A university funded by the US Defense Department has again been accused of hiring former foreign security officials who have links to human rights offenses, according to a new report, a possible violation of a federal law that outlawed such associations.
According to reporting by the Center for Public Integrity, Sen. Patrick Leahy has requested an explanation from the Pentagon for the National Defense University's hiring of the former chief of the Colombian armed forces, Carlos Alberto Ospina Ovalle.
Ospina has been linked by several human rights organizations -- including Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch, among other groups -- to the 1997 pro-government militia massacre of El Aro, a northern Colombian village. Allegedly, the Ospina-led 4th Brigade looked the other way during the ransacking of the town, where many were brutally murdered, homes destroyed, and hundreds of cattle stolen.
In 2001, the Colombian attorney general cleared Ospina, but a 2006 report by the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights found “the participation and acquiescence” of the Colombian army in the paramilitary actions that occurred at El Aro.
