I was previously a constitutional law and civil rights litigator and am now a journalist. I am the author of three New York Times bestselling books -- "How Would a Patriot Act" (a critique of Bush executive power theories), "Tragic Legacy" (documenting the Bush legacy), and With Liberty and Justice for Some (critiquing America's two-tiered justice system and the collapse of the rule of law for its political and financial elites). My fifth book - No Place to Hide: Edward Snowden, the NSA and the US Surveillance State - will be released on April 29, 2014 by Holt/Metropolitan.

The War on Drugs silently gets dumber and more invasive

Issues like Iraq and terrorism so overwhelm the limited attention of the media and the public that other critically important matters, such as illegal immigration and the nation's ongoing "War on Drugs," go all but ignored.

For that reason, it's always nice to have periodic reminders of the utter wastefulness, oppressiveness and naked stupidity which continue to fuel the Drug War.
