CIA "Manages" Drug Trade, Mexican Official Says

CIA "Manages" Drug Trade, Mexican Official Says

The Central Intelligence Agency’s involvement in drug trafficking is back in the media spotlight after a spokesman for the violence-plagued Mexican state of Chihuahua became the latest high-profile individual to accuse the CIA, which has been linked to narcotics trafficking for decades, of ongoing efforts to “manage the drug trade.” The infamous American spy agency refused to comment.

In a recent interview, Chihuahua state spokesman Guillermo Terrazas Villanueva told Al Jazeera that the CIA and other international “security” outfits "don't fight drug traffickers." Instead, Villanueva argued, they try to control and manage the illegal drug market for their own benefit.

"It's like pest control companies, they only control," Villanueva told the Qatar-based media outlet last month at his office in Juarez. "If you finish off the pests, you are out of a job. If they finish the drug business, they finish their jobs."

break the CIA into 1,000 pieces

... and scatter them to the wind.The CIA is NOT HELPING defend this country - they are a front for opium and cocaine trafficking writ large. The CIA was deeply involved in the MURDER of 2,977 Americans on September 11th, 2001. CIA front-companies invested in options in the week BEFORE September 11th:


FTW, October 9, 2001 - Although uniformly ignored by the mainstream U.S. media, there is abundant and clear evidence that a number of transactions in financial markets indicated specific (criminal) foreknowledge of the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. In the case of at least one of these trades -- which has left a $2.5 million prize unclaimed -- the firm used to place the "put options" on United Airlines stock was, until 1998, managed by the man who is now in the number three Executive Director position at the Central Intelligence Agency. Until 1997 A.B. "Buzzy" Krongard had been Chairman of the investment bank A.B. Brown. A.B. Brown was acquired by Banker's Trust in 1997. Krongard then became, as part of the merger, Vice Chairman of Banker's Trust-AB Brown, one of 20 major U.S. banks named by Senator Carl Levin this year as being connected to money laundering. Krongard's last position at Banker's Trust (BT) was to oversee "private client relations". In this capacity he had direct hands-on relations with some of the wealthiest people in the world in a kind of specialized banking operation that has been identified by the U.S. Senate and other investigators as being closely connected to the laundering of drug money.

Krongard (re?) joined the CIA in 1998 as counsel to CIA Director George Tenet. He was promoted to CIA Executive Director by President Bush in March of this year { 2001 }. BT was acquired by Deutsche Bank in 1999. The combined firm is the single largest bank in Europe. And, as we shall see, Deutsche Bank played several key roles in events connected to the September 11 attacks.

Wonder if we elect Romney or Obama...

if they will end the drug war? Wonder if either has the juevos to stand up to CIA corruption?

Is there anyone else running that will?

Yes, Ron Paul, he is the only one that would end the Fed and I

am assuming he would also want to end the CIA.


Are You Serious?

Sure, and either of these two phoneys will end the Fed, end the illegal wars, end the illegals coming here, end political corruption, free all non violent prisoners, keep their oath to defend the constitution....should I go on?
And please, do not use the word "we" when saying if we elect Romney or Obomba.
We are going to elect Ron Paul for President!
