Title: Crisis in Central America : a conversation with Vernon Walters
Moderator: Krogh, Peter F. (Peter Frederic)
Person Interviewed: Walters, Vernon A.
Abstract: Host Peter Krogh discusses the Central American situation with Vernon Walters, U.S. ambassador-at-large.
Description: Serving as Ambassador-at-large for President Reagan, and former translator, military attaché and Deputy Director of the CIA, Vernon Walters discusses an in issue that occupied his attention for four years. Walters describes the crisis in Central America not only as an attempt by the Soviet Union to gain resources and advantage in the region, but to discredit America in the eyes of its allies on the continent and in Europe. The questions that arise from the competition between two superpowers and its effect in Central America have broader implications. How can the U.S. keep allies stable and friendly? How can it keep people and governments from losing their faith in the reliability of the United States?
