America’s Failed “War on Drugs” & CIA Drug-Running Make Business BOOM for the Prison-Industrial Complex

This article was inspired by my correspondence, “Discussing America’s Fallacious War on Drugs, and its Connection to the Prison Industrial Complex“…

Our soldiers are guarding poppy fields in Afghanistan. It’s no secret. Back in 2006, a friend of mine in the Army sent me pictures of British troops doing that exact same thing. Here is one of them:

And, opium isn’t the only drug our government is dealing in! Remember that CIA plane that went down over the Yucatan two years ago carrying 3.2 TONS OF COCAINE!? Allow me to refresh your memory:

We should rename the CIA  from “Central Intelligence Agency” to “Cocaine Importation Agency”!

While some would call Ahmed Karzai, brother of Aghanistan President Hamid Karzai, a drug-smuggling Opium Kingpin, our CIA prefers the term “employee.”

Rene C.Wow, Ken was telling me the other day that our soldiers are guarding opium fields in Afghan. Yeah fighting a war on terrorism my ass. Our Government is so corrupt and money hungry. I don’t see that changing the greed is widespread though out.

Matthew Hoh Becomes First U.S. Official Yet to Resign in Protest to Afghan War!

I originally posted the following information and commentary onto my Facebook wall…

Former Foreign Service Employee and Marine, Matthew Hoh

First U.S. Official Yet Hands in Resignation in Protest to Afghan War!
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/10/26/AR2009102603394.html?hpid=topnews&sid=ST2009102603447

(Karen DeYoungWashington Post) – When Matthew Hoh joined the Foreign Service early this year, he was exactly the kind of smart civil-military hybrid the administration was looking for to help expand its development efforts in Afghanistan.

A former Marine Corps captain with combat experience in Iraq, Hoh had also served in uniform at the Pentagon, and as a civilian in Iraq and at the State Department. By July, he was the senior U.S. civilian in Zabul province, a Taliban hotbed.

But last month, in a move that has sent ripples all the way to the White House, Hoh, 36, became the first U.S. official known to resign in protest over the Afghan war, which he had come to believe simply fueled the insurgency.

(Read entire article here…)

My Commentary: Now, this is CHANGE I can BELIEVE IN! There’s nothing like an honest-to-goodness change of heart! Especially, after some good ol’-fashioned first-hand experience!

According to the September 2009 resignation letter of Foreign Service Officer, former Marine captain, & former civilian Department of Defense employee Matthew Hoh, he has “lost understanding of and confidence in the strategic purposes of the United States’ presence in Afghanistan,” having “doubts and reservations about our current strategy and planned future strategy.” His resignation “is based not upon how we are pursuing this war, but why and to what end.” He cannot “see the value or the worth in continued U.S. casualties or expenditures or resources in support of the Afghan government in what is, truly, a 35-year old civil war.”

Seeing the current Afghani administration as corrupt – seated by lawless drug lords and war criminals, bound by sweet-heart deals, and wrought with election fraud – Matthew feels that “our support for this kind of government, coupled with a misunderstanding of the insurgency’s true nature, reminds [him] horribly of our involvement with South Vietnam; an unpopular and corrupt government we backed at the expense of our Nation’s own internal peace, against an insurgency whose nationalism we arrogantly and ignorantly mistook as a rival to our own Cold War ideology.” Well put, Matthew! And, well done!

Opium Kingpin Ahmed Karzai, Brother of Afghan President, is CIA Employee

Afghan Opium Kingpin On CIA Payroll:

(Paul Joseph WatsonPrisonPlanet.com) – A bombshell article in today’s edition of the New York Times lifts the lid on how the brother of Afghan President Hamid Karzai, a suspected kingpin of the country’s booming opium trade, has been on the CIA payroll for the past eight years. However, the article serves as little more than a whitewash because it fails to address the fact that one of the primary reasons behind the 2001 invasion of Afghanistan was the agenda to reinstate the Golden Crescent drug trade.

“The agency pays (Ahmed Wali) Karzai for a variety of services, including helping to recruit an Afghan paramilitary force that operates at the C.I.A.’s direction in and around the southern city of Kandahar, Mr. Karzai’s home,” reports the Times.

An October 2008 report from the Times reveals how, after security forces discovered a huge tractor-trailer full of heroin outside Kandahar in 2004, “Before long, the commander, Habibullah Jan, received a telephone call from Ahmed Wali Karzai, the brother of President Hamid Karzai, asking him to release the vehicle and the drugs.”

In 2006, following the discovery of another cache of heroin, “United States investigators told other American officials that they had discovered links between the drug shipment and a bodyguard believed to be an intermediary for Ahmed Wali Karzai.”

When Fighting Monsters, Be Careful Not to Become One!

The following correspondence originally took place upon my Facebook wall…

Keith M.: You Will Love This One!

"My next door neighbor wants to BAN all GUNS! Their house is NOT ARMED! Out of RESPECT for their opinions, I promise NOT to use MY GUNS to PROTECT THEM."

“My next door neighbor wants to BAN all GUNS! Their house is NOT ARMED! Out of RESPECT for their opinions, I promise NOT to use MY GUNS to PROTECT THEM.”

Rayn: Wow! While it is somewhat amusing, and the message is clever, I don’t really think it’s too cool. This guy is pretty much violating his neighbor’s privacy, and turning him into a target. It is as if he is tampering with the outcome of an event in order to make his so-called “righteous” viewpoint the correct one…very snaky. I have noticed that the vast majority of people who truly hold gun rights dear do so because of their respect for human life, and desire to protect it – meaning, themselves, their family, and beyond, against criminals. They own their weapon because of their desire not to see violence. This man’s neighbor isn’t a criminal, so why is he targeting him for victimization? Are his viewpoints about gun control too “criminal” for this man to tolerate? Why doesn’t he use intelligent discussion and debate to address the issue at hand? Has that somehow failed? I doubt it.

I don’t know the background of this apparent family fued, but unless this man’s neighbor specifically publicly targeted him about his ownership of firearms, this seems like it isn’t the right thing to do. The criminals are the enemy, so why give them information, or ammunition, for attack! What’s next? Will he hire someone to dress up and rob his neighbor, so he can chase them off with his trusty weapon, and say, “I told you so,” converting his neighbor over to the “right side.” Let’s just hope this guy isn’t truly fanatical, or his neighbor is in a lot of trouble!

As Nietschze wisely said, “Beware that, when fighting monsters, you yourself do not become a monster.”

We would all do well to “love thy neighbor”!
