It looks like the long
and winding road
of the John McAfee saga
is going to continue for at least a little longer. McAfee posted a detailed blog post
about how he was able to elude Belizean authorities and sneak out of the country
. From the article: "'It's visually interesting and it is mostly a happy story — in line with most Christmas stories,' he wrote.
The former software executive describes an operation that was heavy in advance planning and trickery. He says he planted a lookalike ('my double — a man I have known for over 30 years and who years ago legally changed his name to John McAfee') and had him picked up by authorities in the northern Belize-Mexico border, while he and a group of friends and reporters loaded up a truck and headed in the opposite direction, to a southern town called Punta Gorda. With the news that he'd been arrested broadcasting on a local news station, McAfee figured that checkpoint security would relax."
