Colombia/USA military base court ruling: A good analysis at Just the Facts

This article from Just the Facts is a recommended analysis of yesterday’s Colombian Constitutional court’s decision to call the US/Colombia military base agreement unconstitutional. Here’s one paragraph of many excerpted as a taster:

“Politically, the court’s decision is a blow to both governments because it gives the impression – deserved or no – that the Obama and Uribe administrations sought to do something that violated Colombia’s Constitution. Operationally, however, the defense accord’s suspension will not affect the U.S. presence in Colombia. Not a single U.S. soldier or contractor will have to leave Colombia or alter what he is doing as a result of the Constitutional Court’s decision.”
