Gateway Pundit gives us this:
New information reveals that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was indirectly sending messages to the FARC. The Marxist Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) is designated as a terrorist group by the US government. Speaker Pelosi was doing this while at the same time she refused to bring a free trade agreement with Colombia up for a vote in the US House. In fact, Pelosi took extraordinary steps to block this trade agreement with Americas closest ally in South America.
Colombian Sen. Piedad Cordoba (left) is currently under investigation by the Colombian attorney general for ties to the FARC. Cordoba claims that Speaker Nancy Pelosi was sending messages to the FARC terrorists. Cordoba also claimed during FARC negotiations that Pelosi had assigned Rep. Jim McGovern, as the point man. Captured FARC documents confirmed in March that Mr. McGovern had been working with an American go-between, who had been offering the rebels help in undermining Colombias elected and popular government.
The Wall Street Journal reported on the confiscated FARC documents that implicated Rep. McGovern back in March:
The Reyes hard drive reveals an ardent effort to do business directly with the FARC by Congressman James McGovern (D., Mass.), a leading opponent of the free-trade deal. Mr. McGovern has been working with an American go-between, who has been offering the rebels help in undermining Colombias elected and popular government.
Mr. McGoverns press office says the Congressman is merely working at the behest of families whose relatives are held as FARC kidnap hostages. However, his go-betweens letters reveal more than routine intervention.
Now, today we find out who was directing Rep. McGovern
Mary Anastasia OGrady at The Wall Street Journal reported:
Last fall, Mr. Chávez and the FARC hatched an audacious plan whereby the Venezuelan would take proof of life of Ms. Betancourt to French President Nicolas Sarkozy in Paris, where the plight of Ms. Betancourt was a cause célèbre. The rebels wrote that Mr. Chávez was sure French pressure for negotiations would cause President Bush to order Uribe to allow the meeting between Mr. Chávez and the rebels on Colombian soil, something Mr. Uribe had refused to do. The rebels reported that Mr. Chávez was super-motivated, because he viewed the rendezvous as a public-relations coup that would give him and the FARC continental and world renown.
That plan flopped, but Mr. Chavez had other cards up his sleeve. One involved Colombian Sen. Piedad Cordoba, who is currently under investigation by the Colombian attorney general for ties to the FARC. She figures prominently in the captured rebel documents, and is notoriously close to Mr. Chávez.
She met at the Venezuelan presidential palace with FARC leaders last fall. From that meeting the rebels reported that Piedad says that Chávez has Uribe going crazy. He doesnt know what to do. That Nancy Pelosi helps and is ready to help in the swap [hostages in exchange for captured guerrillas]. That she has designated [U.S. Congressman Jim] McGovern for this.
If the speaker of the House was working with Ms. Cordoba in this scheme, her judgment was more than a little misguided. The rebels write that on a trip to Argentina Ms. Cordoba told them, It doesnt matter to me the proposal that Sarkozy has made to free Ingrid. Above all, do not liberate Ingrid. In short, why give up such a useful pawn?

This isn’t news. Isn’t Valerie Plame still on a book tour or something? Now that is news.
You wouldn’t think
Do I really have to say it?
Sounds like the Attorney General needs to name a special prosecutor to investigate this... Where is Fitzgerald when we need him?
No, wait. Sorry.
I’ve always believed this was the reason all the dems are so against the wiretapping deal.
They are afraid of potential exposure.
Iran Contra - Reagan was ripped to shreds wasn’t he?
I’m calling the Justice Dept. I want these traitors charged.
They are afraid of potential exposure.
They fear data-mining of any sort...remember Able Danger?
Wow! This might leave a mark!
I’ll take, “News that will never be on tha whirld news tanite,” for $1,500 Alex.
Forget it! She would have to have an R beside her name for any attention to be paid to this by the MSM.
The Dems don’t need to worry. They can get exposed up one side and down the other, but they never get charged with anything. I don’t know how treasonous a Dem would have to be to call down some kind of punishment or even censure upon himself. It appears there are no limits.
All I remember about that is-and I may be wrong here-that government negligence was a major cause of 9/11 because they had names but nothing was ever done about it.
I just looked up “Able Danger” and found out that a bunch of the data was destroyed.
The House & Senate Republicans yawn and go back to sleep.
Why in hell we would want to do a free trade agreement with the largest cocaine exporting country in the world is absolutely beyond me.
