While not normally a major player in Middle East geo-politicking let alone war, in many ways Bolivia stole the show at today’s heated debate in the United Nations Security Council.
Bolivian Ambassador to the UN Sacha Llorenti gave a short history of American lies used to justify imperialistic ventures. He spoke in the way that only a Latin American socialist could, coming where anti-American tensions have run high for many decades.
The highlight was when he shamed Nikki Haley by holding up the infamous photo of Colin Powell waving a model tube of anthrax before the Security Council in 2003, in the now infamous run up to the Iraq war. Powell’s presentation was debunked as being a total fraud.
Now watch Sacha Llorenti’s show-stopping performance at the UN.
