Description

Drawing a portrait of the rampant violence that characterizes the decades old Colombian civil war, Kirk (a researcher for Human Rights Watch) links American drug consumption and U.S. government policy to the spiral of violence carried out by government-linked paramilitaries and rebel guerillas. Although she takes the American government's proclamations about it's intentions in Colombia at face value, she condemns the so-called "war on drugs" as an abject failure.
