The atmosphere on this list has been poisonous lately, and I apologise
for making it worse by making accusations. I acted without any authority
>from my party.

I have a great respect for Adolfo personally, and I feel that he has
made good contributions to this list. When he was attacked, I jumped in
to defend him.

I was wrong to accuse John Plant of acting, unknowingly, for the
Fujimori fascists. I confused the intervention of PO with that of
Quispe. I do not know enough about PO to say that. I do disagree with
some of the things they say, especially from Mr Ponce, but that does not
mean that they are all direct agents.

Some people who think that they know it all will see this statement as a
weakness. They would be wrong to do so. I want to really understand the
whole situation before I speak. Others on this list should do the same.
