Skip to comments.Obama mentioned among documents recovered by Colombia from slain FARC leader Raúl Reyes
Posted on 03/04/2008 11:11:28 AM PST by ElCapitanAmericaLives
Article has the last "letter" from Reyes to the FARC. Below is the relevant section talking about Obama followed by my translation;
"6. Los gringos pedirán cita con el ministro para solicitarle nos comunicara su interés en conversar estos temas. Dicen que el nuevo presidente de su país será Obama y que ellos están interesados en sus compatriotas. Obama no apoyara Plan Colombia ni firma de TLC. Aquí respondimos que nos interesan las relaciones con todos los gobiernos en igualdad de condiciones y que en el caso de Estados Unidos se requiere in pronunciamiento público expresando su interés en conversar con las Farc dada su eterna guerra con nosotros.
Es todo, Abrazos, Raúl."
6. The gringos will ask for an appointment with the minister to solicit him to communicate to us his interest in discussing these topics. They say that the new president of their country will be Obama and that they are interested in your compatriots. Obama will not support "Plan Colombia" nor will he sign the TLC (Colombian Free Trade agreement). Here we responded that we are interested in relations with all governments in equality of conditions and that in the case of the US it is required a public pronouncement expressing their interest in talking with the FARC given their eternal war against us.
glimpses behind the curtain of an Obama presidency...*shivers*

So Obama has the FARC narcoterrorist endorsement now? Has al Qadea weighed in yet?
Cindy Sheehan’s boyfriend Hugo Chavez will be making a deadly mistake if he supports FARC militarily.
Well, isn’t that special?
Who are the “gringos?” Obama staffers?
Good Luck with that... LOL.
Clinton and Obama will both be toast come the General Election. Obama is so far left and he’s pulled Clinton so far left that their lunatic views are now fully established. I also don’t think that the American people will vote for anyone who didn’t, or doesn’t support the war in Iraq.
That section has not context to it. Can someone translate the whole thing?
Can a pronouncement from a cave be far behind?
It’s nice to have friends in high places.
Chavez already gave them $300 million. That will buy a lot of destabilization in Columbia.
No, but Raul Castro endorsed him yesterday!
Any mention of Clinton’s 2000 FARC pardons?
Utterly meaningless without identification of the “gringos” making the statements.
who are these gringos? oh never mind... dims i c..
All very interesting, but it’s not much of a reflection on Obama. This is some (now dead) guy planning ahead, not anything that Obama has done.
Bill doubled his coka order if FARC would put Obama’s name somewhere in their documents!
