11/11/11 – John Glaser – The Scott Horton Show

by | Nov 11, 2011 | Interviews

John Glaser, Assistant Editor at Antiwar.com, discusses the US-influenced drug war in Mexico; how harsh drug crackdowns lead to more hardened criminals taking over the enterprise; the DEA’s five commando-style militarized squads of drug enforcers operating in much of Central America; why the War on Drugs hasn’t reduced drug use in the US; why it makes sense to allow legal businesses to manufacture and sell drugs, and treat drug abuse as a health issue; how the US plays one Mexican drug cartel against another, spiking murder rates; and the sweetheart deals for connected bigwigs who can transport cocaine with impunity (like in Honduras).
