You know he could tell the world a lot about how much the US helped him during the 80's.

1. Don't assume he didn't...and don't expect to see it come to the light

Think of the ark of the covenant at the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark...

4. Why do you think he is to hang?

5. He tried.
All evidence suggesting US complicity was supressed. Tried by a (US) hand picked jury. Very tight US media control.

The whole world knows, except for many US citizens, who wer blitzed with the most impressive propaganda campaign since, well you know.
