FTAA progress report. (Insider Report).
For further evidence of just how advanced FTAA plans are, there is an elaborate official website of the "FTAA process" maintained by "the Tripartite Committee, consisting of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), the Organization of American States (OAS) and the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC)." Under the conditions of TPA as given to President Bush by Congress, it is likely that an FTAA agreement will be presented to Congress sometime in 2004 or 2005 for a simple up or down vote with no amendments possible. Since the FTAA is being modeled after the EU, and since the EU has already morphed from a free trade area into a supranational government, an extraordinary educational campaign to inform voters of the FTAA threat will be required in the next couple of years to preserve U.S. national sovereignty.
