Here we go, a potential conspiracy.

I was looking into the now deposed Ben Ali of Tunisia for another thread, and came upon his education, which is particularly interesting:



Education and military career

Ben Ali was born in Hammam-Sousse on 3 September 1936. While a student at Sousse Secondary School, Ben Ali joined the National resistance to French colonial rule serving as a liaison for the regional Neo-Destour party. For these activities, he was temporarily expelled from school and imprisoned.[4]
Upon completion of secondary school, Ben Ali earned degrees from the Special Inter-service School in Saint-Cyr, France, the Artillery School in Châlons-sur-Marne, France, the Senior Intelligence School (Maryland, USA) and the School for Anti-Aircraft Field Artillery (Texas, USA). His professional military career began in 1964 as a Tunisian staff officer. During his time in military service, he established the Military Security Department and directed its operations for 10 years. He briefly served as military attaché to Morocco and Spain before being appointed General Director of National Security in 1977.[5]

So, basically, in high school he is jailed for being a "freedom fighter" (or "insurgent" if you were from France), but proceeds to study at the Artillery School in Châlons-sur-Marne, France, the Senior Intelligence School (Maryland, USA) and the School for Anti-Aircraft Field Artillery (Texas, USA).

One thing is certain, is that his family must have been wealthy to send him to study overseas... unless he got his funding elsewhere? (cue Twilight zone music here!)
