    It has nothing to do with a war on "global terrorism". It is less about international OIL reserves and more about control of international narco-trafficking, as was the case in the Korean and Vietnam wars in which US imperialism sought to dominate the so-called "Golden Triangle".


    Bin Laden sought to modernize heroin production
    Tags: World, Society, Afghan drug threat


    The world’s number one terrorist, who was shot dead in Pakistan this week, sought to modernize Afghan drug production, chief of Russia’s anti-drug agency Viktor Ivanov announced Thursday.

    The leader of Al Qaeda purchased modern opium processing technologies to champion heroin trafficking. Despite bin Laden’s death, his criminal business is flourishing.

    About 820 tons of Afghan heroin are smuggled into Europe and Russia annually.

    Why Did Obama Move the War Front to Afghanistan?

    Afghanistan has re-emerged since the U.S.-led war as the world’s leading source country for opium and heroin — rapidly returning to levels of the 1990s, when it produced about 70 percent of the world’s illicit opium supply, a U.N. report says.

    The United Nations Office for Drug Control and Crime Prevention (UNODCCP) said opium producers in Afghanistan, primarily supplying countries in Southwest and Central Asia, Eastern and Western Europe, and throughout Africa, were moving again to recapture a heroin consumer base of 9 million abusers, two-thirds of all heroin users in the world.

    The U.N. report, issued Friday, said a half-million people are involved in Afghanistan’s trafficking chain and estimated an annual income at $25 billion, despite a ban on opium production put in place by Afghan President Hamid Karzai.

    Under the now-defunct Taliban regime, Afghanistan controlled the vast majority of heroin sales throughout the world, focusing on Europe while netting profits of $40 million a year, much of which went to al Qaeda terrorists who hid and trained in that country. Narcotics was the largest source of income in Afghanistan as a result of the Taliban’s decimation of the country’s economic infrastructure

    What about Pan Am 103?

    This is for the brother who keeps brining up Pan Am 103 in every discussion of Bin Ladin or Kadafi. This might help to explain why Kadafi is also being targeted for "killing" by the Obama administration and the CIA.

    On the day it was blown out of the sky, Pan Am 103 was carrying that team of CIA and FBI investigators, the CIA's Deputy Chief assigned to Beirut, and three Defense Intelligence officers, including McKee and Gannon, on their way to Washington to deliver a report on the CIA's role in heroin trafficking, and the impact on terrorist financing and the hostage crisis. In short, everyone with direct knowledge of CIA kickbacks from heroin trafficking died on Pan Am 103. A suitcase packed with $500,000 worth of heroin was found in the wreckage. It belonged to investigators, as proof of the corruption.

    The punch line was that the U.S. State Department issued an internal travel advisory, warning that government officials should get off that specific flight on that specific day, because Pan Am 103 was expected to get bombed. That's right, folks! The U.S. had prior knowledge of the attack.

    Unforgivably, nobody told Charles McKee or Matthew Gannon. But other military officials and diplomats got pulled off the flight--making room for a group of students from Syracuse University traveling stand by for the Christmas holidays.

    It was a monstrous act! But condemning Megrahi to cover up the CIA's role in heroin trafficking has struck many Lockerbie afficiandos as grossly unjust. Add the corruption of purchased testimony-- $4 million a pop-- and Megrahi's life sentence struck a nerve of obscenity.

    It struck Gadhaffi as grievously offensive, as well--The United Nations had forced Libya to fork over $2.7 billion in damages to the Lockerbie families, a rate of $10 million for every death. Once it became clear the U.S. paid two key witnesses $4 million each to commit perjury, spook gossip throughout the summer was rife that Gadhaffi had taken bold action to demand compensation from U.S. (and probably British) oil corporations operating in Libya. More than likely, Libya's demands for kick backs and compensation extended to other European oil conglomerates as well--particularly France and Italy--who are now spearheading attacks on Libya...

    More conspiracy theories? Well just research more into heroin production in Africa, in particular the Maghreb, and it might reveal why one of the major US trading partners is MOROCCO.

    The West African Connection

    In January 2010, a Drug Enforcement Administration official revealed that al Qaeda groups in West Africa were charging protection fees from cocaine drug-trafficking groups affiliated with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC). West African countries and criminal organizations have been used for years by the Colombians to transfer drugs to Europe. Al Qaeda involvement with drug trafficking organizations in South America has been documented since the early 1990s. More recently, terrorist group operatives have been linked to Mexican drug cartels, providing the terrorists easy access to the U.S.

    A serious point is made here!

    Although IMHO the dude been dead for a minute, and this "news" is just about improving the presidents ratings,
    the drug aspect is real!!!!

    No one in the press desires to drag up BCCI, and all the players involved in that! (The Octopus)

    Pakistan's economy is 60% heroin exports,

    so it is interesing to see the drug connection of the Veitnam war and the excuse to go into the opium fields of Laos and Cambodia

    and the fact as mentioned that opium growth in Afghanistan was banned by the Taliban until US troops laned in Sept 13 2001,

    makes one wonder who and what took over the drug trade from the 120 Cosa Nostra,
    internationaly busted a few months ago.

