Ecuador, ATPDEA and “US business groups”

Here’s a funny one. A certain amount of chagrin in The Wall Street Journal today about the decision to keep Ecuador inside the ATPDEA trade program. Here’s the moneyline

U.S. President Barack Obama said Tuesday that Ecuador would continue to enjoy trade preferences, while extending Bolivia’s suspension from the program……..While the decision on Bolivia was expected, U.S. business groups had hoped that Ecuador would also be taken off the program due to what they consider an unfavorable investment climate in the country.

Those “U.S. Business groups” include, of course The Wall Street Journal itself, as Correa is about to sue the newspaper’s ass for defamation about Mary Nasty O’Grady’s recent bullshit lies on Correa and his country. “We’re going to file suit against that newspaper because we’re fed up of its lies”, said Correa.

Hey….the WSJ can still have a gloat about Bolivia, can’t it..
