This is a bold, confident plane... ...and we started where narcotics crime was the worst: south Florida.” 08:09:08 “We used military radar & intelligence to detect drug traffickers, which, until we changed the law, could not be done. We increased efforts overseas to cut drugs off before they left other countries borders....drug-related arrests are up over 40 percent, the amount of marijuana seized is up about 80 percent, and the amount of cocaine seized has more than doubled.... To paraphrase Joe Louis, they can run but they can’t hide.” 08:10:37 “Previous administrations had drug statagies, but they didn’t have the structure to carry them out. We now have that structure. 08:10:57 “The mood toward drugs is changing in this country... ...we’ve taken down the surrender flag & run up the battle flag. And we are going to win the war on drugs.