    The providing of the most notorious drug traffickers in the world, according to the evidence of Maxine Waters, Gary Webb, Michael Ruppert and Michael Levine,

    with a seasoned General as chief, marks a new low, in global imperialism,
    and the quest to control the worlds dope.

    The question is will they be attacking Chavez next?, you know the guy who has been giving the Colombian cartels so much hell

    GADDAFI'S OPPONENTS ARE DRUGS DEALERS?

    With CIA control of North Africa, cocaine can more easily reach Europe?

    Gaddafi's opponents are drugs dealers.

    They are involved in the trade in cocaine.

    (Coalition of Crusaders join with al Qaeda to oust Qaddafi and roll back Libyan Revolution - thanks to Brian for the link)

    Their partners may be the CIA?

    In 2007, al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri announced a merger between the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) and al Qaeda in the Islamic Mahgreb (AQIM)

    (LIBYA: 2009 COUNTRY REPORTS ON TERRORISM - Telegraph)

    In November 2010, Moroccan police detained 34 people with ties to al Qaeda in the Islamic Mahgreb (AQIM), attempting to move 1,300 pounds of cocaine through Morocco.

    Al Qaeda In West AfricaAugust 12, 2010: Counter-terrorism officials are increasingly concerned about Islamic terrorists joining forces with drug gangs. This is a problem in Afghanistan (where heroin producing gangs fund the Taliban) and Lebanon (where drug gangs work with Hezbollah). The latest point of contact is West Africa, where the African nation of Guinea-Bissau is cooperating with cocaine smugglers. Because of the South American drug gangs using Guinea-Bissau as part of their new smuggling route to Europe and the Middle East, West Africa is becoming a new source of income for al Qaeda, which guards the drug shipments moving north to European and Middle East markets.
    At first, the U.S. attacked the problem by putting sanctions on Guinea-Bissau. That has not stopped officials in Guinea-Bissau from working with the cocaine gangs, which pay well for that cooperation. Al Qaeda has been seen operating in Guinea-Bissau for several years now. Two years ago, two al Qaeda members were arrested and charged with the murder, in nearby Mauritania, of four French tourists. At the time, the United States suspected Qaeda involvement in cocaine trafficking in South America. Then al Qaeda operatives began showing up in Guinea-Bissau. Before long, evidence emerged that al Qaeda was there mainly to facilitate cocaine smuggling.

    Al-Qaeda, Drug Cartels and Chávez, united in drug trafficking

    Powerful cartels have made a fortune in the drug trade along the U.S.-Mexico border. Now, rogue dictators and Islamic terrorist groups are following their example.

    Al Qaeda, Hezbollah and Venezuelan strongman Hugo Chavez differ in many ways, but they share a common enemy — the United States. And according to U.S. officials, drugs help connect and fund the dangerous networks.

    West Africa is the center of their interests in the multi-billion dollar business. The region has become a transit point for cocaine bound for Europe.
    Al Qaeda and Hezbollah often provide security for the drugs after they arrive in Africa. But the illegal cargo originates in the Western Hemisphere.

    Former State Department official Roger Noriega told CBN News that Venezuela President Hugo Chavez is well aware that drug shipments are flowing from his territory. Noriega was the U.S. Ambassador to the Organization of American States under former President George W. Bush.

    “Virtually every flight that goes to West Africa today that is bearing cocaine or other drugs, is coming from Venezuela,” he said.

    Oil, Drugs, and Conflict: Transnational Issues in West Africa

    Jennifer Cooke, director of the CSIS Africa Program, and Emmanuel Bombande, director of the West African Network for Peacebuilding in Ghana, joined us for a discussion on transnational concerns in West Africa.

    Jennifer Cooke started the discussion by explaining how intrastate security issues in Africa contribute to regional instability. Given the interconnectedness of the sub-region, internal political discord in one country can impact stability across West Africa. Cooke then highlighted some of the common afflictions in the region that make peacebuilding so difficult, such as porous borders, weak institutions, poverty, and natural resources. Next, Cooke discussed some specific transnational concerns in West Africa, such as the rise of narcotics trafficking and Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, before offering a strategic vision for how to target these problems. A regional approach that looks for areas of common interest between the United States and African states is key to ensuring an enduring solution.

    Emmanuel Bombande began by discussing how the exclusion of Africans from the border demarcation process in West Africa in imperial times has made states more vulnerable to instability today. Comparing and contrasting the cases of Ghana, Kenya, Niger, and Cote d’Ivoire, Bombande then explained how the conduct of elections and power transitions in each state in West Africa are important determinants of the degree of stability both within states and in the overall region. Bombande also offered some hopeful notes. For example, the spread of mobile phones and the Internet in the region have helped to increase transparency in elections.
