Colombia Sends 13 paramilitary Leaders to US

This underlines the point made in the previous post. Organised crime, in this case narcotraffickers and narcoterrorists can substitute themselves for the security forces in insurgencies and Military leaders can convince themselves they are "winning" the war as a result.
The final line of this Washington Post piece is a reminder that there are different agendas for the US and for Colombians:
"What we the victims want to know is the truth: who financed them, who directed them, who ordered them."
