3. "He will never be forgiven"

5. Manley committed the cardinal sin of supporting Cuba.

9. The CIA has a long history of involvment in the drug trade.

The San Jose Mercury News exposed a part of it, and suffered for exercising their freedom of the press.

12. Bob's response

That book had several problems starting with the author's ignorance on Jamaican history or the numbers of guns in Jamaica at that time.
