In reading the Nov. 23 article, "Bush vows U.S. help against drug 
traffickers," two statements got my attention.First, Bush saying "that drug 
traffickers send their addictive and deadly products to the United States." 
At the same time, his administration supports the tobacco companies sending 
their addictive and deadly products throughout the world. This is the 
height of hypocrisy.

Bush also promises to give more aid to fight drug traffickers and 
guerrillas. If Bush is so concerned about drugs coming from Colombia, why 
isn't he doing more to stop the large amounts of drugs coming from Afghanistan?

Most people around the world see Bush's foreign policy for what it is, 
dishonest and dangerous. Too bad more people in this country didn't care 
more to learn the truth.
