US support of illegal drugs

leave a comment »

The US has been, in effect, supporting the growth of the opium industry. ThinkProgress notes:

92 percent: Proportion of the world’s opium that Afghanistan now produces. Bush administration officials acknowledge that until recently, “fighting drugs was considered a distraction from fighting terrorists.” The problem has become so severe that American officials now “hope that Afghanistan’s drug problem will someday be only as bad as that of Colombia.”

Read the article at the link. The Bush Administration is incompetent through and through.
