The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists at the Center for Public Integrity investigates the involvement of the United States in "the biggest guerilla war since Vietnam." The 35,000-word story reveals that "hundred of American troops, spies and civilian contract employees are on the ground in Colombia and neighboring lands, helping to coordinate a $1.3 billion counterdrug program that will probably continue for many years." The reporters finds evidence that the American military aid to Colombia, Peru and Mexico has been implicated in human rights abuses. The team analyses the significance of U.S. economic interests in Colombia, Peru, Brazil and Mexico, and looks specifically at the American oil and trade interests as a key factor in the so-called "Colombia plan," another name for the drug war in Colombia.
