Last week former President Bill Clinton proved that President Obama isn’t the only Progressive apologist-in-chief who isn’t afraid to blame the United States for the world’s problems.
According to an article on the Huffington Post, former President Clinton apologized to Mexico and blamed the U.S. for Mexico’s drug problems:
“Former President Bill Clinton apologized to Mexico during a speech there last week for a backfired U.S. war on drugs that has fueled spiraling violence.
“I wish you had no narco-trafficking, but it’s not really your fault,” Clinton told an audience of students and business leaders at the recent Laureate Summit on Youth and Productivity Summit. “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,” Clinton said.
“Clinton was referring to U.S. drug enforcement policy that began under his predecessors, Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush, who invested heavily in shutting down the Caribbean Sea as the favored trafficking route between the U.S. and South America and Central America. That effort pushed smuggling west, over land in Mexico.”
