    McCaffrey/Rosenthal Tapes

    ``Legendary newspaperman A. M. Rosenthal was speaking freely. Im just saying this to you, he confided to White House drug czar Barry McCaffrey during a November 1996 telephone chat. Not quite.'' . . . ``I want to show the opposition to this. Where do we go from now? How would you describe this legislation in terms of impact on the drug war and so on? I don't want to put words in your mouth, but I'm trying to write a column in which I want to say that this thing has been done while the rest of us, too many of us, not including you, were asleep. ''
    propaganda campaign planned, propaganda themes discussed "just to you":
    Dope Fiends, Conversation with Barry McCaffrey (Harper's Magazine)
    (background: The Drug Czar and His Secret Tapes, Michael Isikoff, Newsweek, Sept. 4, 2000)

    the old, master propagandist, acting on that plan:
    November 15, 1996, On My Mind, A.M. Rosenthal, While We Slept

    ``The word "legalization" was not used. Legalizers and their financial quartermasters know Americans are 87 percent against legalization. So now they use camouflage phrases like "harm reduction" -- permitting drug abuse without penalty, the first step toward de facto legalization.
    One signer told me that she did indeed favor legalization but that in such campaigns you just don't use words that will upset the public. ''
