AllMusic Review by

This spoken word release is in conjunction with anarchist book distributor AK Press. Noam Chomsky examines America's foreign policy and the intersection of drugs, guerrillas, and U.S. involvement. Learn how U.S. military might merely transform hardworking peasants into criminals at work deep in the jungle and out billions in military aid supports a Colombian ruling class rife with corruption. Chomsky lucidly delineates this insidious chain of invents since the beginnings in the '80s of the War on Drugs. This exegesis reflects back on events through the Bush administration providing $43 million in aid to the Taliban to destroy opium poppies in May 2001.
