Retro Garlic ... A Sidewalk Full of Banana Peels

"Yes, we have no terrorist charges ...We have-a no terrorist charges today"
No doubt, they're singing that tune around Chiquita Brands International headquarters today.

Especially loud, after this;

Ex-Chiquita Execs Won't Face Bribe Charges

"The United States gave serious consideration to bringing additional charges in this matter," prosecutors wrote in a memo filed in court yesterday. "In the exercise of prosecutorial discretion, the United States has decided not do so."

Could it be that being a fat cat donor to the Republican Party have anything to do with it? Especially circumspect, considering the politicalization of the Injustice Department, as run by the former Crony General Alberto "Fredo" Gonzales.

What would have been the disposition had the funding by Chiquita gone to, say, al Qaeda? Or Hezzbollah?

Looks like a sidewalk full of banana peels for Congress to wade into this one.
