Who to Believe?

From the New York Times:

"Ex-Leader of Liberia Cites C.I.A. in Jailbreak

....Part of the lore surrounding Mr. Taylor is that he broke out of jail in Plymouth, Mass., while awaiting extradition on charges of embezzling $900,000 in Liberia. He told his judges that he did not escape on his own; rather, he said, he was helped by the Central Intelligence Agency."

To quote the Great Criswell, "Can you prove it didn't happen?"

What a world, what a world. Charles Taylor versus the CIA. Which habitual, pathological liar are we supposed to believe here?
