Afghan leader's brother on CIA payroll: report
Karzai denied receiving CIA payments or playing any role in the booming opium trade that helps fund the Taliban-led insurgency.

"I don't know anyone under the name of the CIA," he told the newspaper. "I have never received any money from any organisation. I help, definitely. I help other Americans wherever I can. This is my duty as an Afghan."

I read an interesting take on this by a guy named William F. Engdahl, a German-based professor who analyses the world of oil and geopoliticvs. He says that ENCOURAGING heroin production is the goal:

The US military is in Afghanistan for two reasons. First to restore and control the world’s largest supply of opium for the world heroin markets and to use the drugs as a geopolitical weapon against opponents, especially Russia. That control of the Afghan drug market is essential for the liquidity of the bankrupt and corrupt Wall Street financial mafia.

I had never thought about it that way, but that's why I read Engdahl. Over the past four years, he's shown me numerous angles on deep, devious political ploys which make a lot of sense in the amoral world of the Kissinger class.

Think of it -- Russia has a heroin problem. Its people are beaten-down and depressed, but not everyone wants to be a vodka alky. So many turn to smack.

The Chechen Muslim ethnic group is behind a lot of organised crime in Russia. That helps supply money for its rebellion in the Caucasus. And if they have more heroin to sell, they can fight the Russians better and keep Putin off balance. So it makes perfect sense for the U.S. to let Karzai's brother and other warlords ramp up poppy production. Causes lots of human misery, but who cares about death and suffering when there's strategy to be considered?
