12. If the NY Whore Times says...
that the Taliban is responsible, it must be a lie. After we invaded, and our pals the warlords were in charge, production skyrocketed. The Taliban may be looking for more funding now that Bin Laden has been dead for several years, but opium production in Afghanistan fits a pattern going back to the CIA in SE Asia in the 1950s and '60s, and then in Central and South America in the '70s and '80s. When the CIA comes to town, they pay their bills with drug money. See "The Politics Of Heroin" by Alfred McCoy, and "Dark Alliance" by Gary Webb.
