CIA helped Colombia hunt and kill FARC leaders

Published: 12.22.13, 20:11 / Israel News

Colombia's battle against leftist FARC guerrillas has been secretly aided by a US intelligence program that helped government forces hunt down and assassinate rebel leaders, the Washington Post reported Sunday.


The secret CIA program (separate from the $9 billion US aid package dubbed Plan Colombia, which launched in 2000) was initially authorized by president George W. Bush around the same time. President Barack Obama has continued the assistance, the Post reported, citing its interviews with more than 30 current and former officials from both the United States and Colombia. (AFP)
