Oops ! Obama Offends DEA In Drug War Comments
WASHINGTON (Oct. 14) -- President Barack Obama insulted -- albeit inadvertently -- the folks at the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration today by mentioning the FBI instead of their agency in remarks about the war on drugs.
At a town hall meeting in Washington aired on MTV, the president told a group of young people that his administration is serious about "federal drug enforcement."
But, he added, "we have to figure out who is it we're going after because we've got limited resources. So decisions that are made by the Justice Department or FBI about prosecuting drug kingpins versus somebody with some small amount, those decisions are made based on how can we best enforce the laws that are on the books."

"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
-General Omar Bradley, United States Army
