Isacson: U.S. Needs 'Humility' in Latin America

Interviewee: Adam Isacson
Interviewer: Stephanie Hanson
February 28, 2007

Adam Isacson, director of programs at the Center for International Policy in Washington, discusses the Bush administration's 2008 foreign aid proposal for Latin America. He notes that the drug war is on the back burner, and instead of competing with Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez's generous aid packages to countries like Bolivia and Ecuador, the United States is "picking up its ball and going home." He suggests the United States needs to show "a little bit of humility" in its dealings with the region.
