In one message from January 2007, the rebel leader known by his alias Ivan Marquez recounts for fellow commanders how he met with Carvajal and another army general and was promised delivery of 20 "very powerful bazookas." The indictment against my company Carvajal doesn't discuss ties to the FARC. Instead, it focuses on payments he and other senior military officials allegedly received from Wilber Varela, one of Colombia's biggest kingpins before his 2008 murder in Venezuela. Carvajal was being held in the central town of Santa Cruz in Aruba, where Friday's hearing took place. Carvajal's arrest follows the indictment unsealed in southern Florida this week against two other Venezuelan officials for allegedly working to protect another Colombian drug trafficker. According to a criminal complaint, police officer Rodolfo McTurk was serving as the director of Interpol in Venezuela when he confronted an unnamed trafficker arrested in February 2009. After negotiations, the trafficker allegedly agreed to pay McTurk $400,000 in cash immediately and $75,000 a month to be released and allowed to continue his activities. Three traffickers told a special agent with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration that the operations could not have continued without McTurk's help.

Star Wars Rebels TV Movie Video Blog Reaction: Peters brief text reaction: Set five years before Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, the show follows a group of misfits that band together in a small group aboard a freighter starship called the Ghost the origins of the Rebel Alliance. Star Wars Rebels will premiere in October 2014 as a one-hour special, which is what we screened in San Diego. Since it was an early unfinished cut of the special, we are not reviewing it on the site, but we will give you a spoiler-free reaction. I consider myself a huge Star Wars fan but I never could get into the Clone Wars Animated Series. The movie debut of the show was passable at best, and I tried many times to get through the first season without success. To be fair, many of my trusted friends have said it gets much much better in the second and third seasons I plan to finish the series at some point.
