Bill Clinton: U.S. to Blame for Mexican Drug Violence

Speaking in Mexico, former President Bill Clinton pinned the cause of escalating narco-trafficking violence on a curious culprit: the United States.

The “war on drugs” has been a staple of U.S. policy for decades. But Clinton, speaking at the Youth and Productivity Summit in Mexico, unleashed a stinging soliloquy on a policy he helped execute:

“I wish you had no narco-trafficking, but it’s not really your fault. Basically, we did too good of a job of taking the transportation out of the air and water, and so we ran it over land. I apologize for that.”
