"Nigeria arrests Taylor guards"
29/03/2006 08:43 - (SA)


ARTICLE SNIPPET: "Abuja - Nigeria has arrested 22 police officers who had been deployed to keep watch on former Liberian leader Charles Taylor, says a force spokesperson on Tuesday.

Taylor had been living in exile in a plush villa in the southeastern Nigerian city of Calabar, but was found to have left the house late on Monday, two days after President Olusegun Obasanjo promised to send him home.

Although the war crimes suspect was not considered by Nigerian authorities to be under house arrest, security forces were supposed to keep watch on him and international prosecutors had demanded he be detained."

Let's see, Taylor "escaped." Nigerian Pres Obsanjo says it wasn't his responsibility to hand over Taylor. Bush is scheduled to meet with Obsanjo tomorrow. Members of Congress called on Bush to cancel the meeting, and the WH hinted it would.

Surprise! Taylor is arrested crossing the border.

I guess Obsanjo decided all that good old American foreign aid was worth more than Taylor's bribe money in the long run.

I've seen fire and I've seen rain
I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end
I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
But I always thought that I'd see you again

Opps... thats James Taylor...

Pat Robertson will be heartbroken. Now he'll never see his good friend again -- because Taylor is headed for a hanging in Sierra Leone.
