U.S. Colombia Policy
Program #CHON160. Recorded in Boston, MA on May 12, 2000.The U.S. is dramatically escalating the drug war in Colombia. The billion-dollar-plus increase in aid will mostly go to the security forces who are implicated in cocaine trafficking and human rights violations. Elite U.S. Special Forces are in Colombia training the military in counterinsurgency tactics. The militarization of the decades long civil conflict will only further destabilize the country and the Andean region. While Colombia gets chemical weapons and helicopter gunships, U.S. drug prevention and rehab programs are starved for funds.
