On 31 July 2010, we were reminded that a Mexican drug trafficker used a CIA aircraft to smuggle drugs into the U.S. (Mexican Drug Cartel Leader Linked to CIA.)
The USA is not the only victim of the drugs trade.
The top six countries for drug abuse are reported to be Costa Rica, Mauritius, Russia, Afghanistan, Iran and Scotland. (Scotland is among world’s worst for drug abuse)
Scotland was recently named the worst in the world for drug-related crime. (Scotland is among world’s worst for drug abuse)
The Lockerbie Bombing was reportedly an attempt to destroy evidence of the CIA's heroin smuggling. (aangirfan: Lockerbie Evidence)
In July 2010, top Mexican drug cartel leader Ignacio “Nacho” Coronel was killed in a raid conducted by the Mexican military.
Coronel’s Yucatan operations included the transportation of narcotics from Colombia to be later smuggled into the United States.
On September of 2007, there was a plane crash in Yucatan.
When authorities arrived at the crash site, they discovered well over 3 tons of cocaine onboard the Gulfstream II aircraft. The narcotics reportedly belonged to the cartel under the local control of Nacho Coronel.
After further investigations into the origins of the aircraft’s markings and registration number (N987SA), it was discovered that the plane was used for CIA rendition flights.
According to Peter Dale Scott (Kyrgyzstan, America and the Global Drug Trade: Deep Forces, Coups ...), "The more than doubling of Afghan opium drug production since the U.S. invasion of 2001 merely replicates the massive drug increases in Burma, Thailand, and Laos between the late 1940s and the 1970s.
"These countries also only became major sources of supply in the international drug traffic as a result of CIA assistance to what would otherwise have been only local traffickers."
Sibel Edmonds has alleged that there is a network of drug-financed and intelligence-related terror activities stretching from Kyrgyzstan to Azerbaijan, Chechnya, and Turkey. (Kyrgyzstan, America and the Global Drug Trade: Deep Forces, Coups ...)
In August 1996, investigative journalist Gary Webb, in the San Jose Mercury, wrote the following about the CIA's involvement in the drug trade (Is the CIA behind Mexico's Bloody Drug War?):
"For the better part of a decade, a San Francisco Bay Area drug ring sold tons of cocaine to the Crips and Bloods street gangs of Los Angeles and funneled millions in drug profits to a Latin American guerrilla army run by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, a Mercury News investigation has found.
"This drug network opened the first pipeline between Colombia's cocaine cartels and the black neighborhoods of Los Angeles, a city now known as the "crack'' capital of the world. The cocaine that flooded in helped spark a crack explosion in urban America and provided the cash and connections needed for L.A.'s gangs to buy automatic weapons.
"It is one of the most bizarre alliances in modern history: the union of a U.S.-backed army attempting to overthrow a revolutionary socialist government and the Uzi-toting "gangstas'' of Compton and South-Central Los Angeles." ("America's 'crack' plague has roots in Nicaragua war", Gary Webb, San Jose Mercury News)
The MAFIA-FASCISTS appear to be pulling the strings within certain governments.
