Yesterday's ATC had a Forero story on the paramilitary death squads in Colombia. Forero put the blame on the Colombian government, but conspicuously forgot to mention a major source of fudnding for their security operations (under the umbrella of the war on drugs): the US of A.
There was also a lame report on the privatization of Sallie Mae. I wonder why I didn't hear the words: asset stripping.

Yes, it was a half-step wasn't it. I was curious why Forero even covered the murder of union leaders and activists by the Columbian government/paramilitaries. But - of course - he left out the role of US advisers, money, etc.
