The U.S. protecting opium fields in Afghanistan, maintaining the addiction of Wall Street and the CIA to billions of dollars in profit.
more than 95 percent of the revenue generated by opium production is siphoned off to business syndicates, organized crime and banking and financial institutions.
In many instances, drug money is currently the only liquid investment capital, said Vienna-based UNODC Executive Director Antonio Maria Costa said last January. In the second half of 2008, liquidity was the banking systems main problem and hence liquid capital became an important factor.
Former Managing Director and board member of Wall Street investment bank Dillon Read, Catherine Austin Fitts, has long alleged that the banksters launder imponderable amounts of drug money. According to the Department of Justice, the US launders between $500 billion $1 trillion annually. I have little idea what percentage of that is narco dollars, but it is probably safe to assume that at least $100-200 billion relates to US drug import-exports and retail trade, writes Fitts.
The CIA has long secured the lucrative global drug market for Wall Street and for its own operational off-the-books purposes. The CIAs operational directorate, in other words thats their covert operations, para-military, dirty tricks — call it whatever you want — has for at least 40 years that we can document paid for a significant amount of its work through the sales of heroin and cocaine, Guerrilla News Network reported in an interview with Christopher Simpson.
The CIA has been in the drug running business since the 1950s. In Burma, Vietnam, Laos, Latin America, and Afghanistan, the CIA — also known as the Cocaine Import Agency — has remained at the forefront of the international illicit drug trade. The journalist Gary Webb and the San Jose Mercury News tied the CIA and the Contras to a large crack cocaine ring in Los Angeles. Webb paid with his life for revealing this information to the public.
5 years before 9/11 the CIA was under fire for importing cocaine to finance terrorist operations and mercenary armies. AP Story Wednesday, October 23, 1996 Arlen Specter, Bob Kerrey ….. U-S senators say a lack of public confidence may force Congress to take over a CIA investigation into the intelligence agency’s possible links to drug traffickers.
It follows a Senate Committee hearing into allegations that the American Government conspired with Nicaraguan Contras in the 1980’s to sell crack cocaine in Los Angeles and other U-S cities.
The hearings were prompted by a California newspaper report which alleged millions of dollars’ worth of drugs profits were funnelled to the CIA-run guerrilla army in Nicaragua.
The Senate Intelligence Committee hearings follow allegations that the Central Intelligence Agency played a major role in the crack-cocaine epidemic that started in Los Angeles in the eighties.
A California newspaper recently reported that a local drugs ring sold tons of cocaine to Los Angeles street gangs…and then funnelled millions of dollars in drug profits to the CIA run guerrilla army in Nicaragua.
Treason against “WE THE PEOPLE.”
Released on April 13, 1989, the Kerry Committee report concluded that members of the U.S. State Department “who provided support for the Contras were involved in drug trafficking…and elements of the Contras themselves knowingly received financial and material assistance from drug traffickers.”
In 1996 Gary Webb wrote a series of articles published in the San Jose Mercury News, which investigated Nicaraguans linked to the CIA-backed Contras who had allegedly smuggled cocaine into the U.S. which was then distributed as crack cocaine into Los Angeles and funneled profits to the Contras. According to Webb, the CIA was aware of the cocaine transactions and the large shipments of drugs into the U.S. by the Contra personnel and directly aided drug dealers to raise money for the Contras.
In 1996 CIA Director John M. Deutch went to Los Angeles to refute the allegations raised by the Gary Webb articles, and was famously confronted by former LAPD officer Michael Ruppert, who testified that he witnessed it occurring.
A ton of cocaine–pure cocaine, worth hundreds of millions–is smuggled into the United States. Sound familiar? Not the way this ton of cocaine got here, according to what the former head of the Drug Enforcement Administration told Mike Wallace. This drug shipment got here courtesy of what he calls drug trafficking by the CIA, in partnership with the Venezuelan national guard. While rumors of CIA involvement in drug trafficking have circulated for years, no one in the US government has ever before publicly charged the CIA with this kind of wrongdoing. It is not the kind of accusation anyone in government would make without thinking long and hard.
