Independence Day Indeed for Ingrid Betancourt

Ingrid Betancourt in Captivity

Today, as we celebrate July 4th we can also celebrate the brilliant rescue of Ingrid Betancourt who has been held hostage by those FARC f**kers in Colombia for over 6 years.

Congratulations to President Uribe, Minister of Defense Santos and the Colombian Special Forces for freeing Betancourt, Americans Marc Gonsalves, Thomas Howes and Keith Stansell, and 11 members of the Colombian Security Forces.

There are still more hostages being held by FARC and I can only hope that Uribe, whose father was killed by FARC in 1983, gets the rest of them out quickly.
