U.S. Policy in Colombia

Jun 27, 2005

The Colombian Congress' recent passage of a controversial law limiting the potential punishment of paramilitary groups in exchange for their disarmament has sparked a heated debate over the proper balance between peace and justice. Recently, U.S. Ambassador to Colombia William B. Wood defended the Bush administration's decision to support the measure despite criticism from several members of Congress and a variety of human rights organizations. He also outlined U.S. strategy and progress in countering terrorism and narcotics in the country and assessed the strength and stability of Colombia's government institutions.
