White House Drug Czar to Discuss Success of Plan Colombia During Foreign Policy Briefing


Hudson Institute’s Center for Latin American Studies will host John Walters, director of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), and President Bush’s “Drug Czar,” on Wednesday, Aug. 31, at 10 a.m. Walters will discuss the success of Plan Colombia.

Plan Colombia has thrived under the leadership of President Uribe. Over the past three years there has been a dramatic reduction in cocaine production, advances in the human rights situation, and an increase in the rule of law and security for Colombian citizens. All this has served to stabilize a major democracy in the Western Hemisphere and has created a vibrant climate for foreign investment and economic growth. The tide has turned in a 40 year subversion of the rule of law in Colombia.

WHAT: “Colombia: Drugs, Terror, Progress, and Opportunity”

WHO: John P. Walters, director of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP)

WHEN: Wednesday, Aug. 31, 10 – 11:30 a.m.

WHERE: Hudson Institute, 1015 15th Street, NW, Sixth Floor, Washington, D.C.

Please note Hudson’s new location on McPherson Square at 15th and K Streets.
