Chiquita paid rebel groups

My first question about the Enquirer's story is simply: Did Uncle Carl know? From the article:
Chiquita said the Justice Department was contacted after the company discovered the groups were listed on the State Department's Foreign Terrorist Organizations list. The list names 37 organizations, including al-Qaida as well as three groups in Colombia.

A Justice Department spokesman declined Monday to comment on the investigation. U.S. law makes it a crime to knowingly provide resources to terrorist organizations.
If Carl Linder was still part of the company when this happened, I hope he is being including in the investigation.

More from CNN.
