    This is what is called total Dadagri.

    What will be worse if the US President flying to a South American country is forced to land in a South American country and detained.

    The bottom line is that Heads of State should not be treated shabbily.

    Evo Morales is a leftist politician and a hardcore critic of US foreign policy in South America.

    Right now Portugal is in a huge economic crisis so they are looking for a bailout package from the US and EU.

    What hysteria. No aircraft was forced down. Airspace transit permission was delayed. The Bolivians can't even decide if their aircraft was searched or not. The outcry is a chorus of self-pity from self-important leftist tinpot dictators. If they are sincere, let them refuse US aid going forward.

    Here's another opinion, from the US left.

    Obama Lets Loose on Evo Morales | Mother Jones

    There is still too much speculation in this story.
