?
