A 12 02 95 Bloomberg newsstory is headlined:
Latin American nations will help U.S. combat
The newsstory's datelined:
BUENOS AIRES (Dec 2, 1995 - 16:38 EST)
A communique issued after a two-day meeting of ministers
and anti-drug officials from throughout the Americas said
countries had agreed to...establish systems to identify
transfers and deposits that could be linked to illegal
Please note: NOT transfers and deposits that
are so linked
but t & d's that
COULD BE so linked,
Perhaps that's why US Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin exclaimed
...this conference was an enormous step forward.
Countries in the region were encouraged to follow the U.S.
lead in setting up organizations which use computerized
technology to search data bases for suspicious transactions,
Such organizations can be distant, official organizations or
they can be neighborhood, job-creating, community-aware, entre-
preneurial blessings. Anyway you like it !
One selling-point at the conference:
Crime organizations such as the Yakuza in Japan, the Col-
ombian drug cartels and the Italian mafia depend on money
laundering to place their gains beyond the reach of the

He would have us believe he doesn't know where to shop.
The illegals can spend profits on neighborhood troops, troops
armed --one way or another-- by the world's most successful

destabilized --amenable to penetration by money bags who know

The advantage to the money bags? It diverts "profits that
can't be spent" from directly competing with them.
The advantage to the illegals? Neighborhood troops protect
turf and provide inexpensive medical treatment for those with
The advantage to the politicos? Low intensity warfare keeps
government troops busy doing something besides staging coups.
Managed chaos? Like the Buenos Aires conference which
...emerged from [Clinton's] Summit of the Americas held
in Miami a year ago.
Right to privacy? But of course. From scheming in Miami to
"profits that can't be spent" coverup in Buenos Aires to "we
don't do that anymore" death squads in any of the 34.
"But I meant, for the people."
"You mean you have a complaint?"
