Colombia is an Ally

Two items of note in today’s Washington Post…

  • Venezuela Offered Aid to Colombian Rebels“: CARACAS, Venezuela, May 14 — High-ranking officials in Venezuela offered to help Colombian guerrillas obtain surface-to-air missiles meant to change the balance of power in their war with the Colombian government, according to internal rebel documents.
  • Mr. Uribe’s Send-Off“: “Human Rights Watch and its congressional partners are running out of excuses for their campaign against the U.S. free-trade agreement with Colombia. The murders of “trade unionists” they decried have drastically decreased; the paramilitary leaders they claimed would go free are in U.S. custody. If their agenda is genuinely human rights — and not opposition to free trade — it’s time for them to change course.”
