Shaken by sobs, his head bowed, a former Guatemalan commando testified last week that he wept as he hurled a little boy to his death in a village well 31 years ago while a commanding officer, Lt. Jorge Vinicio Sosa Orantes, snarled: “This is a job for men!”

Sosa, now a 55-year-old U.S. citizen, watched that grim testimony from a defense table guarded by U.S. marshals in a federal courtroom here. His former comrade-in-arms, Gilberto Jordán, accused Sosa of playing a lead role in one of the worst war crimes in the recent history of the hemisphere: the massacre of 250 people in the Guatemalan hamlet of Dos Erres in 1982. Sosa is charged with fraudulently obtaining U.S. citizenship years later by concealing his participation in the massacre.

how interesting

That combined with the odd behavior of even the prosecution regarding the credibility of one of the witnesses seems to suggest witness tampering and even interference with the trail process itself.

Can you say school of the AmeriKAAs

You gotta love the whole..........we can't do anything about the massacre but, by golly, we got you for lying on your immigration papers.

Considering the number of jack offs that have gotten into the country legally it's more than a little weird. So, it looks more like a everybody look surprised thingie.

yeah-ya I get it - and we'll schedule court hearings next to dates on the calendar that coincide with House budget debates and cross our fingers. And when anyone sayz anything bad about a witness, we'll just

look very thoughtful, purse our lip, and say Oh, I see, of course. That just won't do, how would it look?
