We can't stop anything at border

Wealthy Afghan land owners who grow opium poppies are receiving subsidies from our government in the form of foreign aid. Most of the illegal narcotics will pass across our borders.

With our surveillance aircraft, spy satellites, CIA and military in that country, plus domestic wiretapping, the Coast Guard, Border Patrol, FBI, DEA and a very well-funded Department of Homeland Security, there is no excuse for our government not tracking and intercepting most of these drugs before they reach this country.

If this administration can't stop all of this dope from crossing our borders, how can we expect them to intercept something even more deadly?

TERRY DUGGAN
