United States Ambassador, D. Brent Hardt has chided the Government of Guyana over what he calls the “censorship of the media”.

Of special interest is the perpetrator, the late Guyana Defense Force Sergeant Gregory Smith who supplied the bomb-rigged walkie-talkie that killed Dr. Rodney. Who was behind Smith’s actions? Who helped him to escape to French Guiana?
