** FILE ** Jailed rebel Ricardo Palmera, alias Simon Trinidad, can be seen at the U.S. federal penitentiary in Florence, Colo., in this Aug. 8, 2012, photo provided by Jaime Palmera. 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)
