U.S. meddling in Bolivian politics uncovered

Investigative journalist Jeremy Bigwood says he’s obtained six documents through a FOIA request that prove the American government “has been and continues to be conspiring against the government” of Bolivian President Evo Morales. The e-mails and other records show that “development funds” from USAID and the National Endowment for Democracy were heavily directed to anti-Morales groups meant to serve as a “counterweight to the radical MAS (Movement Toward Socialism) or its successors.” More info and the raw documents are at Bigwood’s new blog. (Thanks to David Morris for the e-mail.)
