Sean Penn Can Help You Escape Bolivia

Currently stuck in Bolivia? Sean Penn can help you out with that:

It's a smoke and mirrors saga fit for Hollywood, complete with a major movie star, murky reports of a kidnapping and an American fugitive sneaking across the border of a nation unfriendly to the U.S.

Little is being revealed about Jacob Ostreicher's flight from house arrest in Bolivia and into the care of actor-activist Sean Penn.

The New York businessman arrived in the U.S. on Monday after an ordeal that began more than two years ago when he was jailed as part of a money laundering probe into a rice-growing venture.

No one is saying how the 54-year-old fled, or who helped him.

"You'll never find out," Peter Hakim, president emeritus of the Inter-American Dialogue in Washington, said Tuesday. If the U.S. was involved, "it was done through layers and layers of cover," he said.


Not OT, because Bolivia, obviously.

Between profitgoblue's legal representation and Sean Penn's international relations skills, I think we found our MGoBolivian version of Harriet Tubman.   Dudes can get anyone out of Bolivian shackles.
