Mexico's War on Drugs

Hosted by
Mexico's President Fox has issued a moving evocation for citizens to join him in eliminating drug traffic in their country. Once an impossible challenge because of judicial and law-enforcement institutions that were puppets to a corrupt government, Fox is determined to rid Mexico of its brutal drug cartels. Such a difficult challenge affords a variety of opinions about his chance of success. We'll hear from a reporter covering the US-Mexico border, specialists in US-Mexican relations, and a former US drug enforcement officer.
