U.S. Soldiers Accused of Selling Arms to Colombian Paramilitaries
Like the GIs Caught Smuggling Cocaine Last Month, They Won’t Face Trial or Investigation in Colombia

On Tuesday, Colombian authorities arrested Lieutenant Colonel Alan Norman and Sergeant Jose Hernandez of the United States Army, for illegally trafficking weapons and ammunition. The arms – according to press reports more than 30,000 “projectiles” were found in the house where the two were arrested – were almost certainly meant for sale to paramilitary groups, the right-wing death squad militias that terrorize Colombia’s people.
The U.S. Embassy and its bosses back home have kicked into damage control, and are trying to sweep this one under the rug. And so far, the U.S. media aren’t doing much to stop them.

Oh, I know it won't stop. I just thought I'd bring this up because it's typical and rediculous that this is still going and no one in our government is doing anything to stop it.
