Colombia’s president calls for change – “Dan Rather Reports” AT A SPECIAL TIME – Tuesday, September 25th 10:00 p.m. ET

DALLAS (September 24, 2012) – The nation of Colombia has accepted billions of dollars in U.S. aid for fighting drug traffickers and eradicating drug crops. But now, Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos tells Dan Rather it’s time to rethink the entire effort – and at least consider decriminalizing drugs.

President Santos remains one of Washington’s best friends in Latin America. But in a candid interview with Dan Rather, it’s clear he’s not afraid to challenge longstanding U.S. drug-fighting dogma.

“Dan Rather Reports: El Presidente” airs this week AT A SPECIAL TIME Tuesday, September 25th at 10:00 p.m. ET/7:00 p.m. PT only on AXS TV.
