Michael Haley Didn’t Get The Job Done, Pt. II

By FITSNEWS  ||  One of the most important myths this website shreds on a daily basis is the one about American soldiers “fighting for our freedoms.”  These days, nothing could be further from the truth.

Take Michael Haley – a “diversity officer” with the S.C. National Guard.  Haley spent his 2013 in Afghanistan – a military deployment breathlessly promoted by his wife, S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley.

So what was the governor’s “hero hubby” doing in Afghanistan?  Well, he sure as hell wasn’t fighting the Taliban.  In fact he wasn’t fighting anyone.  Haley was part of an irrigation effort aimed at “providing for the sustainability of Afghanistan’s water resources,” specifically “strengthening the capacity of the provincial level agriculture ministry’s ability to develop, execute, monitor and assess water management projects.”

Wait … what?  Yeah … this program (which reportedly cost U.S. taxpayers $10 billion) was all about trying to suppress poppy production (i.e. opium production).  It was a “War on Drugs,” in other words – an effort to force Afghan farmers to plant other crops.

Did it work?  Um, no.  Not even a little bit.

Now there’s fresh data from the U.S. Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) showing just how colossally this effort continues to fail.

“Despite spending over $7 billion to combat opium poppy cultivation and to develop the Afghan government’s counternarcotics capacity, opium poppy cultivation levels in Afghanistan hit an all-time high in 2013,” a new SIGAR report reveals.

Actually the figure quoted by the SIGAR report is $7.6 billion – although it’s not immediately clear whether this is part of (or in addition to) the $10 billion figure referenced earlier.

Either way it’s a ton of money that has been totally wasted … not unlike the $4-6 trillion America has spent on its wars in Iraq and Afghanistan since 2001.

“Afghan farmers grew an unprecedented 209,000 hectares of opium poppy in 2013, surpassing the previous peak of 193,000 hectares in 2007,” the report continued.  “With deteriorating security in many parts of rural Afghanistan and low levels of eradication of poppy fields, further increases in cultivation are likely in 2014.”

Great … job well done, guys.

Of course according to SIGAR, it’s not the fault of the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) – or of fine upstanding “heroes” like Michael Haley.

“The failure to reduce poppy cultivation and increase eradication is due to the lack of Afghan government support for the effort,” the report concluded.


Last time we checked, the failure was due to the free market explicitly rejecting these totalitarian efforts to force it into a counter-profitable direction.

Seriously … it’s ridiculous we’re fighting an anti-free market “War on Drugs” here in America, but do we really need to be fighting one in Afghanistan too?

Because both are expensive, abject failures …

Oh well, at least Nikki Haley got a ton of positive press out of the deal … that makes it all worth it, right?

Boz told us yesterday he was a former “coke head” and Will apparently has a history of domestic abuse and yet they slander those that serve our country and the public while spewing falsehoods for political gain.

What a pair.

Buz Martin October 23, 2014 at 10:02 am

See a post by me on this wall about Will’s criticism of Michael Haley’s service to this nation, pogo. I don’t like to see anyone’s military service disrespected in this way. Don’t know how I could make it any clearer.

Deo Vindice SC October 23, 2014 at 11:34 am

His service is used as a political ploy for the queens re-election, get it now ?

Buz Martin October 24, 2014 at 9:13 am

Maybe so. But just as another example, all the political mileage JFK and John McCain got from their military service does not negate and important fact: They served. That’s my whole point. Politics be damned. Honor those who served.

Buz Martin October 23, 2014 at 10:08 am

Never was a full-on “coke head.” I indulged from time to time. That’s all. But I stopped before I got to the point where stopping was difficult. It wasn’t. It was just a choice I made, because I saw the posibility for total self-destruction. How could I not? Friends were dying behind that shit, and behind smack and crank (meth, now called “tweek”).

But why do I bother to explain these things to you, pogo? Facts mean zip to you. You and GT are sick peas in a bad pod.

Robert October 23, 2014 at 8:30 am

Easy Sic, failures in our Mid East policies are not any soldiers fault. And while I’m not a Haley supporter, and I don’t know what his duties were, his ass was in the sand, gun in hand or not. I won’t ridicule anyone that went there. It’s not like he went to a travel agent and paid for vacation there.

Jackie Chiles October 23, 2014 at 8:59 am

I think Sic is more attacking the cult of military service where anyone who ever did anything in the military is considered some sort of hero and anything they do is considered a success.

idcydm October 23, 2014 at 9:10 am

I disagree, Sic has disdain for the Military.

CorruptionInColumbia October 23, 2014 at 10:03 am

We need a military, of that there is no doubt. We need a military to protect our country and our borders. Stories like this highlight the MASSIVE waste in our current military and how much room there is to trim that fat and still leave what should be its mission, protection of our nation and its borders, intact. It is nothing short of shameful that veterans have been sent to war which our politicians had no intention of letting them win (pretty much every conflict since WWII) and they struggle to get help from an underfunded and inept VA for their injuries, both mental and physical, while this kind of crap goes on, and on, and on.

