    Apart from how fucked up and shitty it is to drag the guy's dead father (disappeared by the military and never found) into an argument, and that the remarks could easily be construed as a threat or blackmail, Bolsolixo just claimed he has knowledge of a crime. What a POS.

    Also, what is up with that hairstyle? Trying to look more like his idol?

Washington’s protection of Moro is multifaceted. Even the US Consulate recently tried to hinder international travel for the children of Glenn Greenwald, the journalist whose revelations upset Moro.
