Honduras has become the newest front in the US war on drugs in Latin America. The US has provided financial support for both the police and the military there in spite of its deep corruption issues.

Furthermore, members of both institutions have been linked to a range of killings. Political dissidents, human rights workers and members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community have all been killed at alarming rates.

In May, a mission in the Moskitia region, which was led by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), left four innocent civilians killed and four others wounded. It was followed by two more incidents where a US DEA agent shot and killed an alleged drug trafficker. Local communities have demanded a thorough investigation but so far nothing has been done.

The US has a long and controversial history in Honduras. In the 1980s, the US built a base there and trained an elite Honduran military unit. That unit went on to carry out tortures, kidnappings and killings.

Who is responsible? What should be the role of the US in Honduras? And what happened that night in the Moskitia when a US raid ended up leaving innocent people dead?

Fault Lines travels to Honduras, the country with the highest homicide rate in the world, to find out.

A look at the life and work of Bill Hicks – a boundary-crossing comic who challenged nearly everything held sacred in contemporary America.  From the MLK and JFK assassinations to the bible, Hicks used his humor and sometimes dark satire to shed new light on American society.  Near the peak of his career, Bill Hicks was censored by the media bosses not for his use of foul language, but rather for his questioning of the government and media and their role in turning Americans into thoughtless, docile “consumers.”

If you like George Carlin, you’ll probably enjoy Bill Hicks!
