The answer’s here. And boy, the words “read the whole thing” were invented for that link.
Great fun, isn’t it? It’s nice to know Chávez wasn’t any more trustworthy or competent in helping out FARC than he’s been at just governing in general.
I’d quibble with the characterization of López Sisco as an opposition member, though: that sounds much more like a bit of intramural Disip grudge-settling by proxy.
And the bit about FARC training pro-Chávez groups in 23 de Enero might have been more surprising if it hadn’t been for this shit. I mean let’s get real for a moment, they haven’t precisely been subtle about it.
There’s a ton of material here. If you’d like, you can read the whole whole thing (but you have to pay for it.)
