Mission impossible for Piedad Córdoba or Piedad 8

Now that Colombia’s president Álvaro Uribe has decided that only the International Red Cross and the church can intermediate to liberate hostages of the leftist guerrilla group FARC, senator Piedad Córdoba and her Colombians for Peace have a problem. 

 The president doesn’t want the FARC to get political protagonism through the negotiations with Colombians for peace. And it is more, he doesn’t want Piedad and the opposition as a whole to gain political force through their contact with the FARC.

The president want to keep protagonism for himself at the cost of those who have been suffering for years in their captivity in the jungle. It is inhuman. He is doing exactly what he is accusing Colombians for Peace for. He is looking for protagonism.

Pablo Emilio Moncayo was going to be liberated. This will probably not happen so quicky anymore. The poor guy, who was kidnapped when he was 19, is about 30 now.

It is a shame, it is a big shame that a president is so scared about his image that he sacrifices the lives of others.
