[ Note: RT did give me the last minute on this report, taking a look at the question of Afghan heroin coming into the US. This was a taped interview of three questions, which the producers and editors then decide what parts to use in their presentation.
This is a complicated story, as it has evolved over fifteen years, and five minutes would have been better than three. The “too hot to touch” topic in all this is how some of the military contractors running the Afghan war supply flights were in the perfect position to get into flying drugs out, and our sources confirmed this in spades.
We did not have to dig to find out, just scratch. The general “cover” explanation we were told was that nothing could be done to ever really stop drug trafficking, and that leaving all the profits in the hands of the criminal networks would be a national security risk, as they could then afford to do very big and bad things.
So it was better for government-related entities to quietly put the huge amounts of money to a better use – doing very big and bad things. These same people flying in huge amounts of cash, literally on forklift pallets, to run the Afghan economy, saw that it was a wild, wild West situation with lax controls, and looked for their own opportunities.
The missing billions in cash and equipment stories have been widely published, but not the drug running. VT readers have no problem grasping any of this, as you have lived with us all through this sad affair.
The money was being spread around to buy political and prosecution protection, via providing a never-ending conveyor belt of cash into the hands of political entities who would “play ball” with the Deep State crowd. Citizens United became a key part of this conspiracy, as it opened the front door for this drug money to flow into PACs via foreign corporations.
The Supreme Court could not have been so stupid as to not realize what was going on; and we spanked ourselves at VT for underestimating the flexibility of these judges in dealing with the Deep State crowd.
RT cherry-picked that main point to do the ending of their report, as no one in Western media would dare air such material. Of course, VT has been publishing this aspect of the Afghan war for years, which has contributed to our continuing blackout in Western media due to our not understanding that we are supposed to self-censor over such sensitive material.
We have been disappointed in the public non response on our reporting over this hugely important item. The public, and even those inside the Intel and military community, are jaded to the point where they accept this kind of stuff going on, as they feel there is nothing anyone can really do about it. We have not been infected with that disease, and will try to remain so… JD ]
