(I'm) struck by the similarity between the Vietnamese morass we were
in and the drug war. When Clark Clifford took over as the secretary of
defense, he asked the military what was their goal, and how did they
expect to win the war in Vietnam? What they told him dismayed him a
lot, because they said they really didn't have a plan other than just
to hold on and keep fighting the fight and see what would happen. I
believe this is the same thing that the drug war is doing, and I think
that it's going to come to the same end.
