Comparable to what happened in 2007, the year 2008 was marked by large contrasts. On the one hand, Uribe's administration executed unrivaled military successes consolidating his policy of Democratic Security by debilitating the organization structure of the FARC and improving all violence indicators -with remarkable success in the kidnapping drama-. However, in the downside, numerous scandals resulting from questionable behavior of state agents resulted in a very negative evaluation of the democratic compromise of the government. Political uncertainty reigns due to the possibility of a third reelection.
