Berni: Massa going to the US a 'traitor'
National Security Secretary Sergio Berni has renewed his criticism of a US-led report that warns about a “dramatic” increase of drug consumption in Argentina, questioning also opposition leader Sergio Massa for his alignment with Washington.
“There are presidential candidates that go to the United States as traitors,” the Kirchnerite said in statements to a radio show today when queried about the document released this week by the Drug Enforcement Administration of the US.
According to the official, “millions and millions of Americans consume drugs.” “If is there a country with severe drug problems that is the US.”
“The report lacks official figures, it seems a mere statement (based on) appreciations because all reports are bilateral and require the consent of the two countries (involved),” Berni affirmed.
The Security Secretary had made similar statements on Monday with Cabinet Chief Jorge Capitanich today defending his position. “Berni’s statements were clear, eloquent and convincing,” Capitanich said earlier this morning, recommending the White House to "better" watch closely into the US domestic scenario, rather than seeking to “teach lessons” to other countries.
