End the Drug War - By Fulton T. Armstrong

This reviews the facts that we all know, but it is from a Washington "insider" who has been in all the "inside" decision-making centers. Fulton T. Armstrong has worked on Mexico, Central America, and counternarcotics at the National Security Council, National Intelligence Council, CIA, and the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. He is a senior fellow at American University's Center for Latin American and Latino Studies.

Foreign Policy: "All the evidence suggests that the efforts to crush Mexico's violent drug cartels have failed. Why won't the White House listen?

... we must launch a serious dialogue here on legalizing, or at least decriminalizing, the drugs. It's not a perfect solution, but it's better than no solution at all."
