When a Future President Apologizes for the War on Drugs
President Clinton today offered a long-overdue six-sentence apology to the former World War II Japanese internees "on behalf of all Americans." Some future president can dust off Clintons apology and read it to all the tens of millions damaged by the War on Drugs.
"We recognize the wrongs of the past and offer our profound regret to those who endured such grave injustice. We understand that our nation's actions were rooted in racial prejudice and wartime hysteria, and we must learn from the past and dedicate ourselves as a nation to renewing and strengthening equality, justice and freedom."