I applaud Fits for having the guts to expose this kind of useless, shameful, waste. Can you imagine if this kind of money were put into well-deserved benefits for our veterans instead of wasted on garbage feel-good projects like this? How much more sense it would all make under such circumstances is off the chart.

Tazmaniac October 23, 2014 at 10:18 am

Well damn it what are you going to do when you can’t even get the Libs to join the Peace Corp?! TeeHee

idcydm October 23, 2014 at 10:30 am

You know my friend, I do believe I know better than you about the waste in the Military, I’ve lived it. Civilians control everything the Military does from bogus operations to spending and that is as it should be. We in uniform salute say Yes Sir and try to complete the mission in spite of the Civilians. Do you really think those same Civilians would take money saved and increase benefits to veterans?

Applaud Fits all you want, as would I, if he did not attack those that wear the uniform. Sorry my friend, Sic has a disdain for those that have and are wearing the uniform.

CorruptionInColumbia October 23, 2014 at 10:40 am

I do understand and appreciate you perspective on that issue. I do feel if anyone (I think we all do to an extent) has a right to an opinion on this kind of thing, it is people like you who served, and have been and done.

In fairness though, some institutions and their practices are deserving of criticism as are occasionally some who worked in those institutions. FWIW, I am critical of useless and often detrimental and harmful operations of some LE agencies. A good “for instance” (harmful more than just useless) would be the cops who went door-to-door in the New Orleans area after hurricane Katrina, brutalizing residents in some cases and unlawfully confiscating firearms. I feel no kinship to those thugs and would not have felt any sorrow if some of them had been removed from the gene pool for their wrongful actions.

I use this particularly harsh criticism just to underscore that I would not take offense from anyone who criticized those persons, whether they were a cop or not, for their actions in that particular incident.

idcydm October 23, 2014 at 10:56 am

“I use this particularly harsh criticism just to underscore that I would not take offense from anyone who criticized those persons,”…those persons not all of LE…Do you think Michael Haley and the others on that mission deserve to be criticized personally for doing what the CinC sent them to do?

I too have criticized those in the Military that have been thugs and will continue to do so but I will not use a broad brush as Sic does. Sic has disdain for the Military.

CorruptionInColumbia October 23, 2014 at 11:01 am

Agreed. I do see his military service being played up more than a little as part of her political opportunism, but your point is well taken, Sir!

That being said, it is kinda like when Waylon Jennings sung “This Outlaw Shit is Gettin Out of Hand”. I’m kind of feeling the same way about the military,cops,firemen,EMS, etc.

As retired military myself, i sure don’t consider myself a hero. I know some cops that are anything BUT heroes and EMT’s who almost too damn fat to get out of the ambulance.

For me the final straw was when “The Military Channel” was retitled to the “AHC” (American Hero Channel) and The History Channel is anything but about history.

It’s almost becoming jingoistic.

Mike at the Beach October 23, 2014 at 2:16 pm

Sorry bro, it’s rare that I do this but I have to disagree with you on this one. Will has a weird hard-on for the military, and it infects his thinking in some equally weird ways. No one (especially vets) likes the incessant fawning over every single vet, but that’s not the FITS-centric problem. The FITS-centric worldview says that because Will, TR, and Ron Paul disagree with US foreign policy, it follows that service in the military is a dishonorable endeavor. I swear I believe that if this was 1970, Will would be at the airport holding up a “Baby Killer!” sign and spitting on GI’s.

The FITS ilk just can’t seem to grasp the deeper (and important) philosophical underpinnings of military service, like the fact that these folks volunteer to protect the country in advance- they don’t get to pick and choose missions, and no one calls them for advice. If the mission is whacked out (like Iraq was), you go and do the best you can. If some rogue nation-state attacks us for real tomorrow, you do the same. Plus, service in a strong military provides the deterrent under which we all live peacefully every day. The TR / FITS crowd doesn’t get serving something bigger than themselves, or sacrificing for the greater good. That actually cuts against true, hard corps libertarian (every-man-for-himself) idealism.

OK…rant complete. Sorry…

Very interesting. Anyone even minimally aware knows the CIA has been importing drugs on CIA and air force planes and in other ways during and since the Vietnam war. Check out the “Golden Triangle” and the Mena, Arkansas airport drug connection during the Clinton years or google Gary Webb to see just how pervasive this corruption is. The Taliban was actually succeeding in reducing the poppy production before we stepped in and restored the CIA profits that heroin provides for our shadow government. The war on drugs is a fraud that allows the CIA to make outsized profits on this “illegal” substance. Make something people want illegal, then monopolize all the profits for those above the law….

Interestingly enough. The Taliban shut down Poppy Production and the Drug trade in Afghanistan before they were removed. It’s against their religious beliefs, they said.

Researchers are trying to get other, genetically altered, organisms to produce opiates because of the risk in having so much legal production of poppies in one place (New Zealand) where a disease or bug outbreak or weather disaster may halt too much of the world’s production of this medically essential crop.
Why don’t we just buy the opium from Afghanistan and divert it to medicine. I’ll bet the price the farmers get is pretty low.
