Deconstructing Giusti

Do not miss Setty’s epic post on Luis Giusti and the brewing scandal at Colombian private oil company Alange Energy.

It’s compelling and – despite Setty’s best efforts – incendiary. An absolute must read.

As I wrote on Setty’s comment section, I can’t for the life of me understand why the Venezuelan government isn’t running with this. I mean, this kind of thing happens once in a blue moon: this is a proper scandal, not some trumped up BS, that neatly makes a long-cherished chavista ideological point…and they won’t swing?! What’s up with that?!

Maybe, as Setty surmises, it’s because to really get the story they’d have to, y’know, flip through back issues of El Nacional, and realizing she’s on the same side as Miguel Henrique Otero would cause Evita Golinger’s head to split in two.
