How Can We Stop Drug Trafficking When It’s The CIA that’s Running the Show

Historically, illegal drugs were being used to destroy sovereign countries, and by now the Philippines’ war on drugs is a regular headline by CIA funded journalists and media networks, and a constant object for criticism of the Soros’ Open Society Foundation funded pseudo-non-government organizations, for being brutal and violative of human rights.

    According to Howard Zinn in “A People’s History of the United States,” the Philippines was one of the spoils of battle in the Spanish-American War. In that fiasco, American troops slaughtered every male over ten years old. Later, President Teddy Roosevelt (whose family was heavily involved in the so-called “China (opium) trade,”) worked through an American missionary to control the narcotics trade worldwide, an effort which later culminated in the Harrison Narcotics Act of 1914.

    Then, there was Prohibition in the 1920s, which was another government control tactic, a throwback to the Whiskey Tax imposed by George Washington and Alexander Hamilton, which resulted in the Whiskey Rebellion in 1794. George Washington happened to be a large whiskey distiller at the time. It was his primary source of revenue.

    In short, the CIA is only the latest player in this drug control game.

  2. You make some excellent points, Katherine. The CiA is only the latest player, but, in my view, the most aggressive. The CIA wasn’t founded until 1947 and were involved with Chang Kei Sheiki in smuggling heroin out of Southeast Asia in less than 12 months.
