Let's see, Colombia is now home to the most aggressive herbicide spraying program in the world and the recipient of more U.S. military aid than any country outside the Middle East. The program hasn't worked, but enlarging it will do the trick? Spending $250 billion since 1980 has done almost nothing to affect the propensity of Americans to do drugs, but $1.7 billion for helicopters for Colombia will finally get it done? Sure.
