Editor’s Note-Government Corruption

By: Amelia Gutierrez

Many countries end up with corrupt political leaders, who eventually influence others and help create a corrupt government. From prime ministers, such as Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert who ordered illegal actions to money laundering Hugo Chavez, Venezuelan President.

There has even been federal government corruption in the United States and it unfortunately exists today. For example, Operation Northwoods, which was a plan to earn support from other countries for a war against Cub. Another example of U.S. corruption would be the Iran-Contra affair in 1987 that had the U.S. government selling arms to the Iranian government.

Corruption in a country could be as small as journalists being paid by anti-Castro organizations in Miami, Florida to undermine Fidel Castro.
