TOPIC: A DEA Watch survey privately commissioned in 1998 found that 78 percent of DEA respondents stated that working for the DEA was not their first choice when seeking federal employment. And a majority of DEA Special Agent respondents stated that they had been rejected by one or more other federal law enforcement related jobs prior to being accepted by the DEA. Most DEA respondents stated that they were not pleased with those who held the highest DEA positions in DC or their local office, and that they were dissatisfied with the DEA's limitation toward fighting illegal drugs on a domestic level while all but ignoring aggressive fights inside the countries that supplied many of the illegal drugs sold on American streets.
