A New U.S.-Colombia Relationship: Transnational Crime and U.S. National Security (Audio)

In this installment of FPRI Radio COL (ret.) Robert Killebrew of the Center for a New American Security discussed his article, co-authored with COL David Glaser and Matthew Irvine, from the spring 2012 issue of Orbis entitled “A New U.S.-Colombia Relationship: Transnational Crime and U.S. National Security.” In this conversation, with FPRI’s Michael Noonan, Killebrew discussed lessons learned both from America’s involvement in supporting Colombia against the FARC criminal insurgency, but also what the U.S. can learn from the Colombian experience. The role of transnational organized crime and criminal insurgencies in Mexico and Central America were also discussed.

This topic was the subject of his recent Orbis article, A New U.S.-Colombian Relationship: Transnational Crime And U.S. National Security. Volume 56, Issue 2, Spring 2012
