More on Colombian military’s daring hostage rescue last week against Communist Rebels

FARC’s ‘Human Rights’ Friends
As we learn more about the Colombian military’s daring hostage
rescue last week, one detail stands out: In tricking FARC rebels into
putting the hostages aboard a helicopter, undercover special forces
simply told the comandantes that the aircraft was being loaned to them
by a fictitious nongovernmental organization sympathetic to their cause
called the International Humanitarian Mission.

It may have taken years for army intelligence to infiltrate the
Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, and it may have been tough to
convincingly impersonate rebels. But what seems to have been a walk in
the park was getting the FARC to believe that an NGO was providing
resources to help it in the dirty work of ferrying captives to a new

I am reminded of President Álvaro Uribe’s 2003 statement that some
“human rights” organizations in his country were fronts for terrorists.
Connecticut Sen. Christopher Dodd got his back up over Mr. Uribe’s
statement, and piously lectured the Colombian president about “the
importance of democratic values.”

But as the helicopter story suggests, Mr. Uribe seems to have been
right. How else to explain the fact that the FARC swallowed the line
without batting an eye?

This warrants attention because it adds to the already robust
evidence that left-wing NGOs and other so-called human rights
defenders, including Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez and Colombian
Sen. Piedad Cordoba, are nothing more than propagandists for terrorists.

Last fall, Mr. Chávez and the FARC hatched an audacious plan whereby
the Venezuelan would take “proof of life” of Ms. Betancourt to French
President Nicolas Sarkozy in Paris, where the plight of Ms. Betancourt
was a cause célèbre. The rebels wrote that Mr. Chávez was sure French
pressure for negotiations would cause President Bush to “order Uribe to
allow the meeting” between Mr. Chávez and the rebels on Colombian soil,
something Mr. Uribe had refused to do. The rebels reported that Mr.
Chávez was “super-motivated,” because he viewed the rendezvous as a
public-relations coup that would give him and the FARC “continental and
world renown.”

That plan flopped, but Mr. Chavez had other cards up his sleeve. One
involved Ms. Cordoba, who is currently under investigation by the
Colombian attorney general for ties to the FARC. She figures
prominently in the captured rebel documents, and is notoriously close
to Mr. Chávez.

She met at the Venezuelan presidential palace with FARC leaders last
fall. From that meeting the rebels reported that “Piedad says that
Chávez has Uribe going crazy. He doesn’t know what to do. That Nancy
Pelosi helps and is ready to help in the swap [hostages in exchange for
captured guerrillas]. That she has designated [U.S. Congressman Jim]
McGovern for this.”

More on little miss Pelosi here--------->

Oh my what a busy little bee she has been, for the communists that is.... Just not on anything the American people really care about. Guess she has to help here true constituents, those old dregs of communism. No wonder the American public doesn't think much of the Congress that she's in charge of---->(Congress frets as its ratings plummet--->

That would also explain why she so badly wants to shut up the right wing talk radio shows by restraining their right to freedom of speech---->(Pelosi Supports Return of (mislabled) Fairness Doctrine---->

If the speaker of the House was working with Ms. Cordoba in this
scheme, her judgment was more than a little misguided.
The rebels write
that on a trip to Argentina Ms. Cordoba told them, “It doesn’t matter
to me the proposal that Sarkozy has made to free Ingrid. Above all, do
not liberate Ingrid.” In short, why give up such a useful pawn?

Ahh, wasn't it Zimmy who just yesterday was poo pooing the existance of the communist threat. Its all right zimmer, save your breath. We know they are there. No need to huff and puff, when you'll get your house blown down.
