Colombia: November 6, 2003


 In the last year, Colombia has seen murders reduced by 22 percent, kidnappings are down 35 percent, rescues of kidnap victims up 23 percent and illegal drug crops have been reduced by 70 percent. A year ago, some 200 towns were under rebel control, now it is only 96. But president Uribe has not been able to make as much progress on corruption in the government. People are desperate for peace, but not nearly as eager to see clean government.
