The New American: “The Obama administration has simple demands for the long-suffering people of Colombia and their legitimate government: Do not just negotiate with murderous Marxist narco-terrorists, but surrender to them. Give them full amnesty for everything from mass murder and kidnapping to torture and treason, and then allow them into positions of power.
That was the message delivered most recently by Obama’s Secretary of State John Kerry in Havana meetings last month amid “peace” talks between Colombian authorities and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia-People’s Army, or “FARC,” as the savage terror group (shown) is more commonly known.
With support from Obama, the “negotiations” have been ongoing for about five years. Basically, the FARC-Obama position is that the Marxist-Leninist terrorists responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths will keep their weapons and blood money, will avoid any jail time for decades of atrocities and massive slaughters, will not have to compensate victims or victims’ families, and will be allowed to enter government positions despite their barbaric crimes.
The radical scheme also throws the Colombian military under the bus, according to critics, and puts it on par with the terrorists.”
Opinion: I should correct a statement I made yesterday: “He has lied about everything” in relation to Obama’s admission that he lied about same-sex marriage from the beginning. The president has been true to form when it comes to legitimizing terror groups (Muslim Brotherhood), totalitarian governments (Iran, Cuba, Ethiopia, Burma), or criminal enterprises (Palestinian Authority, FARC).
During a CNN/YouTube debate, on July 24th, 2007, then-Senator Obama was asked, “Would you be willing to meet separately, without precondition, during the first year of your administration, in Washington or anywhere else, with the leaders of Iran, Syria, Venezuela, Cuba and North Korea, in order to bridge the gap that divides our countries?” Obama responded, “I would”.
I stand corrected, I think.
