Lori Berenson, the New Yorker whose conviction on charges of collaborating with Marxist rebels, has been in prison in Peru for being a naive young person who trusted the wrong people. Why would our government send Peace Corps volunteers to such a country?

Lori Berenson is a terrorist who knew exactly who she was helping, and has gotten off far easier than she deserves. Peru went through over ten long years of destruction and the deaths of over 30,000 people by the hands of "people" like Lori. Peace Corps volunteers can help repair the damage caused by these terrorists.
