Biden Series Part 1: The Forgotten Story of How Joe Biden Helped Ramp Up the War on Drugs in Colombia

[Editors Note: As factions of the U.S. political elite grapple with the waning days of the Trump presidency, one cannot help but be left with a sense of irony. From election meddling—whether it be legalized bribery (lobbying), disenfranchisement and gerrymandering at home—to lethal interference abroad, including violent regime-change operations, war and other overt and covert assaults on foreign soil, the power elite capitalist class under Republican and Democratic banners engage in and/or support similar and often worse heinous activities on a regular basis.
