Meanwhile, to emphasize that Bolivia really is doing a good job in cracking down on smugglers, another story hit today which tells how its FELCN drug enforcement agents took days to stake out a gang and then finally moved in, arresting an Italian, a Peruvian and ten Bolivians along with 232 kilos of marching powder. All without the aid of a safety net or the US DEA (often involved with the smuggling, not the arresting).
Finally, although clearly biased in favour of Evo’s team I do like this headline from BoliviaSol today. “The Allies of the USA are the World’s Biggest Producers of Cocaine”. I like it cos it’s true and it cuts to the chase.
