If the weight of the evidence is not sufficient to even file charges against the individuals for their advice (Hills) and conduct (Hills and other Chiquita officials); how can it be sufficient to support the patina of a beyond a reasonable doubt standard for the corporate conviction? Did they even seek civil forfeiture of the ill begotten gains accululated in salary, bonuses, stock gains etc. from these royal executives (hint: No)? Boy that hefty investment that Rod Hills and his wife Carla made to become Bush Pioneer/Rangers sure is paying off handsomely now.

Pretty interesting. No mention of Chertoff. No mention of union organizers who some in Colombia say were killed with the knowledge of or possibly even at the direction of the company. In all the listings of how did the payments keep the workers safe in their communities, off the farms, etc. no mention of workers who might have been harmed by the terrorists even with the payments being made and what that indicated. No mention about the Colombian discussions for extradition of certain of the officers and no request that the court impose anything, even probationary, on those who took the Bush "bring it on" stance on letting DOJ "come after" the company.

And people have trouble believing Bush buddies and/or his best friends, the Saudi royal family, might have financed the terrorists of 9/11? We are so naive...

Thanks EW, Thank God that there are people like you to take up where Molly left off. Lord knows she would be having a field day with stuff like this.
So how can Chertof get by with this kind of action?

"The Department of Justice never authorized defendant Chiquita to continue under any circumstances the Company's payments to the AUC--not at the meeting on April 24, 2003, nor at any other point."

See- it's simple, see. The DoJ is not the DHS - see.
