KTVB-TV has disappeared one of the videos I embedded in the blog I’m finishing right now. While looking for it, I found this BONUS VIDEO: a February 9 interview with Charisa Coulter’s father, Mel and Eric Thompson, husband of detainee Carla Thompson. A serious luv fest for Haiti.
Thompson assures us that he loves Haiti–or rather “those people”– and prays for the government every day to do the right thing by his wife who only wanted to “help children.” Nothing about praying for the families his wife helped break up or mention of the illegal activities she engaged in to do it.
Coulter opines that it’s “unethical” to separate Silsby/Coulter from the other eight since the lawyers were hired to represent all of them. They went in “ten as one” and they need to come out as one. Gee, funny how Jim Allen claims those lawyers never represented him. And he got out “as one” while the rest of them were left to stew.
Reporter Ysabel Bilbao closed her report saying the men believe that “the country is better because of the group.”
I’ve played the tape several times and don’t hear them say that, but it sounds like something they’d say. Or maybe Bilbao was getting her own snark in. If anyone wonders how the Haiti earthquake could have been made any worse than it was, the answer isn’t far way.
