Trying to make Sendero sound like a dying species

Peruvian Police Capture Last Shining Path Leader: "Cerron Cardosa was a member of Shining Path's central committee and attended the guerilla group's founding meeting in 1989, the news agency said." Bloomberg / AFP There is no founding date of 1989. It's much more likely to have been the graduation of the first class of SL cadres enlisted in the "popular war" in 1978. That was the generation of SL leaders who really held a lot of sway in the party, even more than the leaders from the decade before. Also see the BBC's Peru holds senior rebel leader, which provides better details about the arrest and its significance.
