In a country demo graphically dominated by traditionally marginalized indigenous peoples (55 percent Quechua or Aymara, 30 percent mestizo, and 15 percent white), where almost two-thirds ofthe population live in poverty, and which historically has had its natural resources plundered by a tiny, self-absorbed elite, Sanchez de Lozada was grossly negligent in failing to peacefully sell his economic plans to the public. Unless Sanchez de Lozada, Berzain, and U.S. Department of State can provide Bolivia's civil society and the international community with convincing evidence of the inadequacy and arbitrariness of that country's courts, and the sound standards used by Washington to determine the quality of other countries' judicial performance, these former high Bolivian officials should be extradited.
