Bolivia: Evo and America

Both Jim Shultz and Boli-Nica are doubtful of Evo Morales’ most recent claim that the US is trying to assassinate him, or as Shultz puts it: “I also doubt Pat Robertson has gone freelance.” Alvaro Ruiz-Navajas, however, notes “yet another paradox of Evo's government: The administration has accused the US of conspiring to assassinate Evo and at the same time have asked to renew the ATPDEA (Andean Trade Promotion and Drug Eradication Act).” And to compound the contradictions, Eduardo Avila says that Morales has accepted former US president, Bill Clinton's invitation to attend the Call to Action summit to take place September in New York.
