Evo Morales: DEA Complicit in Drug Trade

Bolivian leader Evo Morales plans to present proof to Barack Obama that the US DEA has actually encouraged drug trafficking. The DEA was asked to leave the country and did not.
Throughout the 1990s, the DEA in Bolivia "bribed police officers, violated human rights, covered up murders, destroyed bridges and roads," said Quintana.

Morales earlier Thursday said that after a 1986 operation in Huanchaca National Park, it was determined that the largest cocaine processing plant "was under DEA protection."

He also charged that the DEA had investigated political and union leaders opposed to neoliberal economic policies, which he said amounted to political persecution.
I hope Evo Morales will be safe.
