THE WHITE HOUSE
Office of the Press Secretary
STATEMENT BY THE PRESIDENT
I want to congratulate Attorney General Reno, Treasury Secretary Rubin, their crime fighting teams, and all law enforcement officers who worked to ensure the break-up of another notorious international drug ring through Operation Global S.E.A. Building on the success of this May's Operation Zorro II, the break-up of this drug network marks another milestone in our effort to cripple major international drug trafficking cartels.
I want to commend the unprecedented cooperation between frontline law enforcement agencies on the federal, state and local levels that brought down this narcotic network. My administration will continue to work with determination to track down and convict those who would threaten our communities and our children.
