Obama And FARC

Sat, Mar 8, 2008

Since Barack Obama’s name turned up in that computer seized from FARC terrorists by Colombia, Investor’s Business Daily has a few questions for him: Obama And FARC.

Obama hasn’t said a whole lot about Colombia other than to criticize President Bush’s good relations with President Uribe. With this correspondence suggesting that FARC knows what he thinks, maybe the American voters have a right to know what he thinks, too. Five questions come to mind:

  • Is it true Obama would cut off Plan Colombia military aid to our ally, which would serve the terrorist group FARC’s interests?
  • Does Obama still oppose a free trade agreement for Colombia, even though that puts him on the same side as FARC in the debate?
  • Does Obama know or care that one of his staffers or supporters is claiming to disclose his positions in secret meetings with FARC terrorists outside government channels?
  • Can he tell us why his supporters would pass on such information to terrorists, and what he or she could gain from it?
  • Will Obama, as president, treat FARC as the serious terrorists they are, given that they still hold three Americans hostage?
