The DEA is triumphantly announcing the conclusion of Operation Long Whine (have they run out of good operation names?). Reports say they seized a bunch of coke, meth, and cash, and arrested 28 people.
DEA Administrator Karen P. Tandy said in a statement. “To decimate the drug trade, we are following drug money back to its sources, targeting the laundering networks and eliminating the profits that fuel drug trafficking gangs.”[…]
Of the 28 arrested, 19 were illegal Mexican immigrants, DEA said.
Another batch of drugs seized that will have no impact on availability, another bunch of small fish arrested, another trumpeted claim to be “decimating” the drug trade. Your tax dollars at work.
