Nearly all reports on the Havana-held, Obama administration-sponsored FARC/Santos government “peace” negotiations describe the FARC as “rebels.”
The word rebel is defined as,
a person who refuses allegiance to, resists, or rises in arms against the government or ruler of his or her country.
It clearly falls short of the FARC’s vile and multiple atrocities.
FARC doctor arrested in Madrid for carrying out forced abortions. Pregnant guerrilla members were executed if they did not agree to undergo terminations (emphasis added)
Héctor Albeidis Arboleda Buitrago, known as El Médico (The doctor), was picked up on Sunday after Interpol issued an international warrant for his capture on charges of aggravated torture and carrying out abortions without consent.

Arboleda Buitrago is alleged to have performed up to 500 forced abortions on female FARC members over a 15-year period. Some of the women were forced to undergo the procedure during their eighth month of pregnancy.
. . .
Among the victims are more than 50 underage girls whom “The Doctor” forced to give up their unborn infants “during the seventh and eighth months of their pregnancies,” said the Spanish National Police in a statement on Sunday.
Many of the women had been raped by other FARC members and were threatened to be taken before a firing squad if they did not agree to the abortions.
The majority of the women were indigenous and underage.
The article’s sidebar reads,
Not all women who became pregnant while serving with the FARC consented to have abortions. According to Colombian prosecutors, who have based their investigation on sworn statements taken from former members, many women who refused to have their pregnancies terminated were murdered.
Arboleda Buitrago used their bodies for anatomical studies.
“We are far ahead in the investigation and hope these testimonies serve to corroborate all the charges,” said the chief investigator in the case.
Colombian prosecutors are also investigating whether the FARC high command collaborated in the forced abortions.
That’s the same high command asking to be named as unelected members of the Colombian congress.
