The Politics of Global Drug Trafficking

Program #SCOP001. Recorded in Durango, CO on April 04, 1995.

Crusades against drugs are a routine part of the political landscape. Wars are declared. Czars are appointed. Billions are appropriated. More and more prisons are built. The untold and amazing part of the drug war is that there is considerable evidence that covert U.S. involvement with regimes and movements has exacerbated the problem. Afghanistan, Pakistan, Central America and Panama are just recent examples of U.S. policy gone awry. This is a revelatory and blockbuster program. Few are better informed on this issue than Peter Dale Scott.
