ANALYSIS/OPINION:

LETTER TO THE EDITOR:

As Tony Blankley’s excellent analysis described the problems of today (“Without preparation or response,” Opinion, Tuesday), he ignored a simple solution to crippling the Taliban’s war machine: ending modern prohibition. According to a U.S. Army War College report, the sale of opium provides 70 percent of the Taliban’s operating budget. At the same time, the mess in Mexico would disappear like Al Capone’s gang, if only we had the courage to end the war on drugs.
