Report: CIA has helped Colombia kill dozens of rebel leaders
By The Associated Press December 22, 2013 12:01 AM

WASHINGTON - The Washington Post is reporting that a covert CIA program has helped Colombia's government kill at least two dozen leaders of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, the rebel insurgency also known as FARC.

The Post says the National Security Agency has also provided "substantial eavesdropping help" to the Colombian government.

And the paper says the U.S. provided Colombia with GPS equipment that can be used to transform regular munitions into "smart bombs" that can accurately home in on specific targets, even if they are located in dense jungles.

The Post report is based on interviews with more than 30 former and current U.S. and Colombian officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the program is classified and ongoing.
