Postre: Brazil: Dilma Roussef and Charles Rodney Chandler (Joe Listo, Brazil) (John Eipper, USA, 09/14/10 4:36 am)

Not unlike Robert McCabe (12 September), a lot of people in Brazil would like to have access to Dilma Roussef's criminal files. Surprisingly, the Supreme Military Court has put a tight lid on them on the grounds that "since they date back to 1968 they cannot be handled without physical damage." This is odd, to say the least, given that newspapers and books printed in the 19th century can still be touched if handled with proper care. It can also be noted that the remaining files available on the Internet related with the various criminal acts perpetrated by the then existing militia do not mention terrorists' names.
The intention of the government is crystal clear: Dilma's dark and criminal acts, if refreshed in the people's memory, would change the results of the presidential elections. To me it is unthinkable that a person who has engaged in assassinations and bank robberies can occupy the office of the presidency in any country, worldwide. One should bear in mind that Dilma and her cohorts were not fighting for freedom or democracy. They wanted to install communism in this country and transform it into a bigger Cuba.
JE comments: As a former "library rat" who's read thousands of pages of archived newspapers, I can assure the Brazilian Military Court that 42-year-old documents can be handled without inflicting damage. I agree with Joe Listo that their excuse is pretty lame.
