Too big to prosecute?

22 April 2009

We are shocked at what we have heard, and have no doubts on the evidence given that the Colombian government of Alvaro Uribe, and the security forces, are complicit in human rights crimes. We are convinced also that the murderous activities of the paramilitary forces are condoned and actively supported by the government and army. These crimes are aggravated by the impunity enjoyed by the perpetrators and the failure of the legal system to prosecute the criminals and those who issue the orders.

It’s no wonder that the Bush Administration was so hep on Colombia. Having just celebrated the life of a genuine hero who was willing to put torturers and human rights abusers on trial, and in an era when even PERU is willing to put corrupt presidents in the dock, what is the problem with the Obama Administration?
