The podcast on Colombia will be on tomorrow at 2PM Eastern on NowLive.
You can listen to today’s podcast, with special guest Rep. Marsha Blackburn here.
Via Noticias24, Colombia’s RCN TV has released a documentary showing all the video from the hostage rescue that liberated Marc Gonsalves, Keith Stansell, Thomas Howes, Ingrid Betancourt, and eleven Colombian army officers and NCOs. A month ago I posted my translation of the hostage rescue video that was first released.
Here is the start of the documentary (in Spanish):
As you can see in the video, the rescue operation kept in mind all details, from the symbols on the helicopter matching those of NGO helicopters used on humanitarian missions to the insignia of the fake NGO, which also had a website.
Noticias 24 has all three parts of the TV program. In spite of the awful background music, it’s fascinating.
I’ll be talking about Colombia in this morning’s 15 Minutes on Latin America at Blog Talk Radio. Chat’s open by 10:15AM, and the call-in number is 646 652-2639. Join me!
