Why Are We Sorry?
On July 2, 2007, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, Ways and Means Committee Chairman Charles Rangel, and Ways and Means Trade Subcommittee Chairman Sander Levin issued a statement on Democrat trade policy rejecting a free trade agreement with our closest ally in Latin America, Colombia. According to them, it cannot be approved until “concrete evidence of sustained results on the ground in Colombia” regarding issues such as violence and corruption have been shown.
This is an apology to Colombians for the lies and incompetence of America’s Congressional leaders, as well as a resource for the truth on Colombia’s remarkable fight for normality.
Robert and I discussed Colombia and the FTA agreement in last Friday’s podcast.
