4. FARC has every reason to mistrust the Columbian government.
Even if the effort includes Chavez, they rightly know that he is an equal target to discredit.

I wonder why FARC hasn't just dropped the hostages off at some undisclosed pay phone. Maybe FARC isn't to be trusted. I don't know. There are too many opposing interests here for me to believe in a safe and secure outcome.
