Before 2000 Afghanistan was the worlds highest producer of Opium (which is used to make herorin; among other things), it is beleived to have contributed to 70% of the worlds opium; thats a huge chunk...

However after 2000 the Taliban government in power at that time, put a stop to it, stopped growing it made it completely illegal - everything was hunky dory (in relation to that anyway)...

Then the US came in destroyed that system of government and appointed a "democratically" elected president of Afghanistan... Guess what, all of a sudden they are producing 70% of the worlds Opium again...

Now to me that seems WAY suss, and its no secret that the Black Ops of today are not funded directly from the Pentagon, they get their money through... lets say, "other means"... That way there is little to no paper-trail that can be traced to government officials...

What are peoples opinion, contibution, discussion, similar events???

I got one name to run through this thread, go to google and look up a guy named Barry Seal, or if you get really bored look up "Air America"... Hell yes they funnel drug money to fund god knows what, that is pretty much a matter of public record.

How about Oliver North? He's a criminal if ever there was one.

This is old news though, it's in court transcripts and sworn testimony already (like since the mid 80's). The fact is that drugs and guns have always funded black ops.

As if the black budget wasn't big enough...

The Afghanistan debacle is the perfect example of why we shouldn't believe anything politicians tell us. Ever. We were best friends with the Taliban..until the denied us the right to build a pipeline across their land, and decided heroin exports were helping us too much.

Why Does George W. Bush Fly in Drug Smuggler Barry Seal's Airplane?

Lt. Col. Oliver North, USMC (Ret)

Documents related to the Iran/Contra affair:


A book that goes into great detail concerning US backed terrorism and the strategic and military objectives involved is... "The Culture of Terrorism by Noam Chomsky" ... I'm about a quarter of the way through it, but its thouroughly interesting. (It is pre-9/11 however)

Excerpts from the book:

You've only just worked this out??!

In Vietnam your army was hooked on drugs trafficked by CIA/Air America. Since then they've developed their systems to be much more sophisticated.

Gives them deniable budget - it's a big part of what they do.

The rest of the world has known this for years - you really need some better news sources!

Covert government by defense contractor means corrupt wars of conquest, government by dope dealer. When the world's traditional inebriative herbs become illegal commodities, they become worth as much as precious metal, precious metal that can be farmed. ... Illegal drugs, solely because of the artificial value given them by Prohibition, have become the basis of military power anywhere they can be grown and delivered in quantity. ... To this day American defense contractors are the biggest drug-money launderers in the world.
