Oliver North vs. Nicaragua: The Sequel

A capsule summary via Eli:
This just in:
Oliver North visits Nicaragua, warns against Ortega's possible return to power

Oliver North, the former White House aide at the heart of the Iran-Contra controversy, commented Monday on presidential elections that could return Daniel Ortega to office, warning Nicaraguans against returning to a past of war and foreign intervention.
And, I ask you, what says "no foreign intervention" like a convicted felon from an imperialist country who helped overthrow the government of your country once before, showing up and "warning" you about what you should and shouldn't do?
Nope. You really can't make this stuff up.

In our country, a convicted felon involved in, say, something like the Iran-Contra arms scandal gets rewarded with all sorts of goodies including the freedom to roam across the globe "warning" other sovereign nations prior to their elections.
