According to a report in Breitbart News, an anonymous source claimed that an official from the United States Congress told the Wall Street Journal that President Joe Biden is planning to remove the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) from the list of designated foreign terrorist groups.
FARC is a group almost 60 years old that is responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands, according to Breitbart’s report, and has been active in Columbia since 1964.
The communist group has been responsible for a number of egregious human rights violations, including mass killings, kidnappings, child rape, forced abortions, and the use of child soldiers. Additionally, it is believed that they run one of the world’s most prolific drug trafficking operations.
Former Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos shoved on the people of Columbia a peace deal with FARC terror leaders in 2016 which granted the terrorist group uncontested seats in Congress, along with several other cushy concessions.
This deal allowed them to establish a political party of their own and did away with the restrictions on profits from international drug trafficking and was the groundwork for record-breaking cocaine production.
Additionally, it caused ” n ongoing wave of leftist mob violence, and a situation in which unelected federal lawmakers are threatening to kill the nation’s democratically elected president from unknown locations in the jungles of Venezuela,” Breitbart reported.
For his efforts and what has caused ongoing destruction of the people of Columbia, Santos won a Nobel Peace Prize, and it appears that Biden is using the legitimization of the terrorist group to justify removing them from the terror watch list, which would relinquish American rights to banish known members from the country.
“The Biden administration will remove a former Colombian rebel group from a list of foreign terrorist organizations, a measure intended to demonstrate American support for a fragile peace agreement with the guerrillas in Colombia, said U.S. and congressional officials with knowledge of the coming announcement,” according to the Journal.
