The purpose of this hearing is to examine threats to the security and stability of the Western hemisphere. Senator Coverdell made the following remarks in his opening statement: "The current administration has failed to engage the region on a consistent basis or to articulate and implement a coherent policy for the hemisphere. Most of our attention has been focused recently on the Balkans, the Middle East, China, North Korea, and rightly so. These places certainly demand our immediate attention, but we simply cannot afford to ignore serious developments in this hemisphere, in our own back yard." Statements, witnesses and submissions for the record include those of: Joseph Biden, Charles Wilhelm, Jesse Helms, and Paul Coverdell.
