Delahunt (Democrat of Massachusetts) and a number of jailed former leaders of the recently-demobilized narco-paramilitary army, the United Self-Defence Forces of Colombia...Delahunt says he has received new information on the extent to which U.S. corporations supported the AUC...Although he added that he could not reveal the content of the interviews or the companies mentioned by the demobilized paramilitaries, Delahunt warned that “they were very specific and clear on the relationships between themselves and the American companies.” [also refers to Chiquita]
