Premature SWNID Superlative

The year is but half over, but we're confident that the following SWNID Superlative will remain superlative at year's end:

Best Use of a Che Guevara T-Shirt: The brilliant Colombian covert operation to free FARC hostages. Having infiltrated the highest levels of the FARC command structure to convince them that a third party was working on a negotiation for the hostages, the government's operatives wore the classic symbol of leftist revolution on their arrival to spirit the hostages away from their captors.

SWNID delights to think of the suspicions, recriminations, fear and dread that must now completely infect FARC. We hope that it reaches as far as their sinister patron, Hugo Chavez. Have a great weekend, silly Marxist totalitarian kleptocrats!

For those looking for an alternative to the cliched Che insignia, we recommend this.
