Carlos Sabino writes (emphasis added),
Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos met with Barack Obama, who has pledged some US$450 million in financial assistance to ensure the deal’s success. Obama claimed this aid package was a means to help a friendly and allied nation, not a way to interfere or intervene in Colombia’s internal affairs.
But the worrying part is that Obama and Santos claimed the deal also sought to seek “full justice,” which means punishment for those Colombian army officers who may have committed crimes against humanity.
The US government keeps pressuring Colombia, Guatemala, and other Latin American countries to harshly punish those military officers who battled the insurgent groups. But it fails to mention the acts committed by the guerrilla members who followed no rules, who rebelled against legitimate governments, who kidnapped and killed civilians, and who were responsible for terrorist attacks.
If any of my readers can provide links in English or in Spanish to the full text of the agreement to be finalized, I will be much obliged.
