Commentator Ralph Peters says that the decision to certify Mexico as a "drug-fighting partner" divided opinion between the Office of National Drug Control Policy and the D-E-A. He says that while some analysts see Mexico as corrupt, yet redeemable...others say that sharing a border with Mexico as an immense liability, and that the government is hopelessly corrupted. Peters says that both views are essentially correct.
