This controversial book lifts the lid on US policy in Latin America both during and after the Cold War. It demonstrates that the war on drugs and the "war on terror" is actually part of brutal pursuit of economic interests, with US policy directly contributing to the horrific human rights situation in Colombia today. America's Forgotten War maintains that in Colombia the US has long supported a pervasive campaign of state violence directed against both armed insurgents and a wide range of unarmed progressive social forces. While the reason for this violence may change from one decade to the next, the basic policies remain the same: maintain the pro-US Colombian state, protect US economic interests and preserve strategic access to oil.
