Radio France's website basically says everyone is waiting around for the
results of the official inquiry.  In all honesty, I'm not surprised everyone
is displaying the Production Assistant's salute:  One hand over their
respective butts and the other pointing at somebody else.

Dominique de Villepin seems to sum up the position everyone is taking:
"Il est prudent d'attendre l'enquête avant de tirer la
moindre conclusion."  ==> It's wisest to wait for the investigation(?)
[to complete] before drawing even the smallest conclusion.

WARNING:  Translation courtesty of my somewhat rusty French
language studies.  Some words may mean different things when
interpreted by a true bilingual.  ;-)
