Palmera's journey from the Colombia's highest social circles to jungle battlegrounds and finally to a U.S. prison mirrors the complexity of the confrontation that the talks starting this week in Cuba are meant to end. The Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, considers him a prisoner of war. (AP Photo/Courtesy of Jaime Palmera)
