    The “War on Drugs” was actually a political tool to crush leftist protesters and black people, a former Nixon White House adviser admitted in a decades-old interview published Tuesday.

    John Ehrlichman, who served as President Richard Nixon’s domestic policy chief, laid bare the sinister use of his boss’ controversial policy in a 1994 interview with journalist Dan Baum that the writer revisited in a new article for Harper’s magazine.

    “You want to know what this was really all about,” Ehrlichman, who died in 1999, said in the interview after Baum asked him about Nixon’s harsh anti-drug policies.

    “The Nixon campaign in 1968, and the Nixon White House after that, had two enemies: the antiwar left and black people. You understand what I’m saying,” Ehrlichman continued.

    Makes me think of the women that started to come out last year with Cosby allegations decades later.

    This Baum character simply is reposting for Harper's what he posted for the Washington Post back in 1996

    Smoke and Mirrors
    The War on Drugs and the Politics of Failure
    By Dan Baum

    Chapter One: A Question of Discrimination

    A Practical Matter: 1969
    [President Nixon] emphasized that you have to face the fact that the whole problem is really the blacks. The key is to devise a system that recognizes this while not appearing to. -- H. R. Haldeman to his diary

    Read the rest below:

    So why the "bump" 20 years later?
    And Adam Edelman (Daily News and Business News USA; must be the same) was right behind in bumping his story, posting a full blown article on his article within the same day on "two" news sites.

    And maybe I might be missing something, but lipstick ally was aware of this article a day before it claims to have been posted???

    The original article from dailynews has a post date and time of March 23, 2016, 8:38 AM
    But it's not that serious, nothing to see here.

    Yawns again
