The U.S. is losing the war on drugs in Afghanistan, with more than $7 billion invested in counternarcotics efforts since the fall of the Taliban yet poppy-growing at an all-time high.
The Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction issued a report today detailing how the opium suppliers are flourishing thanks to better farm technology and more arable land, defying wipeouts from agricultural disease and interdiction programs to produce bumper crops.

Stuffing pockets the old fashioned way!
Every time you watch a Democrat political ad you’re probably seeing a portion where that $7B went.
with more than $7 billion invested in counternarcotics efforts since the fall of the Taliban yet poppy-growing at an all-time high.
Out and Out LIE, we went there specifically to increase the production and exportation of OPIUM, Afghanistan produces over 90% of the World’s Opium, in the last 10 years, Heroin use in the US has Exploded (try google). How do you suppose All that Opium left Afghanistan while our Military controlled it’s Borders??
You cannot have a War on Drugs without Drugs
Hmmm. Biden’s kid? Oh. That was coke. Maybe he’ll soon graduate to some black tar heroin. Law license? Intact.
Just protecting the morphine supply?
Obama is now in charge and protecting his supply.
I was thinking maybe Agent Orange or napalm.
“I love the smell of napalm in the morning.”
So Dubya was in on it too?
Government at all levels have been playing both sides from the beginning, see the “Kerry Commission” Senator Bob Kerry, also see William French Smith attorney general under Reagan, that begged CONGRESS for and received an Exemption to Import and Sell Cocaine to finance their war in Nicaragua, See Barry Seal and Mena Arkansas with Bill Clinton and Bush Senior, See Oliver North and Costa Rica.... The List goes on Forever. See Eric Holder and The Cartels in Mexico. Look what happened to Noriega when he tried to extort Bush Senior with Documents proving government involvement in the Drug Trade,
Without Direct Government Knowledge and Permission, NO DRUG MONEY could ever be Laundered from Mexico, No Drugs could be brought here from the same.
Every single last one of the “Too Big to Fail” banks have been directly implicated in laundering money for the cartels and paid paltry fines as a result.Hell recently during congressional hearings we learned that the ATF laundered Millions of Dollars of Drug Money while they were selling them US Weapons, see Fast and Furious......
Yeah, Daddy Bush, with main partner Bill Clinton, and ‘friends’ had quite the Cocaine ‘Distribution Plant’ (LOL!!!), run out of Mena in the 1980’s didn’t they? (And maybe 1/10th of 1% of all Americans might even know about that very successful operation.)
Aint life a bitch when your old enough to have learned how to read instead of proper condom placement.
(And maybe 1/10th of 1% of all Americans might even know about that very successful operation.)
I doubt it is that high, but I am one of them. There is much much more for those that like to, or even know how to read. ANd you won’t see it on any Television.
