Miguel Tinker Salas
is the Arango Professor in Latin American History at Pomona College
, a political historian
and sometime commentator on U.S. foreign policy
in Latin America. On Tuesday, an FBI/LA County Sherrifs Office Joint Terrorism Task Force came calling
during Tinker Salas's office hours. "After identifying themselves, they proceeded to ask about my relation to Venezuela, the government, the community, my scholarship, my politics...After they departed, the three or four students who were outside my office informed me that these individuals had asked them about my background, my classes, what I taught, my politics and they even wrote down the cartoons that are on my door."
