Arianna Huffington reports on lobbyists who pushed "Plan Colombia"

Rohter Rooter: And Away Goes Journalism Down the Drain...

And after Clinton signed the $1.3 Billion Colombia War Package Thursday, New York Times propagandist Larry Rohter (lobbying for narco-publicist of the month?), finally reported on the El Salado massacre of 71 civilians by paramilitaries that happened last February -- they were protected during the attack by the same Colombian Army that will receive the bulk of US aid -- the Timesman let the War Criminal McCaffrey get away, unquestioned, with this cynical quote:

"The paramilitaries are some of the worst of the
terrorists who profit from drugs in Colombia, and in
no way can anyone justify their human rights
violations," said Gen. Barry R. McCaffrey, the White
House drug policy director. But he said "the Colombian
military is making dramatic improvements in its human
rights record," and noted that the aid package
includes "significant money, $46 million, for human
rights training and implementation."
