The president spent his first term in office largely dancing around a tangible far-reaching policy change for the region. As COHA stated two months ago, “In trying to shun the imperialistic rhetoric of previous administrations, the non-interventionism that the Obama administration has applied to the region has been translated into indifference for the less fortunate citizens of the continent.”   [Read more]
