Governments, mostly thru corporations and military’s, have always lead the world in drug trafficking ! Do You recall, the The British East India company and their opium wars, with China ? From the opium wars, till to today’s Afghanistan serving as the world’s number one heroin hub providing well over 90% of the World’s heroin under the boots of tens of thousands of US-led NATO forces. In the background of this the United Nations has advised that opium cultivation in Afghanistan has increased for the third year in a row . The report said poppy cultivation was highest in regions where US-led troops had been stationed over the past years, which is mostly in the southern parts. Last year Afghanistan supplied about 75 percent of the global supply of heroin, a derivative of opium, which is expected to jump to 90 percent this year due to the increased cultivation.
Nations Largest Cocaine Smuggler Revealed: The DEA
Published on Jan 15, 2014
For decades, it has been rumored the United States government was secretly sponsoring the smuggling of cocaine into the country. Federal officials have long denied such speculation, pointing out the billions of dollars spent intercepting drugs. Newly released documents, and testimony from Justice Department and DEA officials now show the stories of government running cocaine are true.
An investigation conducted in Mexico found the American government allowed that country’s largest drug cartel, Sinaloa, to operate without fear of persecution. That groups is estimated to be responsible for 80 percent of the cocaine coming into the country through Chicago. In exchange, the leaders of Sinaloa provided the DEA information on rival gangs.
The drug cartel working with the federal government is run by . He is considered to be the world’s most powerful drug trafficker. In addition to Chicago, his group also maintains cocaine operations in several major cities around the country.
Written statements were provided to a U.S. District Court in Chicago, confirming the alliance between the DEA and Mexico’s largest cocaine cartel. The written testimony, combined with other evidence, shows DEA officials met with leaders of the Sinaloa cartel more than 50 times between 2000 and 2012. This would mean DEA-authorized drug smuggling goes back to at least the beginning of the George W. Bush administration, and continued for year under Barack Obama.
One of the groups leaders, Vincente Zambada-Niebla, claims the American government also sent military-grade weapons to Sinoloa. According to the latest revelations, it was these weapons which were part of the Fast-and-Furious scandal. Automatic firearms which disappeared during that operation, led by Eric Holder, were used to kill U.S. Border agents.
This latest evidence and testimony points toward a massive scandal, involving both Republican and Democratic administrations. At the very least, this provides the best evidence so far that the Federal government was sponsoring the smuggling of billions of dollars of cocaine into the United States. Worse still, weapons purchased for the U.S. military may have been sent to the cartel, and used to kill American agents.
Below Abby Martin ask the tough questions ! Why are drones not used to identify drug trafficking routes. A great question to pose to the government, if it weren’t trafficking in drugs. Another question being asked is, how much does the pharmaceutical industry actually pay government officials to control it’s competition, by way of the war on drugs. She serves to expose the corrupt nature of government through the drug industry.
 Killing Snowden, Why 70% of Americans are Pill-Poppers, Funding the Taliban
Abby Martin remarks on comments made by anonymous Pentagon and NSA officials expressing their desire to see Edward Snowden dead. Abby then calls attention to the epidemic of prescription drug addiction in the US, speaking with filmmakers Sasha Knezev and Dr. Gregory Smith about their documentary ‘American Addict’ exploring the roots and effects of America’s deadly addiction to prescription narcotics. Abby then calls out Obama’s long awaited speech regarding NSA surveillance, dissecting aspects of the speech that suggest no real change to global surveillance policies. BTS wraps up the show with an interview with Douglas Wissing, journalist and author of ‘Funding the Enemy’ discussing the deteriorating relationship between Washington and Kabul, and the US governments mismanagement of taxpayer dollars that has led to both direct and indirect funding of the Taliban in Afghanistan.
Mini Iran Contra
The TACA case. How the government allowed arms and drug trades into Central America and intentionally looked the other way rather than prosecuting the mafia. This action in the 30s made Sam Carolla rich and set the stage for the infamous Marcello brothers and other in the New Orleans branch of the Mafia in the 50s and 60s. Who many believe were involved in the Kennedy assassinations.
CONFIRMED: The DEA Struck A Deal With Mexico’s Most Notorious Drug Cartel
We now know that the US government entered into a formal alliance with the Sinaloa (Mexico) drug cartel between 2000 and 2012.
We also know that this is tied to the “Fast and Furious” scandal in which US gun stores were ordered to sell guns via dodgy or non-existent paperwork to Mexican nationals.
We’ve known for years that most of the guns went to the Sinaloa cartel. We now know from US DEA agents that there was a formal agreement to allow the Sinaloa to take drugs into the US and ship money out.
But did you really think the buck stops there? Give me a break. For over a year now I have followed the HSBC and LIBOR banking scandals and guess what? US Banks have been laundering money into Mexico from the get-go! Note which gang the major US banks were laundering money for: the Sinaloa.
Do you really think this is a coincidence?
The US allied with the Sinaloa against other cartels. As best we can tell, and this isn’t proven yet but it makes sense, the main “enemy cartel” was the Zetas, which started out as an elite anti-cartel unit of the Mexican military given special SWAT-level training and equipment by the US before they went rogue.
Report: ‘Fast and Furious’ gun turns up at Mexico shootout scene
A gun from the failed U.S. operation known as “Fast and Furious” turned up at the scene of a shootout between Mexican authorities and alleged cartel gunmen last month, according to CNN.
U.S. officials told CNN at least one AK-47-style gun that could be traced back to the failed gun-walking scheme was found at the scene.
The shootout on Dec. 18 left five alleged cartel members dead in Puerto Peñasco, a popular tourist site in Mexico.
The now-defunct Fast and Furious program began in 2009 and was run by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). Agents allowed low-level weapons purchasers to cross the Mexican border in an attempt to expose trafficking routes used by Mexican cartels. But the agency ultimately lost track of some weapons, including two found at the scene of the killing of a border patrol agent in 2010.
The ATF acknowledged that weapons from the operation would likely continue to turn up at crime scenes.
