Unbelieveable that there are people who think this rescue is a sham I think they are the same people that think the Nazi attempt at exterminating the Jews didn't happen - there is always a spin on these things so that some newspapers can sell more papers so that otherwise insignificant people can gain attention etc. etc. etc. The fact is that this courageous attempt was successful and did happen and that the FARC are criminals with no purpose other than to gain funds at the expense of the Colombian people through many kidnappings and drug trafficing - it is rather common knowledge in South America that the president of Venezula has strong connections with the FARC and supplies, supplies, guns and funds for their opperation also, that likely Pres. Chavis controls directly or indirectly many of the FARC's activities.
Face it the Colombian Military, Fed Police and President Uribe deserve a lot of credit for their success in handling this Terrorist Group the FARC and with God's held they will eliminate them from an otherwise Beautiful Country whose people are also, for the most part, peace loving amiable people that the world needs to get to know better.
