The CIA is the Biggest Drug Dealer on the Planet
August 14, 2012 |
For most Americans, this may sound crazy but it’s absolutely true and has been true for decades.
While the U.S. federal government has been waging a phony and hypocritical “war on drugs” as an easy way to increase repression in inner cities and confiscate millions of dollars in private assets through unconstitutional forfeiture laws in order to fund its burgeoning police state, it has also been an active participant in the illegal drug trade, using public resources to bring heroin and cocaine into American inner cities at least since the 1960’s.
Sound like paranoia? In fact, this information has been confirmed by scholars and researchers throughout the past three decades. Any honest scholar that has researched the issue will tell you that this is the truth, but you will find very little information about it in the mainstream mass media. The most recent scandal involved the Central Intelligence Agency selling crack cocaine in South Central Los Angeles in order to fund the U.S. covert war against the people of Nicaragua.
While the CIA’s heavy involvement in the drug trade, and especially the crack cocaine trade, has been well documented by scholars such as Dr. Peter Dale Scott at least since the Iran-Contra hearings in the 1980s, the mass media are only now beginning to take notice. And even when they do take notice, most of the sheep-like journalists and anchorpeople continue to parrot the absurd government line in contradiction to the blatant facts, which are available to anyone who reads beyond the corporate summaries of government press releases. On NPR, for example, a reporter commented that since the story wasn’t picked up by the New York Times, it must be false. Another reporter on FOX News said “there has been no direct evidence, repeat, no direct evidence, linking the CIA to the crack trade in South Central.”
These people are either complete idiots or just flat out liars. The evidence is overwhelming and will convince anyone other than an utter fool.
Fast forward to Fast and Furious. Not only was the US government caught red handed giving military grade weapons to a Mexican drug cartel(s), the Justice Department and Eric Holder attempted to cover it up, thereby compounding the scandal.
According to a high-ranking Mexican drug cartel operative, who is currently in U.S. custody, there are some things that the American people are not being told about Fast and Furious. We obviously knew something was not being told behind the scenes because of Barack Obama issuing executive privilege and Holder being in contempt of Congress for failing to comply. But this makes even the sleepiest of people perk up their ears and pay attention.
Jesus Vicente Zambada-Niebla, known as the Sinaloa Cartel’s “logistics coordinator,” has brought allegations that the gunwalking operation had nothing to do with tracking guns and everything to do with supplying them.
Although it is believed that the CIA has been involved with the drug trade at least since the days of Jimmy Carter who funded and armed the Afghan Mujuhadeen in poppy field rich Afghanistan, many other US presidents and officials have been implicated in supporting the CIA and its drug business.
An independent group of researchers in Arkansas are charging that Governor Bill Clinton is covering up an airport used by the CIA and major cocaine smugglers in a remote corner of the Ozark mountains. According to Deborah Robinson of In These Times, the Inter mountain Regional Airport in Mena,Arkansas continues to be the hub of operations for people like assassinated cocaine kingpin Barry Seal as well as government intelligence operations linked to arms and drug smuggling.
In the 1980’s, the Mena airport became one of the world’s largest aircraft refurbishing centers, providing services to planes from many countries.Researchers claim that the largest consumers of aircraft refurbishing services are drug smugglers and intelligence agencies involved in covert activities.In fact, residents of Mena, Arkansas, have told reporters that former marine Lt. Colonel Oliver North was a frequent visitor during the 1980’s. Eugene Hasenfus, a pilot who was shot down in a Contra supply plane over Nicaragua in 1986, was also seen in town renting cargo vehicles.
A federal Grand Jury looking into activities at the Mena airport refused to hand down any indictments after drug running charges were made public.
Of course, it’s no surprise that George Herbert Walker Bush was involved in the CIA’s drug trade because Bush is a former CIA chief with long and deep ties to the agency and its clandestine operations. Much has been written about the CIA, Bush and drugs which includes several books and investigative journalist pieces.
