Colombia is now the 3rd largest recipient of US foreign & military aid, the justification for which is the War on Drugs. In a clear, concise and sometimes bitterly funny lecture, NOAM CHOMSKY shows us who is getting the money, who is producing and exporting the drugs, and what the war on the ground is really about. In the ongoing debate over whether Colombia will become the "next Vietnam" CHOMSKY'S analysis will provide a great introduction to the Colombian elite, the role of the US media, how "development" works. Imagine the film Traffic starring CHOMSKY instead of Michael Douglas. NOAM CHOMSKY teaches at MIT and lives in Boston. NOAM CHOMSKY is perhaps the foremost critic of American foreign policy, the media which propagandizes on its behalf, and the economic system which provides the real motor for its deadly course. Certainly the most tireless critic, he writes profusely and lectures frequently.
