GRANADA, Colombia, March 21 (UPI) -- Colombian soldiers are being blamed for killing homeless or unemployed men as a result of pressure to show progress in their battle against leftist rebels.
Human rights officials have blamed the soldiers for a number of unsolved deaths -- referred to as "false positives" -- in recent months, the Los Angeles Times reported Friday.
The Colombian military has received several billion dollars from the United States during the last several years for its battle against leftist rebel groups.

Why are we giving money to them for a war? Don't we have our own war going on and shouldn't that money be concentrated on our efforts? This is crazy. IMO, it's got to have something to do with the drug trade.
