Abstract:

Review of this decade lead to the conclusion that a congressional desire developed to do something--anything to reassert its proper place in the field of U.S. foreign policy formulation. for a number of reasons Latin America was on the margin of U.S. interests and became the target for new restrictions on arms transfers. However, the executive branch was as much of a target of the restrictions as was Latin America, if not more A second conclusion is that improvement is necessary in foreign policy consultation and development between the congress and the executive in order to enhance the effectiveness of United States foreign policy in face of current world conditions.
