Antropólogos indignados por el "Human Terrain System" del Pentágono para reclutar estudiantes graduados para servir en Irak y Afganistán


Escuche/Vea/Lea (en inglés)

Un nuevo programa del Pentágono de $40 millones de dólares llamado Human Terrain System (Sistema de Terreno Humano) ha comenzado a alistar reclutas licenciados en antropología para servir en el ejército. Antropólogos se oponen tajantemente a esta medida. Señalan las implicaciones éticas de renovar un programa como CORDS, impuesto durante la guerra de Vietnam, que acabó con las vidas de 26.000 sospechosos de pertenecer al Viet Cong. Hablamos con David Price, miembro fundador de Network of Concerned Anthropologists (Red de Antropólogos Conscientes).
