New York Times continues spurious campaign to allege sinister Venezuelan cooperation with Colombia's FARC rebels
Totally ignoring the Venezuelan government's long-standing efforts to act as a mediator between the rightwing fascist Colombian government and FARC rebels, the New York Times continues its sortid attempt to allege sinister cross-border motives: "Files provided by Colombian officials from computers they say were captured in a cross-border raid in Ecuador this month appear to tie Venezuela’s government to efforts to secure arms for Colombia’s largest insurgency. Officials taking part in Colombia’s investigation of the computers provided The New York Times with copies of more than 20 files, some of which also showed contributions from the rebels to the 2006 campaign of Ecuador’s leftist president, Rafael Correa. If verified, the computer files would offer rare insight into the cloak-and-dagger nature of Latin America’s longest-running guerrilla conflict, including what appeared to be the killing of a Colombian government spy who had microchips implanted in her body, a crime apparently carried out by the guerrillas in their jungle redoubt."
