The Politics of Heroin:
CIA Complicity in the Global Drug Trade
By Alfred W. McCoy
Despite the decades old rhetoric propping up our $50 billion a year "War on Drugs" the Federal government has once again become "close partners" with an opium growing group of psychopaths. From Vietnam's Golden Triangle to Afghanistan's Northern Alliance, the history of the CIA training, funding, arming and protecting terrorist Drug Lords is long and well documented. This book is for everybody who still believes that selling weapons to murderers is simply "one of the down sides to using 'unsavory characters' in our war on Terrorism."
