 Álvaro Uribe Vélez : Alvaro Uribe
Independent liberal candidate, elected in the first round of the May, 2002 elections in Colombia.
His electoral platform was centred around the policy of confronting Colombia's main guerrilla movement, Las Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia (FARC), after four years of unsuccessful attempts by the previous administration of Andres Pastrana to negotiate a ceasefire with the guerrillas, and the decreasing public support for the guerrillas.
Uribe is often mis-characterized as a "hard-line right-winger" due to his stance against the FARC and the ELN[?], despite his centrist socioeconomic policies and his continued openness to the negotiation of an end to the conflict, which is contingent upon the armed groups first declaring a cease-fire.

Since the launch of Plan Colombia, civil society in Colombia and the rest of America, North and South, including in Canada and within the United States, took a sharp turn against the Plan's foundation: the U.S.-imposed policy of drug prohibition in Our America and across the globe.

Bush did not mention Colombia in his post-attack remarks, his vow to defeat "every terrorist group within global reach" and defining of any government that "harbors or supports terrorism" as a "hostile regime" could not have been more thinly veiled in its threat upon Colombia and Latin America.
In a hypocritical slight of hand, the list singles out governments that support "terrorist" organizations, with nary a mention of governments that themselves engage in the exact same acts of violence and brutality that define terrorism.

In 2003, a federal court dismissed the claims against Coke, arguing that its relationship with the owners of the Coke bottling plant in Colombia was too attenuated to hold the soft drink multinational responsible for human rights abuses at the plant.
The plaintiffs have since refiled their complaint – they argue the original decision was mistaken, but that Coke's subsequent purchase of the Colombia bottlers means the company is now clearly responsible for the bottlers' actions.
It capitalized on its venerable reputation in Washington to become the banker to the embassies that dot the city and the large foreign diplomatic corps resident in the U.S. capital.
