From Colombia there is news of the latest feud over security issues between President Juan Manuel Santos and high ranking officials from the previous administration. RCN Radio reports that former Peace Commissioner Luis Carlos Restrepo stated Santos has no leadership over the security forces and has undermined the ideals set by former President Alvaro Uribe. Restrepo also accused Santos of lying when he said that there were no more FARC camps in Venezuela. Restrepo’s statements come just over a month after allegations that he took part in a bogus demobilization of a group posing as members of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia – FARC).
