fiscal cliff update..................From Common Dreams
''In a recent edition of the
Wall Street Journal, Mary Anastasia O'Grady laments an apparent shift left in the Obama
administration's Latin America policy. Clearly, O'Grady hasn't
been keeping up to date with current events. If she had been, she would
have heard about negotiations underway between the U.S. and Colombia
to establish at least seven U.S. military bases in Colombia. Last I
heard, folks on the left tend to oppose increased militarization; it's
tough to see seven new military bases as a move to the left.
Why is the Obama administration
pushing for these bases, despite having previously
human rights record?''
