Reporter Stephen Rodrick discusses his month long stay in Columbia, depicting the country's substantial cocaine business as well as the U.S. influence to combat an new billion dollar anti-drug effort. In addition, Rodrick depicts the country's challenge for peace within, describing the on-going war between Columbia's two main guerrilla groups (FARC and AUC). Through his interviews with coca farmers, Colombian army commandos and widows of guerrilla warfare, Rodrick states ". . . I talk with more than a hundred Colombians. The poor and the rich agree on only two things: American aid will make an unspeakably horrible situation even worse. And Americans will die here."
