Last quote by James Downie

Rep. Tom Marino (R-Pa.) withdrew his name from consideration to head the Office of National Drug Control Policy on Tuesday. He did so in the wake of a Washington Post-“60 Minutes” investigation revealing that he was the prime mover behind legislation weakening the Drug Enforcement Administration’s abilities to go after drug distributors even as deaths from prescription drug abuse continued to rise. That Marino dropped out is a welcome first step, but it is only a small one. The law he championed is just the latest reminder of how misguided and small-minded politicians’ response to the opioid crisis has been.feedback

This page is completely dedicated to what James Downie has to say. All of James Downie’s quotes are organized here by date and topic. The most recent quote attributed to James Downie came from an article called Trump’s instincts were right: The U.S. should leave Afghanistan: “Before becoming a presidential candidate, Donald Trump called for a “speedy withdrawal” of U.S. forces from Afghanistan. During the campaign, he backed off the “speedy” part of that phrase, but he still touted his opposition to “nation building.” On Monday night, though, Trump became the latest president to prolong what is already the longest war in American history, announcing that more U.S. forces would be deployed there even though “my original instinct was to pull out.” For once, Trump should have stuck with his instincts. The United States has no long-term strategy for winning the war, and there is no voter interest in the troop levels that would be required to win anyway. It’s past time to get out of Afghanistan.”.
