For Kurt Disser, the drill is distressingly the same. He drives up to the San Clemente checkpoint on Interstate 5. Sensing something suspicious, U.S. Border Patrol agents wave him aside for a thorough check. The agents search Disser and his car. And find nothing. This has gone on 15 times in the past 18 months, Disser said--and each time, nothing. No drugs. Nothing illegal. Disser, 27, is a diamond dealer who often drives between San Diego and Los Angeles.

Outgoing Atty. Gen. William P. Barr, reflecting on his tenure under President Bush, called Tuesday for eliminating the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy and for insisting on "full cooperation" of Latin American countries in the drug war. "I don't think it works to superimpose someone who doesn't have substantial operating resources over those agencies that do," he said in an interview. "You can't have a staff function serving as commander in chief" in fighting drugs.
