December 11, 2003 100 PDT (FTW) -- Ever wonder why the markets are doing so well? As FTW has documented for years, with almost $600 billion in drug
money being laundered through Wall Street and US banks, the markets should be improving. According to CNN, opium production in Afghanistan is 36 times
higher than at the end of Taliban rule. Not every US policy overseas is a failure. Hamid Karzai controls a few square blocks of Kabul. But
CIA-controlled warlords control the real estate that really matters.
Now that's interesting, I always wondered what other money forces are at work, as the money markets always seem to behave strangly at the best of
times. That 600 billion number is HUGE, and would have a big impact on the economy. Thanks for posting this info.
