Waning Influence In Latin America

regarding nonsensical U.S. positions on monetary policy, Cuba and drugs.   Some Secret Service men got caught with their pants down, to add insult to injury.   Thanks to HL for forwarding this link.

Unprecedented Latin American opposition to U.S. sanctions on Cuba left President Barack Obama isolated at a summit on Sunday and illustrated Washington’s declining influence in a region being aggressively courted by China.

Unlike the rock-star status he enjoyed at the 2009 Summit of the Americas after taking office, Obama has had a bruising time at the two-day meeting in Colombia of some 30 heads of state.

Sixteen U.S. security personnel were caught in an embarrassing prostitution scandal before Obama arrived, Brazil and others have bashed him over U.S. monetary policy and he has been on the defensive over Cuba and calls to legalize drugs.
