This article details the two-fold covert aid the USG has been providing the Colombian Government to combat FARC and ELN – real time intelligence and GPS guided smart-bombs – in order to eliminate high value targets within the guerrilla organizations. American-made smart bombs were used in the bombing operation to neutralized Raul Reyes, a FARC leader, in Ecuador. Moreover, these bombing efforts have brought FARC to the negotiating table in Havana for peace talks.
