Classified By: Charge d'Affaires, a.i., Roger Pierce. 
Reasons 1.5 (B) and (D). 
 
1. (C) Upon receipt of reftel Post reviewed the legal 
criteria for designation and determined that Post does not 
have any additional foreign terrorist organizations (FTO) to 
recommend for inclusion in the list of FTOs. 
 
2. (C) Post notes that both the FARC and to a lesser extent 
the AUC have been active in Honduras attempting to exchange 
cocaine for weapons.  GOH authorities recently arrested a 
Colombian citizen named Ethalson Mejia Hoy who entered 
Honduras using a false identity carrying a small amount of 
marijuana.  He is allegedly a member of the FARC seeking to 
arrange a drugs for guns transaction.
