Jacob Ostreicher remains in jail in Bolivia, after having been used unwittingly as a pawn of the GOP in America - as I posted on 8 August at this site. Secret talks failed, as the GOP did not know how to deal with the situation, got scared after talk about this leading to Mitt Romney, and eventually lost interest in Jacob's case; they also knew by about mid-September that they were going to lose the elections, and Jacob was no longer needed. So he got left to the dishonest folks in Bolivia who did not mind making a bigger diplomatic mess of it than it was - and the formerly unnamed official, Fernando Rivera, to whom I alluded on this site, saw his only chance to make some dinero was to extort Jacob or take his assets. The Bolivian govnerment, headed by Evo Morales, sensed something was wrong, and arrested Rivera and five of his partners-in-crime. They are now in jail, but so is Ostreicher, and it is not clear what the next move is.
Ironically, there are still parties who want to use this against MAS and the Morales government, which is only trying to do the right thing, though they do not have all the facts.
But we are seeing some light at the end of the tunnel and hopefully Ostreicher will be set free and the MAS government will have more useful information about the GOP and its antics.
