Charles Taylor and the CIA ...

Will Charles Taylor sing? - from Salon

Now that he is back in custody and facing charges, it does raise some interesting questions. I think the most interesting information will be about what sort of ties he had to al-Queda while he was on the CIA payroll for information on Libya. There's no question that in the world of international espionage, you sometimes have to get dirty. But Taylor represents the worst of the worst, and there's never really been any question of that. It'll be nice to see him stand trial for the abuses of his reign, but it'll be even more interesting, I think, to get details of some of the other intrigue that went on around him.
