    His sentence would really depend on what he actually gave them. If he truly did give readily available data, then he got a pretty good sentence. If it was anything classified to any degree of restriction, there are sentencing guidelines.

    Giving help to Venezuela to build nuclear weapons?

    Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha.

    They can't provide their citizens with bog rolls, sanitary pads, cooking oil and gound maize and they want nuclear bombs.

    If EVER their is a good enough reason to execute the entire government this is it.

    I don't see a problem. Most argies should be in prison. Based on this site, I haven't been able to identify as many as 5 argentines that should be outside a prison.
