"This is breaking new ground for U.S. Army, Europe, and really for the U.S. Army.We are going down a whole different path of the way we do business with this Area Processing Center," said Speer."Simply put, this should enable the warfighter to extend their desktops to wherever they go," he added.
"[The APC opening] is key evidence in Lean Six Sigma even though at the time we began,when it was a PowerPoint slide,we didn't even know it was Lean Six Sigma that we were engaging in," said Speer. Official: No Combat Role in Colombia, 20 June 2002 [cached]
Gary Speer, acting commander in chief of the Southern Command.He noted that the brigade has not been accused of human rights abuses.
Colombia's three main rebel groups the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, FARC; the National Liberation Army of Colombia, ELN; and the United Self-Defense Group of Colombia, AUC are on the State Department's list of foreign terrorist organizations.All three are self-financed through drug trafficking, Speer said.
The AUC, a right-wing paramilitary group, aims to destroy the FARC and the ELN, both leftist guerrilla armies.
Dodd said the FARC recently had an estimated 17,000 members, while AUC had 11,000.But support for the AUC has increased as FARC-sponsored violence grew, he said.
"When people are frightened, they will grasp onto whatever offers some security," Dodd said.
Colombia's military now views the AUC as a greater threat than the FARC or the ELN, Speer said."The people in Colombia look at the AUC as doing something."
Said Dodd: "I have an eerie feeling you're going to be back here at this table next year telling me it's not getting better, it's getting worse," with the AUC growing to 18,000 people.
A report Wednesday from the House International Relations Committee's Republican majority contends the IRA and the FARC have had well-established links since at least 1998.
