Grewal & Liberia

Lenny pointed out this article in his comments on an earlier thread.
Picking myself up off the floor and scribbling notes furiously, I asked if Grewal meant the Sam Doe. Yes, yes, Grewal insisted, the Liberian head of state. He had advised Doe on a “green revolution” for Liberia.

Flabbergasted, I asked if he could prove this. Grewal cheerfully offered to send me his resume and with a decent show of hesitation (perhaps a millisecond), I accepted. The newsroom fax machine spat it out moments later. There in black and white, under the heading “Community Involvement,” Grewal wrote: "Recommended to and then helped the president of Liberia (Doe) to launch Green Revolution in the country."

I gave Eeyore a heads up on this. When he has time, he'll be following up on it.
