"Tony White, a professor of history at Sonoma State University, said the United States is not fighting a “war on drugs” in Colombia but is protecting American mining, oil and logging interests in the area. The U.S. is spending $7.5 billion in the counter-narcotics initiative known as Plan Colombia." [2]

"Tony White, who in addition to teaching Latin American history has been the long-term director of the Global Studies Program at Sonoma State University, announced this spring that the program has won approval as a major department at SSU.
