Paul accuses CIA of drug trafficking…and was right

leave a comment »

Huffington Post released an article Friday about presidential candidate Ron Paul’s accusations that the CIA orchestrated drug trafficking as part of the Iran-Contra affair, and confirmed Paul’s accusations.

Since at least the 1940s, the American government has organized and supported insurgent armies for the purpose of overthrowing some presumably hostile foreign regime. In Italy, the United States helped pit the Corsican and Sicilian mobs against the Fascists and then the Communists. In China, it aided Chiang Kai-shek’s Kuomintang in its struggle against Mao Zedong’s communist forces. In Afghanistan, it once backed the mujahedeen in their fight against the Soviet Union and today backs warlords in opposition to the mujahedeen.

All of these and other U.S.-supported groups profited, or still profit, heavily from the drug trade.

Though the media regularly accuses Paul of being a conspiracy theorist, his allegations of the CIA appear “more or less accurate.”
