27. I remember poppy bush
I remember iran-contra-drugs for guns and those drugs wound up on our streets. Tell me? What interest did that little deal serve? Not the american peoples' interest.

Remember Noreiga was taken down by the us because of drug money laundering. Of course, I believe he said he was working with our government.

I think we may have some shady people that work within our government, and I don't believe it is a good thing for the majority of americans. Remember in vietnam and the golden triangle? The drugs smuggled into our country by desecrating soldiers' bodies? Remember the AF woman soldier who worked in finance in afghanistan who thought something was not kosher? Found shot to death after joking with her family that if she's found dead, don't believe I was suicided? Was there government theft or was there dealing in opium?

There are people on this board that can't believe that over a deal with the scummiest death dealers (squads), that a faction of our government would put drugs on the street, and then those who buy the drugs wind up in those for profit prisons. But, it was exposed during the iran-contra, bcci (more money laundering?) scandal. Real investigative journalists lost their lives attempting to expose the truth. And, basically nothing was done about the corruption, which allowed some of the players in the government again under little boots. And, that is what happened to our country. By not judicially holding those accountable, we go down that slippery slope of corruption-looking forward without taking care of the past, just allows corruption to become the norm instead of the anomaly.
