Automatic defense spending cuts will force the U.S. military to curtail training for Latin American allies who combat drug traffickers, the commander of U.S. Southern Command said Wednesday.
"A couple of squads of Marines to go to Guatemala, Honduras and teach them a little bit about [river operations] is huge, but the Marine Corps can't afford that this year. So that's the way of the budget," Marine Gen. John F. Kelly told Pentagon reporters.
In addition, the U.S. does not have enough naval and Coast Guard assets to stop drugs from entering its borders through illegal networks that run through Latin America, Gen. Kelly said.
