When most people think of U.S. meddling in Latin America, they think of Roosevelt's "gunboat diplomacy," Nixon's aiding in the overthrow of Chile's Salvador Allende, or Reagan's training of the Contras. In other words, the Republicans are the bad guys. Democratic administrations, from Truman to Obama, however, have a sordid tradition of intervening in Latin America in the name of anti-Communism. In fact, the logistical support, training, and military hardware provided by the Kennedy and Johnson administrations helped erect the sophisticated regimes of surveillance, torture, and disappearance from the Southern Cone to Central America. Yankee imperialism is, was, and continues to be a bipartisan project.
