Here's a far bigger story.
The Presidents of Guatemala, Colombia, and Mexico have all spoken out for a reassessment of the "war on drugs."
That's the war they chose to talk about when they had their turn at the UN General Assembly.
The US war on drugs; not the threat of the mullahtocracy in Iran.
All three are allies in this war on drugs.
All three are lavishly "assisted" in this war by the American taxpayer. Assisted with money and weaponry and "advisors" on the ground.
And all three are utterly fed up.
If that's how the vassal states feel, imagine the sentiments in the rest of the world?
It's probably too much to hope that Obama will change this.
