The C.I.A.'s takeover of Costa Rica / Martha Honey ; interviewed by Dennis Bernstein.
PRA Archive #: 

Journalist Martha Honey discusses the results of her investigation into United States intervention in Latin America, particularly Costa Rica. She begins by tracing United States policy toward Costa Rica since 1980, and how it serves as a blueprint for our actions throughout Latin America. Honey next discusses the long-term economic and political impact of United States actions in Costa Rica. Part of United States trade policies in this hemisphere, Honey continues, involves the development of new crops which will further impoverish Latin countries. Next, Honey traces specific CIA activities in Costa Rica, and how those actions supported broader United States policy goals. She concludes by tracing events surrounding the La Panca bombing, Oliver North, Admiral Poindexter, and other Reagan-Bush covert actions and operatives.
