One of Colombia’s most-grizzled and important rebel fighters is calling on President Barack Obama to do more to support peace and to free a guerrilla leader jailed for more than a decade in the United States.

Speaking in his jungle hideout in southern Colombia, the guerrilla commander known by the alias Martin Corena said such a move would be the best way for the Obama administration to back with actions its public support for an approaching deal to end decades of fighting.

“There’s been a lot of statements and verbal demonstrations of support, but in practice, up to now, the support of the United States hasn’t been viable and hasn’t become real,” Corena said.
