Martin Corena:

Honolulu Star-Advertiser - - NATION & WORLD -

There have been a lot of state­ments … of sup­port, but in prac­tice, up to now, the sup­port of the United States hasn’t been vi­able and hasn’t be­come real.”

The Colom­bian rebel com­man­der is call­ing on Pres­i­dent Barack Obama to do more to sup­port peace and to free a guer­rilla leader jailed for more than a decade in the United States. Speak­ing from his jun­gle hide­out in south­ern Colom­bia, the Rev­o­lu­tion­ary Armed Forces of Colom­bia leader known by the alias Martin Corena said such a move would be the best way for the Obama ad­min­is­tra­tion to back with ac­tions its pub­lic sup­port for an ap­proach­ing deal to end decades of bloody fight­ing.
