Via Hot Air is the claim that Hugo Chavez is behaving himself better with respect to Colombia because of data captured during a raid on FARC.

If true, I think that’s a dumb move. In the long term, Colombia would be better off to release as much accurate and discrediting information as possible, because thugs like Chavez don’t reconsider, they only bide their time. Meanwhile, the impact of any captured information will fade. What would be smart, though, would be for Colombian President Uribe to pretend to have damaging information because it’s a sucker bet that Chavez has been more involved with FARC than any currently public annoucements indicate.
