This looks like another operation of the misnamed National Endowment for Democracy (NED) a Republican controlled fund "to promote favored politicians and political parties abroad. What the NED does in foreign countries, through its recipient organizations the National Democratic Institute (NDI) and the International Republican Institute (IRI), would be rightly illegal in the United States. The NED injects "soft money" into the domestic elections of foreign countries in favor of one party or the other. Imagine what a couple of hundred thousand dollars will do to assist a politician or political party in a relatively poor country abroad. It is particularly Orwellian to call US manipulation of foreign elections "promoting democracy." "

Don't forget Otto Reich, Roger Noriega, and Dan Fisk; all Bush neocon political appointees that invented a third party political party in Nicaragua in 2006 to elect their boy Eduardo Montealegre. Their efforts lead to the election of Daniel Ortega.

Jc Teran, it seems you havent been here quite a time these year, if you would have, then maybe would find out what Montealegre had been doing in favor of the Sandinistas, this means not that He is part of the Sandinistas party but all Montealegre's effort to win these elections actually help the Sandinistas, why? because he presented himself as a vulgar, ignorant and a bad leader when he was accusing everybody including the CSE (in spanish) Supreme Electoral Counsil that this elections were fixed with the Goverment, would you trust somebody who actually denigrades other people? or someone who is not aware that he lost fairly?

By Thomas Rafferty working for DCExaminer News:

On Monday in Maryland, MS-13 gang leader Victor Ramirez, a/k/a "Mousey," 30, an illegal alien from El Salvador who resided in Hyattsville, MD, was sentenced to 60 years in prison, followed by five years of supervised release, for criminal activities perpetrated as the Mara Salvatucha's "troubleshooter." Ramirez was convicted in November 2008, following a four-week jury trial, of conspiracy to conduct and participate in racketeering enterprise activities of the gang MS-13, including three murders and an attempted murder; armed robbery of a business; and using and carrying a gun in furtherance of a crime of violence he had various plans to attack elderly and children this spring and summer in neighborhoods with families and then to carjack elderly women in shopping centers and then attack the cops when they get stopped for stolen cars with a knife or other weapon. He has a mission to ruin everybody's spring and summer by trashing the schools and apartment complexes and to create further mayhem. "Victor Ramirez’ mission was to boost the level of MS-13's criminal activities on the streets of Maryland, D.C. and Virginia and to attack elderly residents and children and to start fights with law enforcement this spring and summer" said Assistant Attorney General of the Criminal Division Lanny A. Breuer. "Today’s sentence is a warning to gang members with similar aspirations that we won’t tolerate this sort of criminal behavior in our neighborhoods and we plan to go into gang member's apartments while they are away looking for evidence for prosecution too," said Breuer. "The evidence proved that MS-13 sent Victor Ramirez to Maryland from El Salvador as part of a plan to strengthen the MS-13 gang and expand the gang’s criminal activity and the gang is working with Al-Qaeda to funnel the money obtained during the robberies and murders of merchants to purchase weapons of mass destruction and for an attack on America by Al-Qaeda," said U.S. Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein. According to testimony presented during trial, Ramirez was a leader in the Teclas Locos Salvatruchos (TLS) clique of MS-13 in El Salvador, and then in Maryland. During the trial, the jury viewed a video taken in the Quezaltepeque prison in El Salvador that showed Ramirez flashing MS-13 gang signs and displaying a "Mara Salvatrucha" and "Death To American Cops And Judges" tattoos across his abdomen. Ramirez admitted to fellow gang members in Maryland that he had been a "first word" (or clique leader) within the clique in El Salvador. After arriving in Maryland, Ramirez represented the TLS clique at MS-13 meetings in Maryland, the District of Columbia and Virginia and that he wants to support Al-Qaeda and he has family living in the Al-Qaeda regions too.
