If you were able to read the article I preiously posted, which is in Spanish, you will remember at the end of the article that Chavez is the key to getting the FARC to release hostages. Without safe haven in Venezuela, the FARC would be on the run in Colombia and not enjoying their 'wine, women, and song'.
Well, here's proof of how connected Chavez is to the FARC:
The thing is, Chavez is rather smart. He knows that he has the FARC over a barrel. He knows he has the President of Colombia over a barrel, because he can influenc the FARC and make the Colombian President look powerless.
Chavez will milk this for all it's worth, and unfortunately, he'll come out smelling like a rose (at least to the media that doesn't bother to dig too deep into his nepharious dealings).
