World Affairs Brief, November 4, 2011
The CIA has always run large amounts of drugs into the United States in order to fund off budget black operations. This started during the Vietnam War when drugs were transported from the Iron Triangle in Thailand back to the US in military aircraft, often hidden inside body bags of dead soldiers and Marines coming home.
The DEA only fights drug cartels that compete with the CIA’s chosen cartels and actively protects CIA drug runners from Mexico that get caught in cross-border operations. Panama used to be the main corridor for the CIA back drug pipeline but things are shifting into Honduras.
This is from the boilingfrogspost.com: "Long an impoverished backwater in Central America, Honduras has become a main transit route for South American cocaine. Honduras is the number one offload point for traffickers to take cocaine through Mexico to the U.S.," said a U.S. law enforcement official who could not be quoted by name for security reasons. A U.S. State Department report released in March called Honduras "one of the primary landing points for South American cocaine. Almost half of the cocaine that reaches the United States is now offloaded somewhere along the country’s coast and heavily forested interior — a total of 20 to 25 tons each month, according to U.S. and Honduran estimates."
Yet, as in Afghanistan, the US does nothing to stop it, despite 3 new surveillance drone bases and millions in military support. Some of that support money goes to wealthy Hondurans who are kingpins in the drug trade. You can’t tell me they don’t know about it.
