IS THIS WHAT’S REALLY DRIVING THE “RUSSIAN HACKER” NARRATIVE?
Also, Trump won for other reasons.
Anyway, one interesting theory holds that the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) is driving the “Russian hacker” narrative because it is worried Trump might end the nonsensical Afghan War.
Which would also end a steady stream of heroin production …
Wait, didn’t U.S. taxpayers spend billions of dollars to eradicate poppy production in Afghanistan?
Yes, they did … in fact this was the specific “agricultural” mission of S.C. First Gentleman Michael Haley (husband of future United Nations’ ambassador Nikki Haley) during his deployment to Afghanistan.
Needless to say, the job didn’t get done …
“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 report from the U.S. Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) revealed.
An estimated ninety percent of the heroin entering the United States comes from Afghanistan – which outlawed the drug’s production after the Taliban took over in 2000.
After fifteen years of American engagement, though, Afghan heroin production has never been higher.
U.S. president Barack Obama extended America’s military presence in Afghanistan through 2017 – and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton supported him in that decision.
Trump? He’s been largely silent on what Democrats once labeled the “right war.”
So … is something sinister lurking beneath the surface of the Afghan conflict? And is Trump’s refusal to sign off on the ongoing occupation one of the reasons he’s being targeted by America’s intelligence community?
“It is nothing new that the CIA has used profits from the drug trade to fund its global meddling,” one source familiar with the situation told us. “What organization has the ships and planes to transport these drugs?”
Not only that, what organization has the ability to make sure these drugs reach their destination safely?
Surely that’s not really happening, though … right?
“Why is (customs) limiting itself to ten inspectors to the port in South Carolina, which is known to be biggest import point of heroin and other drugs into this country?” our source asked. “They can only inspect a small fraction of the containers coming into the port.”
“And why has the Justice Department refused to prosecute drug distribution groups to the dismay of the DEA?” the source added.
That’s a good question … we thought the federal government was all about fighting a “War on Drugs,” not enabling the drug trade.
Could it be they are actually just trying to take out their competition?
This website has written repeatedly on the worsening heroin epidemic in America – which is being fueled by demand created from prescription opiates.
We know government’s subservience to Big Pharma is fueling the demand in this case … but is the government also running the supply?
Scary to contemplate, isn’t it?
