I have to congratulate John for making it safely out of Belize and into Guatemala. Kudos for meeting up with a big gun like Telésforo Guerra … this guy is the real deal. He is the Lawyer who represented former Guatemalan President Alfonso Portillo in a huge embezzlement case where Portillo and two of his aides were charged with corruption and the embezzlement of $15 million in government funds. … and go figure, he’s the former Attorney General of Guatemala that just happens to be Sam’s uncle … giddy up Cowboys!
I was watching the latest broadcast from Martin Savidge on CNN. He was crying about how his laptop and iPhone were stolen, when really I think he was upset that he never broke the story of John’s capture. I wonder if he was leaking GPS data like VICE did. Anyhow CNN is reporting that John’s lawyer is planning to file a formal request for asylum with Guatemalan officials Wednesday.
Well, unless they sent Bart and Homer Simpson along to manage the security of John’s whereabouts, I can’t help but wonder, did VICE Magazine deliberately release the EXIF data hoping to catch the big story of John’s capture? One thing that jumped out from their story yesterday with the EXIF data on the photo was when they wrote “Rocco and Robert will continue to follow John until the conclusion of his journey” – Was the conclusion supposed to be John’s capture and the EXIF data leak part of the sequence? We are still waiting to hear officially what John’s interview with VICE editor-in-chief Rocco Castoro is going to be like. These guys from VICE.com are supposed to be a big league website, however, I have to question their choice of heading to break the story, We are with John McAfee right now, Suckers … it sounds a bit immature, and their earlier article on John is also not very flattering. Either they tried to get John caught by purposely releasing the EXIF or they were extremely lucky not to have been killed in Syria while leaving a trail of data across an active war zone. For now it seems they get a pass on this blunder (what choice did John have after the leak), but seriously … how does a magazine like VICE upload that data?
Yesterday John was apologizing on his blog to VICE Magazine for manipulating the EXIF data on the story photo. I am not really sure what is going on here because they have REMOVED the whole apology post and hundreds of comments that were posted to his blog. He has now admitted the real EXIF data was released by an unseasoned technician at VICE. Today he is now posting on his blog that he and Sam are indeed in Guatemala. I am sure John has since left the area of Rio Dulce revealed on the EXIF data. However, he should also ditch these dudes from VICE … they are going to get him killed … I hope John sees what I see in this VICE Job … forgetting to remove that EXIF data is not likely, because even Homer Simpson would have removed it.
Monday Dec. 3 – The twin McAfee haters Gizmodo.com and Wired.com are now reporting that VICE left data on the photo and are giddy like school kids, hoping John gets caught. … going with my hunch again … I’m not buying into any of this shit.
Today Tues. Dec. 4, 2012 – VICE Magazine is reporting that John has hired top notch Guatemalan lawyer and former Attorney General Telésforo Guerra. This man has an excellent reputation and just happens to be Sam’s uncle. With that being said … I still think it is a good idea for John to go even deeper into hiding and lose all these media hounds that are only looking to break the story of John McAfee’s capture.
Well after a tough 3 weeks, things are looking better for John McAfee … below is a screen shot from his latest post The New Fight. … good luck John and get some rest.
