The Government continues tangling itself in lies in the case of the Foreign Minister of Colombian terrorist group FARC. We have gone from ignorance about the possibility that Mr. Granda was in Venezuela or kidnapped in Venezuela to accusations about bounty hunters kidnapping Granda in broad daylight. Of course, he makes no mention of the fact that Colombians may have perpetrated a kidnapping in Caracas in broad daylight and taken Granda all the way to the border without the Chavez Government doing anything about it. How efficient no? Even today, the Government continues to deny that it knew about Grandas invitation, participation presence in the II Bolivarian Congress, while overwhelming evidence shows that they had to know.
This is very similar to the Ballestas or Montesinos cases in which the Government tried to hide its role in those cases, only to get so tangled in its own lies that the whole thing looked foolish. That is what happens when spin doctors get used to being successful. The same is true in the Anderson case, the hero Prosecutor that was given the countrys highest honors when killed is now being accused of blackmailing those he was accusing.
