- Former Attorney General Bill Barr called Thursday for a US crackdown on Mexican drug cartels, urging President Biden to use military force to respond to the poisoning of hundreds of thousands of Americans by fentanyl.
- “These narco-terrorist groups are more like ISIS than like the American mafia,” Barr, 72, wrote in a Wall Street Journal op-ed. “Merely designating the cartels as terrorist groups will do nothing by itself. The real question is whether we are willing to go after them as we would a terrorist group.”
- Barr, who served as America’s top law enforcement official under former Presidents George H.W. Bush and Donald Trump, said Congress should pass a joint resolution authorizing “select military capabilities” to beat back drug traffickers in the provinces of Sinaloa and Jalisco.
