Recently, I was having a discussion with some friends about the war on 
terror and the so-called war on drugs. We agreed that as a result of 9/11, 
America probably has the most secure air and water in the world. This 
realization led me to ask the question: If we are so secure, how is it that 
drugs continue to flow into this country? Is the government looking the 
other way?

Do the terrorists have knowledge of the dope route? I'm sure they do, since 
President Bush said that people who buy drugs are supporting the terrorists.

If we do not know how drugs are entering this country, how could we 
possibly know if other chemicals are not entering?
