Latin America has definitely gotten better over the last four decades, though Venezuela is about to crash. So says veteran former diplomat Bill Brownfield, a three time U.S. Ambassador (Chile, Venezuela, and Colombia) and most recently the Assistant Secretary of State for International Narcotics and Law Enforcement (INL). Ambassador Brownfield gives Colombia a good grade for the long term, but flags increased coca production as a problem. He also discusses the future of counter narcotics cooperation with Mexico. Most importantly, the Lone Star state native explains the origins of Brownfield, Texas.
