U.S. Military cuts role in drug war

This LA Times article by Josh Meyer (which has been getting wide circulation) appears to be mostly drug warrior-supplied crying about the need for more military support in interdiction (although that has never been shown to actually, you know, accomplish anything).
If anything, the article is an interesting read to show just how impossible it is to stop the flow of drugs, regardless of your efforts. And when you’ve got unlimited profits involved, plus an unlimited supply of small fish willing to take a chance for a pay-off, the suppliers find the Defense Department’s 22% “detection rate” (likely a much higher-than-actual number) merely a highly acceptable tariff.
