49. Yes, Google is fun.
The FARC have stolen and then used military uniforms since the 1960s. If you want to play the Google game, you should do yourself a favor and continue because the information is out there ("FARC operations included raids on military posts and facilities, which enabled the organization to accumulate weapons, ammunition, military uniforms, and even telecommunications equipment." )

With that said, think about what you're arguing with regard to the first example I cited. You're arguing that the military was attempting to frame the FARC by wearing their own uniforms while attacking themselves. Do I need to go further with this? Honestly?
