The leaders of 34 nations of North, Central and South America closed a hemispheric conference in Chile on Saturday (4/18) with an agreement of increased Drug War cooperation. The alliance, brought together under the auspices of the Organization of American States, will begin meeting in Washington next month. Some U.S. officials have indicated that the alliance would eventually take on the role of judging each nation's progress, a task now undertaken by the U.S. Congress as part of its certification process. Republican leaders have already indicated that they will not accept any such changes.
