The Washington Post puts on the front page today a story and photos about Colombia Independence Day, which was marked by huge rallies calling on the FARC terrorists to free their hostages and bring the guerilla war to a close.
Meanwhile, here in the United States, organized labor continues to demand obedience and opposition from members of Congress to the U.S.-Colombia Free Trade Agreement. Unions to Congress: You must repudiate all these Colombians crying for freedom.
Why? Because we say so.
