I mean really. What else is there to say to this?
Laptop computers have become treasure troves of evidence for Colombian investigators probing crimes committed by far-right militias and leftist rebels.
So many Colombians were dismayed to learn that prison authorities didn’t immediately secure laptops and cell phones belonging to most of the 14 paramilitary warlords who were yanked from cells on May 12 and extradited to the United States to stand trial for drug trafficking.
The mishandled evidence has become a national scandal, and the prisons director only made matters worse when he told Colombia’s leading newspaper that he had no way of preventing the warlords from continuing to lead criminal networks from their cells.
Oh, I know. I know! How about bombing the fuck out of paramilitary encampments on the Venezuelan side of the border, where Manuel Rosales (the imperial stooge with whom Chavecito mopped the floor in the last presidential election) is said to be harboring them? Then, I’m sure, we can put to rest once and for all the question of whether there is actually such a thing as a bomb-proof laptop (which the whore media won’t ask).
And of course, we could also clean up a LOT of right-wing paramilitary narcoterrorist scum that way.
Oh, I know. I KNOW. It’s a modest proposal, but it will never happen. And we all know why.
