This is what the righteous will object to-the plain simple truth.

Covert CIA program helped Colombia kill rebel leaders | World news | theguardian.com

A covert CIA program has helped Colombia's government kill at least two dozen leaders of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, the rebel insurgency also known as Farc, The Washington Post reported Saturday.

The National Security Agency has also provided "substantial eavesdropping help" to the Colombian government, according to the Post. And the US provided Colombia with GPS equipment that can be used to transform regular munitions into "smart bombs" that can accurately home in on specific targets, even if they are located in dense jungles.

In March 2008, Colombian forces killed a top Farc commander, Raul Reyes, in one of several jungle camps the rebels operated in Ecuador, just across the border. The Post report Saturday said Colombia used US-made smart bombs in the operation.

The report is based on interviews with more than 30 former and current US and Colombian officials, who the Post said spoke on condition of anonymity because the program is classified and ongoing.

The CIA would not comment on the Post report. Without going into detail, Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos told the Post that the CIA has been "of help," providing Colombian forces with "better training and knowledge."

The multibillion-dollar program was funded secretly and separately from $9bn in aid that the US has openly provided to Colombia, mostly in military assistance. It was authorized by President George W Bush and has continued under President Barack Obama, the newspaper reported.

Colombia's government and Farc have been engaged in peace talks in Havana since late 2012, but there has been no ceasefire between the two sides. Earlier this month Santos blamed the rebels for an attack on a police post that killed nine people, including civilians, military and a police officer.

The Farc rebels took up arms in 1964. The US-backed military buildup has reduced Farc's ranks to about 9,000 fighters and killed several top commanders, though the rebels insist they are still a potent force.

You do not realize that a CIA sponsored Governments is in the habit of disappearing people who resist the corrupt Governmentand here you are cheering them on so you are either very ill informed or you fully support repressive Governments and at the moment (by your tone) that it is the latter and not the former.Countries / Graduates (since 1946)

When they return to their home countries, graduates of the SOA hold a rather unique and peculiar view of their countrymen. They look upon priests, social workers, journalists, and liberal intellectuals, not as assets to their societies, but as dangerous subversives, working to undermine the system that keeps these soldiers, army officers, and their sponsors in power.

Fixed that for you-you can go to bed now.

And now it has been "unfixed". Don't change other people's posts. Using "FIFY" is not permissible here.

Let's see if the mods like you attributing that post as being something that I posted or you attributing it to me. Would it bother me to see you booted, no one bit. Nighty, nite.

What shocks me is that people are only now advised of it. America has been
supplying Columbia for years and they have been involved in all kinds of nasty
interference for nearly a century. And yes those in religion and social progress
are activists against exploitation.

Free speech does not guarantee you venues or audiences.


Censorship happens everywhere, all the time, especially places that explicitly tell you when you sign up, that they will be censoring you.


Terms of use, read them. If you don't agree with them, don't post there. Plain and simple.


You are not guaranteed a venue for any speech.

Billy told MHz he'd 'fixed it for you' on a post. Mods then went behind, undid it, and left a green reprimand in bill's post, about not saying 'fixed it for you' and modifying people's quotes.

I may revisit in the morning. With coffee.

Can anybody explain why you can gain 5 pounds from eating a 2 pound box of chocolates? One of life's great mysteries, I guess.

I have a weakness for fast food and junk food, so we are in the same boat, which is having difficulty staying afloat.

It does suck that 2 pounds of chocolate can have 17,500 calories

The problem is, most of that food is addictive so once we get out of the clean eating mode...screwed.
