American Samizdat

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration has removed all its agents from Bolivia, complying with orders by President Evo Morales, officials said.

The DEA began pulling agents out several weeks ago and the last agents left Thursday, the Los Angeles Times reported. The development comes even as Bolivian officials say coca cultivation and cocaine processing are growing.
I'm very curious as to how to interpret the phrase "several weeks ago," insofar as there's been a wee bit of a transition between administrations and all.
