The CIA’s policy of looking the other way wasn’t just for the benefit of big business or crushing revolutionary movements abroad.Domestically, drugs and drug lords were used to quell black activist movements that challenged the status quo.

Unfortunatly this is not new. Durring the cold the CIA imported 60% of the heroin sold on US streets to fund the Taliban to fight the Russians durring their occupation of Afghanistan. Yes, the Taliban. Look into it.

Have you ever read about the Mercury News reporter named Gary Webb. You should read the articles he wrote in the 90's about the CIA and their drug running. He was killed for it.

In other Obvious headlines, a bear #s in the woods and the sky is blue.

This has been well known for a long time. Not just speculated. Like, proven, exposed, and mostly covered up. It was called Iran Contra affair.

yes sir, still happening, a few years ago, a plane used by the CIA crashed with over 3 tons of cocain. Thats like $70 mil worth if you sold by the kilo at normal price(and thats without cutting it first, and they always end up cutting pure stuff like that)

Yes. I know. How could they think this would stop the problem? And not see it just added fuel to the problem. As well as to the collateral effect? Just a question. That's all The blindness of those that see!

hmmmm, fact check.
I could have sworn they funded the Mujaheddin.
The Muja is not the Taliban even though they
have some common agendas.
Or maybe I'm wrong.

Ohhh! Now that you say it, you could be right on that. But the point is that the CIA sold heroin to fund terrorism, basicly.

No problem! I read the series of articles a few years back. This is one of the few examples of what journalism should be. I hope you take the time to read the series of articles, they are quite intriguing.
