The CIA is a Criminal Organization
Since the topic has come up I will address it before we return to the Kelowna Summer Jam. When we look at the history of the CIA’s ongoing involvement with drug trafficking, it becomes clear that the CIA is a criminal organization. This is something we have to face if we are going to address the gang war fueled by illicit drugs.
Most recently we have seen the results of Operation Fast and Furious where senior government agencies were caught selling guns to the Mexican cartel and bringing back tons of cocaine as payment. Operation Fast and Furious isn’t just an Obama thing. They did the exact same thing under the Bush administration and called it Operation Wide Receiver.
Prior to selling guns to the Mexican cartels and bringing tons of cocaine into the United States from Mexico, Mena Arkansas was the hub of the CIA’s drug trafficking network under the watchful eye of Governor Bill Clinton and President George Bush Sr.
The driving force behind this drug trafficking network was Oliver North and Iran contra. We know that Iran contra didn’t just involve selling weapons to Iran. Iran Contra involved shipping guns to the Contras in Nicaragua and bringing back tons of cocaine to fund that campaign.
We know that Noriega was involved. He was reportedly present with CIA Agents in Nicaragua to receive shipments of cocaine from Panama under Operation Watchtower. We all know what happened to Bush’s friend Noriega.
Gary Webb was the award winning investigative reporter who found the crack dealer in LA that was selling the CIA’s cocaine for the Contra rebels in Nicaragua. Judge Bonner was a former DEA agent who complained about the CIA bringing a ton of cocaine into Florida. The CIA adamantly lied and denied they did. Judge Bonner was persistent and finally went on 60 minutes and documented everything.
When confronted with the facts, the CIA finally admitted that they had done it but claimed it was the only occasion and it was a mistake. They were trying to catch drug traffickers when we know that was another lie. Just like in Operation Fast and Furious where they made no attempt to track the guns the CIA made no attempt to arrest any of the drug traffickers that brought the ton of cocaine into Florida for them.
I keep emphasizing, this isn’t a Republican versus Democrat debate. The Bush family and the Clinton family have been equally involved in all this. Now, Obama is clearly following suit. Obama’s Oliver North in his Operation Fast and Furious scandal worked with Clinton for years.
The question we need to ask is if the CIA has been such a huge player in drug trafficking for so many years, what else were they willing to do for their cause? Al Martin talked about the investment fraud he was trained to do to fund raise for Iran contra. Earl Brain was caught committing investment fraud in Canada to help fund raise for the October Surprise.
The question we need to ask is if the CIA has persistently lied about their involvement in drug trafficking, what else have they lied about? We know MI6 lied to the media about Iraq’s Weapons of Mass Destruction. The CIA didn’t lie to the BBC about the third tower falling before it actually fell. They just sent the press release out a few minutes too early. In essence, the Black Eyed Peas were right. “We have terrorists living right here in the USA. The big CIA. The Bloods and the Crips and the KKK.”
I was at the demonstration against George Bush coming to Surrey at the Sheraton. The 911 Truth movement was well represented. I remember seeing one guy from the 911 Truth Movement standing on the sidewalk with a megaphone aimed right into the lobby of the hotel shouting “911 was an inside job.” He was all by himself and a cop started walking up to him. We were all bracing ourselves thinking the cop was gonna pull a Rodney King and we were all gonna get into a throw down.
Then all of a sudden the cop patted the guy on the back, said good job and kept walking. It was hilarious. He was being sarcastic of course trying to humiliate him a bit but he let him have his say nonetheless. Now, I have to admit that hearing someone yell 911 was an inside job over and over again must have been irritating. But when you think about it, if you knew 911 was in inside job, wouldn’t that make you want to scream?
