Saluting Three Americans
I thought it would be fitting to acknowledge the three Americans who were also released along with Ingrid Betancourt. They came home in time for the Fourth, and I know how overjoyed they and their families must be. Since America has poured at least 5 billion dollars into training the Colombian Army, it is safe to say we had some role to play in the rescue. The three miltary contractors Keith Stansell, Marc Gonsalves and Thomas Howes are seen being briefed by the US Ambassador to Colombia William Brownfield.
