    I am sorry but Mr. Jaime Stiuso is unable to take you call at the moment. If you wish to suicide him in the near future, please leave a message after the tone and he may get back to you after he has finished heading for the hills.

    What crime are they claiming he has commited? Have they issued an arrest warrant? It sounds like he's breaking contractual obligations not criminal law.

    She just wanted to make it clear what the entire third world already knows: If you need something from the USA, you are literally fucked.

    The best thing to do is to cut the ties that bound us. After all, Argentina, you are a BRICSA country.

    You would expect the Ambassador of any serious country to have an audience with the respective level in the US political regime, not as in this case with an 'officer'.

    It seems like the US Government is trying to distance itself from the argie 'beauty' with the filthy hair. I wonder what that can be? :o)

    I am sure she is worried he will be brought out to testify against her after she no longer is president and loses her influence over the judiciary. No wonder she is freaking out.

    Didn't Argentina lose him in the first place? Why do they need the US to find him for them.

    Argentina, so depended on the US to get anything done.

    @4 TTT You are more confused than usual. It gets you lots of attention though.

    Argentina is regarded throughout Latin America and the rest of the world as a lawless, rogue state which refuses to abide by civilised standards of behaviour, consistently ignores court rulings and fails to meet its financial obligations. No wonder then that the United States treats it with the contempt it so richly deserves. The howls of outrage from the grotesque and criminal Corruptina Kirchner are music to our ears.

    Cooperation? Cristina is complaining about “cooperation” ? Mira vos. How about Argentina cooperating with paying its debts and a few hundred other matters of international consequence, before Argentina complains about “cooperation.” Argentina is the Poster Child of Uncooperative.

    Besides, Stiuso just might be onto a little more justice than Cristina can handle.

    @12 “Besides, Stiuso just might be onto a little more justice than Cristina can handle.”

    It would be amusing to see Stiuso do an Assange/Snowden on CFK and Argentina.

    Are they sure he isn’t hiding out in an Ecuadorian embassy somewhere, BA even.

    You would think that by now this Argentinian government, was quite used to its “demands” being completely ignored by other countries.

    Talk about “Billy no mates”, now they can’t even get people to acknowledge they have spoken, never mind answer them.

    Any chance of a “Book” coming out soon, do you think?

    Or will he disappear before he is “suicided”.

    Let’s face it, doesn’t look like the Americans are going to answer any questions.

    @17 They are probably looking at each other and mouthing 'Who'?

    I would laugh if he does turn up at an Ecuadorian Embassy seeking asylum. Oh, the dilemma. But he won't. If he was head of the Argentine intelligence service I doubt they will find him.

    I thought that the UN General Assembly was meant for leaders to talk about matters that interest the World, not a place to vent personal gripes.
    I don't see why the US has any obligation to inform Stiuso's whereabouts, specially if he's in the country legally. He may not even be in the US, and returning to the Argentine is tantamount to a death sentence, by suicide.

    As to CFK's presidential candidate, Scioli, announcing that Argentina would like to join the BRICS, this, if it became reality, would just speed up the demise of yet another trade group, and towards this objective, Brazil is already doing its part.

    @19 They are also supposed to keep their rants to 15 minutes. CFK rambled for closer to 45 minutes. They need a trap door.

    At a time when the world faces many grave problems, everything from Islamic terrorism to economic recession, the UN General Assembly was incredulous to hear Corruptina Kirchner shrieking and squawking about someone hardly anyone has ever heard of.
    The reason for old gargoyle face's outrage is obvious: According to reliable sources in Washington, Jaime Stiuso has been singing like a canary to the United States authorities, so Corruptina has good reason to be frightened, very, very frightened. Her dream of retiring to mansions in Monaco and Marbella while she spends the millions she has embezzled from the Argentine people is turning into a nightmare. This grotesque woman knows her future is now very likely to end in the stinking prison cell she so richly deserves.

    Delegates to the UN General Assembly talk about the “Kirchner coffee break”, the moment when Corruptina Kirchner walks towards the podium and they all stampede for the exit doors to enjoy some refreshments. So Corruptina is left facing row after row of empty seats as she launches into her usual, boring, tired, meaningless rant about those disgusting sub-humans occupying the Falklands. When so many serious problems afflict the world, she shrieks and squeals about 3,000 islanders living in peace and prosperity.
    She is too stupid, too filled with hate, to recognise she is insulting the intelligence of the General Assembly, so much so that delegates rush out for coffees while she whines about her mythical “global cause”. It is laughable and pathetic.
    But what happened at her latest appearance at the General Assembly? She forgot the Falklands and spent an inordinate amount of time screaming about Jaime Stiuso, the Argentine spy who has disappeared with enough Kirchner secrets to fill the dozens of suitcases she takes on her shopping expeditions to Paris.
    No wonder Corruptina ignored the Falklands. Now she faces far more serious problems that eventually will destroy her and her farcical “global cause”.

    Maybe Jaime Stiuso is already 'disappeared' and this is all distraction?

    Not to worry. Stiuso is comfortably protected and deliberately quiet at the moment and probably will be for some time. What is happening during the silence should be something of immense worry to Kretina, and since she can't stand being other than the centre of attention, she just naturally gravitates to these petulant outbursts which the civilised world find so amazingly silly and quintessentially Peronist. Argentina, it is for good reason that the world is laughing at you.

    He could be hiding out in the Falklands.

    Watch out for articles in the Penguin News about Swiss bank accounts stuffed full of pilfered millions.

    All their dirty secrets revealed to the world from the Malvinas, we would have MalviLeaks.

    Now that would be funny to watch.
