Description

Angel Paez, a member of the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists links the U.S. government to Vladimiro Montesinos, a "corrupt advisor to former Peruvian President Fujimori, who stands accused of human rights abuses and murder. Not only did the story confirm a long-suspected belief that there was a relationship between the two offices, but it also affirmed that even though U.S. authorities knew about Montesinos' corrupt ways, they were willing to support him financially (with at least $1 million a year) in order to have Peru as an ally in the drug war. All the while, Montesinos was buying weapons from Jordan and selling them to the very Colombia guerrillas the United States was at war with."
