Don't know anything about Fleischman except that he is a producer for
imperialist television station. When these sorts of people can outflank the
Nation Magazine from the left, something is wrong. Carrigan is the author
of a book on the misadventure of the M19 movement, when it took over the
Palace of Justice in the 1980s, and was destroyed in a brutal raid by the
Colombian army. She has been writing some truly wretched stuff on Colombia
for the Nation for a while now.
