Colombian army commits 'extrajudicial execution': Indigenous community .
Tuesday, 12 June 2012 10:18 Olle Ohlsen Pettersson

Colombian indigenous community released on Tuesday a video which allegedly showed the aftermath of an extrajudicial killing by the military.

The video, first published on the site of Confidencial Colombia, allegedly showed members of the Colombian army surrounding the naked corpse of 30-year-old Luis Alberto Cunda, a member of the Nasa people in the southwestern Cauca department.

The victim's neighbors were skeptical of the military's account, saying it would not be logical for a FARC guerrilla to fight without clothes. They went on to point out that Cunda's body showed signs of physical abuse.

Human rights NGO Francisco Isias Cifuentes, claimed soldiers arrived at Cunda's house at 5:50AM and shot him. "Later the military group caught the wounded man (...) and dragged him more or less 70 meters from his home. People in the region said they could hear the young man's screams for help."

3. Because Chavez doesn't agree with "American Exceptionalism"

President Obama is building 7 new bases in Columbia. So they are the "good" guys.

We see Obama speaking in terms now that the previous administration did. Here's a quote from the Air Force graduation speech:
http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/obama-touts-american-exceptionalism-end-of-wars-in-air-force-graduation-speech/2012/05/23/gJQANN2zkU_story.html

“I see an American century because of the character of our country — the spirit that has always made us exceptional,” Obama said. “It’s that simple yet revolutionary idea — there at our founding and in our hearts ever since — that we have it in our power to make the world anew, to make the future what we will.”

Is David Frum still writing the President's speeches?
