Secreto de los pantanos: Los submarinos con cocaína de Colombia
The Guardian (UK) Secret of the swamps: Colombia's cocaine submarines

Slicing through milky green waters, a Colombian navy patrol wove through the maze of mangroves in the remote Sanquianga national park on the Pacific coast, following a tip.
After eight days, the search paid off. Hidden deep within the boa-infested swampland, the patrol came upon a 60ft hull propped up on a scaffold under a tin-roofed hangar. This was no ordinary shipyard, and it was no ordinary vessel.
Shipbuilders had been putting the finishing fibreglass touches to the hull of what is known here as a narco-sub. Had they finished, the vessel would have been loaded with as much as four tonnes of cocaine and put to sea, headed north, to the US market. ver>>


Los amigos ecuatorianos de las FARC
Wall Street Journal (EE.UU.) The FARC's Ecuadorean Friends

Previously undisclosed documents, fruits of the Colombian military's raid on a Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (a.k.a. FARC) camp in Ecuador in 2008, came into my hands last week.

But he left behind laptop computers containing correspondence detailing a cozy relationship not only with Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez but also -- the fresh documents reveal -- with the government of Ecuadorean President Rafael Correa.
Someone should tell the White House. Ten days ago, President Obama called Mr. Correa to, according to a spokesman, "congratulate him on his recent re-election." Mr. Obama also wanted to "express his desire to deepen our bilateral relationship and to maintain an ongoing dialogue that can ensure a productive relationship based on mutual respect." ver>>

IPS () Las actas de la seguridad democrática

Mientras el mundo estaba pendiente de la investidura de Barack Obama como presidente de Estados Unidos, una operación subrepticia se llevó a cabo entre el 19 y el 21 de enero en la sede del Departamento Administrativo de Seguridad (DAS), adscrito a la Presidencia de Colombia.
Decenas de cajas de archivos, discos duros y externos de computadoras, grabaciones y transcripciones, que contenían el resultado del espionaje a magistrados de la Corte Suprema de Justicia, fiscales, defensores de derechos humanos, políticos opositores y periodistas, fueron destruidas por orden superior.
Un mes después, el 21 de febrero, la bogotana revista Semana y el noticiero de televisión Noticias Uno publicaron la información. ver>>
