Is it just me or does the latest Columbian hostage rescue seem highly implausible and scripted? Isn't it odd that McCain happened to have been a POW and just happened to have been visiting Columbia? And isn't is odd that there are endless glossy documentaries that instantly appear after the rescue? And isn't it strange that the Columbian government with its savage rightwing death-sqauds who are infamous for torture and killing decided to leave the area without firing a single shot after the "rescue" was complete? Would a POW who really thought he was being transferred look into a camera and talk about his service to the "glorious Columbian military?" As scripts go, I could have written this as a high school senior between my tossing spitwads at the teacher and chugging beer in the parking lot. The CIA needs to hire a new PR team.
