Rory Carroll could he have been wrong about the lap top? Guardian crack journalist in fact mix up, no way thinks Dr Wall.
BoRev begs to differ:
So that magic laptop? The one that was filled with thousands of Emails proving forever that Chavez was a terrorist or whatever? Well here's the funny thing: they never contained any emails at all, not a single fucking one. There were thousands of email addresses, but no electronic messages that might divulge any secret conspiracies or special relationships or even a goddamned winking sideways smileyface thingy that would "link" anybody to anything, according to the under-oath testimony of the top Colombian anti-terrorism official assigned to investigate the whole deal in the first place.
Yeah, so...this raises some questions, like--Christ where to begin?--what exactly were the "huge caches of Emails" the Colombians leaked to the Economist last March, that formed the basis for their big hyperventilating profile thingy here? And what was the "leaked Email" that Guardian reporter Rory Carroll intercepted in May, showing that the FARC might be about to secure money from the Venezuelans? And then what were the "dozens of e-mails in the rebel computers" that were shown to narcissist-retardist Miami Herald columnist Andres Oppenheimer last July? And what were the emails that Human Rights Watch said "raised serious questions about Venezuela's relationship with the Colombian guerrillas"?
There were no emails. WTF? Seriously, were there even any laptops?
