Ready, Aim, Foreign Policy (2008)
Ready, Aim, Foreign Policy is the latest report from the Just the Facts Project, a 10-year collaboration between the Washington Office on Latin America, the Center for International Policy and the Latin America Working Group Education Fund.
The report documents a disturbing transformation of U.S. foreign policy decision-making in Latin America and around the world. The Defense Department’s leadership of foreign military aid and training programs is increasing. The State Department, which once had sole authority to direct and monitor such programs, is ceding control. Moreover, changes to the U.S. military’s geographic command structure could grant the military a greater role in shaping, and becoming the face of, U.S. foreign policy where it counts—on the ground.
