Friday Film: Plan Colombia: Cashing in on the Drug War

Plan Colombia: Cashing in on the Drug War (2003) is a documentary about the the drug trade in Colombia and the US efforts to combat the problem. It strongly critiques the ineffectual approach that the US has taken under the so-called ‘Plan Colombia.’ I have written before about how the United States needs to reconsider its appraoch to the war on drugs, and when I first watched it a number of years ago it opened my eyes to the continuing destructive behavior of the US in Latin America, that many believe is a thing of the past. Even now the US is pursuing similar policies across the Andean region.
