We Must Ask You, Please, To Come Quietly, For this Is the Cadogan Hotel...

Viktor Bout arrested in Thai hotel room on charges of arming FARC.

And I didn't even know he *was* doing. More, as they say, as we get it.

Update: Here's the pic - it's obviously him.

I do hope for a good outcome but bit skeptic recalling for example the case of Odessa arms dealer and mobster Leonid Minin who was arrested in Milan some years ago. He also was a close friend of Charles Taylor and proven to run arms in several UN reports but was nevertheless acquitted of all charges. Also there is the case of Charles Taylor in The Hague where it has proven difficult to present solid evidence as opposed to claims made on the internet.

What a crappy place to "end" a career. Did a Katoey squeal?
