President Bush Visits Latin America Amid Protests

Audio

Aired 4/19/09

Maureen Cavanaugh (Guest Host): President George W. Bush has been in Latin America since Thursday, meeting with the leaders of several countries. The trip has been billed as a mission to sign trade agreements. Critics say it may be an attempt to divert attention away from the war in Iraq. The trip is surely an effort to improve relations in a region that is increasingly hostile to the U.S. In fact, the streets of many major Latin cities have roiled with thousands of anti-American protesters.

Guest

  • Jeremy Martin, director of the Energy Program at UCSD's Institute of the Americas.
