Chavez & Betancourt

Ingrid Betancourt was the Colombian Green Party's Presidential candidate a dew years back, until she and her campaign manager, Clara Rojas, were kidnapped by the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, known by the Spanish acronym FARC. Betancourt had been campaigning against both government corruption and narco-traffickers.

Now President Uribe of Colombia is quoted in an article at Yahoo! is quoted saying that Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez may be able to broker their release.

Ingrid's children need their mother. I hope the FARC will do the right thing and release her, with or without President Chavez's involvement. She and Ms. Rojas have suffered too much for freedom and justice. Basta!
