Latin America Consensus Drifts ‘Leftward’

It’s striking the degree to which the “reasonable” foreign policy consensus on Latin America has drifted to the “left.” The Brookings Institution just released a report (via the NY Times today) that more or less echoes a letter addressed to the Obama campaign last month by the Latin American Studies Association and 400 academics (via Christopher Moraff’s WPR piece last week).

It’s also striking the degree to which the major news outlets’ coverage of foreign policy plays catch up to WPR. Get it here first, folks.
