TPG to Sell Stake to Kuwait, Singapore Sovereign-Wealth Funds

This is interesting -

In view of this -
(Larry Summers had criticisized SWFs in 2007)

Especially the following part -

Apart from the question of what foreign stakes would mean for companies, there is the additional question of what they might mean for host governments. What about the day when a country joins some "coalition of the willing" and asks the US president to support a tax break for a company in which it has invested? Or when a decision has to be made about whether to bail out a company, much of whose debt is held by an ally's central bank ?

What do you guys think ? How realistic is this risk of SWFs misusing (???) their "..." ?
