Drug use has been linked to terrorism before. This time they intended to use that as means of an attack.
WASHINGTON — Usama bin Laden tried to buy a massive amount of coc aine, spike it with poison and sell it in the United States, hoping to kill thousands of Americans one year after the Sept. 11 attacks, The Post has learned

The evil plot failed when the Colombian drug lords bin Laden approached decided it would be bad for their business — and, possibly, for their own health, according to law-enforcement sources familiar with the Drug Enforcement Administration's probe of the aborted transaction.

Although the drug lords would have reaped millions of dollars in profits by selling the coc aine to bin Laden, they knew that if his plan succeeded it might effectively destroy the market for their coke in America for years, sources said.

In April of this year, Afghan tribal leader Hajji Bashir Noorzai (search), who was one of the most wanted drug dealers in the world and previously had been identified as bin Laden's major heroin supplier, was busted in New York City on federal criminal charges.

Drugs and terror go hand in hand it seems. With the recent article of how Jihad is actually carried out, it makes a person wonder what these terrorist are fighting for.
