La Paz's best hotel, downing a few whiskies. Avengers! What avengers? Where are they coming from? The Eichmann case is unique, for his presence in Buenos Aires was an open secret that everyone in Argentina, whether Jew or Nazi, knew about for years. Indeed, he concealed himself so well that he gave interviews and listed his sons under their right name at the German Embassy. When the Bolivian Foreign Minister, Mario Gutiérrez, went to Israel in May 1972, no Israeli authority brought up the Barbie case. International reaction to the abduction of Eichmann so burned the Israelis that they could not or would not hunt for lesser game like Martin Bormann or Heinrich Müller, the head of the national Gestapo. Make no mistake. There is no cleaning fluid for cleansing the world of Nazi criminals. They may issue "contracts," as they say in the United States, for disposing of associates, rivals, partners, or a wife's lover. But no one has ever financed a contract to wipe out mass murderers.
