As a former Peace Corps volunteer and American citizen, this case really pisses me off. The sad fact is that no matter how obviously innocent a person may be, if an American citizen gets convicted of a crime in a foreign country, our embassy there, not to mention our country, will not do anything to help. The embassy exists to serve the needs of the the big corporations, and pity the poor soul that becomes the object of some third world witch hunt. The fact that this gentleman served his country for at least two years for little or no pay and little gratitude seems to mean nothing to our political leaders.
He's guilty because he looks guilty and nothing more. In some places, it's a crime to be successful, I think that was his mistake.
