Jeremy Scahill and The Nation reveal that Bolivia is included in the list of countries in Washington's "secret war", where Joint Special Operations Command forces are deployed to act in "pre-emptive or retaliatory strikes". These secret units are otherwise known to the rest of the world as terrorist sleeper cells.
But this revelation does not come as news to Bolivia. Above is one of these dirt bags, Lt. Commander Gregory Michel photographed in 2008 during his arrest by Bolivian police after he pulled a gun on a prostitute in Santa Cruz. He was freed within hours on insistence of the US Embassy, claiming "diplomatic immunity". By coincidence, this foolish incident occurred just weeks prior to the attempted fascist coup in Santa Cruz.
