Columbia is claiming that evidence captured 3 computers of Raul Reyes, a top FARC leader killed in an ambush this weekend, reveals a plethora of information of FARC intelligence including proof of purchased uranium and plans for a dirty bomb.


Colombia said on Tuesday that FARC rebels had been planning to make a “dirty bomb” with radioactive material, threatening the entire Latin American region.

The charges by Vice-President Francisco Santos, at the United Nations-sponsored Conference on Disarmament, marked a dramatic turn in a regional crisis that has seen Venezuela and Ecuador cut diplomatic ties with Colombia.

Bogota has already accused Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez of funding the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) guerrillas, after Colombian forces crossed into Ecuador and killed a senior rebel commander on Saturday, sparking troop movements and warnings of war.

“Just yesterday (Monday) our national police submitted an initial report regarding the content of two computers found with Raul Reyes, second in command of FARC, who was killed last Saturday,” Santos said.

They contained “information from one commander to another indicating that FARC was apparently negotiating for radioactive material, the primary basis for generating dirty weapons of mass destruction and terrorism,” he added.


Speaking at a news conference, Gen. Oscar Naranjo said evidence in three seized computers also suggests FARC had given Chavez 100 million pesos when he was a jailed rebel leader.

Naranjo said other evidence in the computers suggests FARC purchased 50 kilograms of uranium this month.

“The revelations about agreements between the terrorist group FARC and the governments of Ecuador and Venezuela will be submitted to the Organization of American States and the United Nations,” Uribe’s communique said Monday.

Naranjo said the evidence also shows that Ecuador’s minister of security met recently with Reyes, and that Ecuador had “an interest in formalizing relations with the FARC,” according to an account published on a Colombian government Web site.

The plot continues to thicken in this lead up to potential War between the three countries

Captured FARC (Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia) documents revealed Monday that both Ecuadorean president Rafael Correa (right) and Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez are in bed with the Marxist FARC terrorists of Colombia.

The documents also show that Hugo Chavez has pledged $300 million to the FARC and that he has been in bed with the FARC terror group since 1992.

Colombian officials on Tuesday said that FARC rebels are working on a radioactive bomb and that they had purchased 50 kilograms of uranium this month. The information was discovered after Colombian forces ambushed a FARC base and captured a top terrorist’s computer this weekend.

Colombian President Uribe is asking for criminal charges against Hugo Chavez for financing genocide aiding FARC Rebel group who’m Chavez says is not a terrorist organization.
