Plan Colombia NOT Abandoned

Regarding my post yesterday about Hugh O’Shaughnessy’s article claiming that Condoleezza Rice had announced that the U.S. was “abandoning” Plan Colombia…
I just talked with a spokesman for the State Department and he says that is incorrect, and that he does not know where O’Shaughnessy got his story.
The State Department spokesman said there are no plans to abandon Plan Colombia, and while the original plan expires this year, they are working with Congress for additional funding to keep it going.
This fits in with all the other information I had heard. I don’t expect the administration to back off on Plan Colombia. But given the amount of negative press, there’s a chance that Congress will be harder to persuade this time.
