Colombia Drug War Package passes House Through Opposition, Moves to Senate. Resisted by more Democrats than Republicans. Spring, 2000. [TopLink]

3-2000. March 31, 2000 DRCnet weekly ezine. Colombia article:
http://www.drcnet.org/wol/131.html#colombiapackage
A quote from the last paragraph follows. Note the preponderance of Democrats voting (unsuccessfully) to strip out the military drug war aspect of the bill.
"An amendment by Rep. David Obey (D-WI), eliminating the military portions, received 186 votes, 127 Democratic, 58 Republican and one independent (results at
http://143.231.123.93/cgi-bin/vote.exe?year=2000&rollnumber=84 )."
--- DRCnet excerpt begins ---

On Thursday, March 29, [2000] the House of Representatives was expected to vote on and pass an Emergency Supplemental Appropriations bill (H.R. 3908), including a $1.7 billion anti-drug assistance package to Colombia and its Latin American neighbors, championed by drug czar Barry McCaffrey and some conservatives in Congress. Amendments that would have eliminated the Colombia package, or stripped out the military component, were rejected on the House floor on Wednesday [March 29, 2000].

The Colombia package has been more controversial that its proponents expected, however, and human rights, Latin America and drug policy reform advocates were encouraged by the degree of opposition shown on both sides of the Congressional aisle. Rep. Jim Ramstad (R-MN) held a press conference with Sylvester Salcedo, a retired Navy Lt. Commander who has come out against the drug war, and Ramstad presented an amendment to eliminate the Colombia package (see interview below).
The Ramstad amendment received 158 votes in favor, 89 Democratic, 68 Republican and 1 independent. (Visit http://143.231.123.93/cgi-bin/vote.exe?year=2000&rollnumber=86 to see who voted for and against.) An amendment by Rep. David Obey (D-WI), eliminating the military portions, received 186 votes, 127 Democratic, 58 Republican and one independent (results at http://143.231.123.93/cgi-bin/vote.exe?year=2000&rollnumber=84 ).

4-2000. US: Narcotics Bill Reopens Drug War Debate. Boston Globe article excerpts:
Representative David Obey, a Wisconsin Democrat, shouted: "If you are willing to fight the drug war 1,000 miles from here, why aren't you willing to fight it in your backyard!" Representative Dan Burton, an Indiana Republican, shouted back: "This could get so big that if we don't help Colombia now, we could be forced to send American troops in to deal with it!"
[...]
The drug treatment proponents, led by Representative Nancy Pelosi, a California Democrat, had one major weapon in their argument: a 1994 Rand study, commissioned by the US government, that showed dollars spent for treatment were 23 times more effective than dollars spent on interdiction in foreign countries.

Republican Rudolph (Rudy) Giuliani up there with Bob Barr in pure evilness. [TopLink]

Leading Republican propagandist drug warrior at work. He is the perfect example of the Republican who scares Democrats into following the Republican Drug War lead. One example is spinning away a marijuana killing by the New York narcs. This is important. Imagine if all the press allowed this type of marijuana killing to be spun by Republican mayor Rudy Giuliani. Overall, Republicans are far more callous toward average people than Democrats. Giuliani is approaching Republican representative Bob Barr levels of drug war fascism.

*12-1998. US: Just Say 'Wait a Minute' 'The Fix' and 'Drug Crazy.' Article excerpt:
This fall, for example, when President Clinton's drug czar, General Barry McCaffrey, announced that he wanted to make methadone more widely available, one of the first to attack the plan was New York mayor Rudy Giuliani, who argued that instead of replacing one kind of addiction with another the goal should be to "try to make America drug free."

*6-1998. Progressive. Still Seeing Red: The CIA Fosters Death Squads In Colombia.
"In the name of fighting drugs, the CIA financed new military intelligence networks there in 1991. ... they incorporated illegal paramilitary groups into their ranks and fostered death squads. These death squads killed trade unionists, peasant leaders, human-rights, journalists, and other suspected 'subversives.' ... In May 1991, Colombia completely reorganized its military intelligence networks 'based on the recommendations made by the commission of U.S. military advisers,' according to the secret Colombian reorganization order, which Human Rights Watch made public in 1996. ... The secret Colombian order instructed the military to maintain plausible deniability from the networks and their crimes. Retired military officers and other civilians were to act as clandestine liaisons between the networks and the military commanders. All open communications 'must be avoided.' There 'must be no written contracts with informants or civilian members of the network; everything must be agreed to orally.' And the entire chain of command 'will be covert and compartmentalized, allowing for the necessary flexibility to cover targets of interest.' Facts about the new intelligence networks became known only after four former agents in Barrancabermeja began testifying in 1993 about the intelligence network there. What compelled them to come forward? Each said the military was actively trying to kill them in order to cover up the network and its crimes. By then the military had 'disappeared' four other ex-agents in an attempt to keep the network and its operations secret."
