Hillary vs the Colombian Free Trade Agreement

I'll be missing most of the Congressional three ring circus surrounding Gen. Petraeus's testimony today, but here's more on Hillary's double-dealing on Colombia:

While she's saying that she's against the agreement, and the Democrat party has caved in to labor unions' objections in spite of the fact that the agreement would strengthen America's most important ally in South America, Mark Penn, her campaign strategist was also working for the Colombian government towards pushing the agreement.

Penn was fired by the Colombians on Saturday and lost his job as Hillary's campaign strategist on Sunday, but will remain as pollster and adviser to the Hillary campaign, whatever that means.

There's another supporter, the Democratic-leaning advocacy firm the Glover Park Group who
signed a $40,000 per month contract with the government of Colombia in April of 2007 to promote the very agreement that Clinton now rails against on the presidential campaign trail.

That means Glover Park Group was arguing the same position as Penn's firm.
One word to the Colombian government: Google.
