In order to isolate Colombia’s pro-American, democratically-elected government, Massachusetts Congressman James McGovern sent what commentators have likened to “love letters” to a bloodthirsty Colombian terrorist group, FARC, that smuggles drugs and espouses a Marxist ideology. “Mr. McGovern has been working with an American go-between, who has been offering the rebels help in undermining Colombia’s elected and popular government,” reports the Wall Street Journal.
McGovern is “a leading opponent of the free-trade deal” between the U.S. and Colombia that House leaders blocked earlier this year, even though it would create jobs in our export industries. Meanwhile, House leaders voted to pass a special tax break for an oil company controlled by Venezuela’s anti-American dictator, who helps fund the terrorist group FARC.
