Does Alain Délétroz read this blog?

Remember that NGO, the International Crisis Group whose latest report on Bolivia was way off the mark? Well, yesterday the ICG Vice President Alain Délétroz seemed to be trying to make up to Evo a little bit by stating, "There can be no forgetting that the government of Morales is the first in Bolivian history to have achieved in filling the State treasury. Before, at the end of each year, the President had to go to Washington to beg. Furthermore, his use of the money is reasonable."

Cheers mate! Thanks for mentioning a fact we (a la Inca Kola News) recently pointed out and your group's distinguished analysis reporting failed to mention. Coincidence? Probably, but I would suggest that your field workers are paid too much. This Dude will take your cash. I'm sure Otto at IKN wouldn't mind either.

How sad is it when a few progressive bloggers do better at getting the facts straight than some supposedly very prestigious, and well-financed, fact-finding organization? And how much would it cost those people to pay attention BEFORE they open their mouths?

Unless, of course, they're not being touted or financed to pay attention, but to help provide pretexts for coups d'etat. In which case, it all makes perfect sense...
