I have a lot more I could say about this case, but I am going to mostly keep quiet and let interview subjects do the talking. That won’t be immediate, as I’m traveling. The Devil at DevilsExcrement.com makes good points and adds a document that I hadn’t seen until he sent it my way. Velly intellesting stuff.
There is one thing that I can say at once, as it is what I think and it’s also the message I got tonight from A. Reader: the real victim in this case is the PDVSA pensioner. This story has years to go before it plays out.
Please note (update March 8): the arrest warrants may look damning but they aren’t even legal indictments, much less the whole story. These guys will have their day in court and it will be interesting to hear their defense. I earlier called these documents “complaints” which was inaccurate. I regret any misperception that may have resulted from my earlier wording.
