3/6/20 Dave DeCamp on the Vindication of Evo Morales

Dave DeCamp discusses a brand new MIT study into the Bolivian presidential election of November 2019 that resulted in the ouster of Evo Morales over claims of election fraud. The new study finds no such evidence, claiming that all the supposed red flags were perfectly consistent with what should be expected from the country’s elections. It’s true that Morales was defying the term limits outlined in the Bolivian constitution, but a court had ruled before the election that his bid was legitimate, and the MIT study purports to show that he won a majority in a fair democratic election. Of course this isn’t good enough for the U.S. government, who will use the thinnest pretext to support regime change in a country that won’t go along with its agenda. Morales is currently in exile in Argentina, and it isn’t clear if he will ever be able to return to Bolivia. Scott and DeCamp also talk briefly about the latest in the OPCW Douma cover-up saga.
