Latin American Voices: Juan Gabriel Valdés


Chile's Permanent Representative to the UN Security Council (2000-03) and former head of the UN mission in Haiti shares his perspective on U.S. involvement in Iraq.

CLAS hosted a screening of the award-winning film “No End in Sight” on the UC Berkeley campus in April 2007, prior to its commercial release. “It’s a sober, revelatory, and absolutely vital film,” the New York Times said of Charles Ferguson’s documentary that scrutinizes U.S. policy decisions in Iraq. Drawing on surprisingly frank interviews with an impressive array of high-level government officials, military personnel, and journalists, Ferguson's film explores questions related to U.S. diplomacy, political and military oversight and the role of ideology in shaping policy.
