Colombia Aid

NPR's Gerry Hadden reports from Bogota, Colombia, where the government — one of the largest benefactors of American foreign aid — is worried that the terrorist attacks in America may keep the money from coming. On Sept. 11, Secretary of State Colin Powell was supposed to visit Colombia at the beginning of his Latin America tour. However, the attack has changed the United States' agenda, and Colombia wants to make sure that they are still involved in world affairs.
