Captured FARC Documents Link Democrats to Terror Group
It’s a bit odd that this is not getting more attention.
In this photo released by Colombia’s Presidency police chief Gen. Oscar Naranjo shows documents recovered from the computer of the senior commander of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, FARC, killed in Ecuador during a press conference at the presidential palace in Bogota, Monday, March 3, 2008. According to Naranjo some files recovered from a laptop owned by the rebel leader known as Raul Reyes, who was killed Saturday in an operation by Colombian security forces just over the border in Ecuador, reveal that the guerillas sent money to Hugo Chavez when he was a jailed coup leader before being elected Venezuela’s president and that Chavez had recently paid US$ 300 million to the FARC.

What Colombian investigators found on the FARC terror leader’s computer:
— FARC connections with Ecuadorean president Rafael Correa
— Records of $300 million offerings from Hugo Chavez
— Thank you notes from Hugo Chavez dating back to 1992
— Uranium purchasing records
— Admit to killing the sister of former President Cesar Gaviria
— Admit to planting a 2003 car bomb killing 36 at a Bogota upper crust club
— Directions on how to make a Dirty Bomb
— Letter to Libya’s Moammar Gadhafi asking for cash to buy surface-to-air missiles
— Meetings with “gringos” about Barack Obama
— Information on Russian illegal arms dealer Viktor Bout who was later captured
— FARC funding Correa’s campaign
— Cuban links to FARC
Captured FARC terrorist documents link US democrats to the Colombian terrorist group. 16 documents were posted this weekend in the Spanich Semana magazine. One of the documents mentions that US Democrats were trying to organize meetings with the FARC.
The AP reported:
New docs detail Colombian rebel ties
The 16 documents were published Sunday by the news magazine Semana. They also detail previously unknown relationships held or sought by Latin America’s oldest and most potent rebel force, the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC.
Another discusses an apparent effort by U.S. Democrats to have celebrated novelist Gabriel Garcia Marquez mediate talks with the insurgents — possibly with former President Clinton’s involvement.
There is no evidence the FARC ever obtained surface-to-air missiles, however. Attempts to reach Clinton and Garcia Marquez were unsuccessful.
