Cables from the first term of Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa show how
the US sought to defend the interests of US companies in Ecuador, and
protect the position of foreign investors in general.

Moves against the power of transnational corporations by Correa's
government, first elected in 2006, were seen as attempts to increase
control over the economy, which the US government views as the domain of
private interests.
