It is foolish to question Bibi about Guyana's history during those troubled times of PNC brutality. She is connected to people with first hand information. If she says 10, it is 10 regardless of what the record says.
so, if I say that 12+ family members died in the June 1964 bombing of Arthur Abraham's home instead of 8 . . . is that arite?
She has demonstrated on many occasions that she was close to many of the people at the time who have personal knowledge and experiences. You haven't done so. Therefore you wouldn't be afforded the same level of confidence.
trafficking in malicious gossip does not give you "personal knowledge"
i can say without fear of contradiction that my family was closer to events, and i know more important people of that period than any name-dropping gossip monger
in the important areas, she hasn't "demonstrated" much more than the ability to lie BIG and run away
your "confidence" doesn't mean shyte
