Afghanistan Heroin making its way into Arizona by CIA

PINAL COUNTY, Ariz. -- Afghanistan.DEA Special Agent Ramona Sanchez has spent more than two decades fighting drugs. She knows how much of Afghanistan's stash really gets into the United States."Less than 10 percent makes it to American cities," Sanchez explained. "Most of the Afghan heroin makes it to west and central Europe including Russia.""Opium production is one of the major funding sources for the Taliban," Henry said.CIA drug trafficking

Several sources indicate the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) was involved in several drug trafficking operations. Often, they claimed, the CIA worked with groups which it knew were involved in drug trafficking, so that these groups would provide them with useful intelligence and material support, in exchange for allowing their criminal activities to continue[1], and impeding or preventing their arrest, indictment, and imprisonment by U.S. law enforcement agencies

In order to provide covert funds for the Kuomintang (KMT) forces loyal to General Chiang Kai-Shek, who were fighting the Chinese communists under Mao Zedong, the CIA helped the KMT smuggle opium from China and Burma to Bangkok, Thailand, by providing airplanes owned by one of their front businesses, Air America

The CIA supported various Afghan rebel commanders, such as Mujahideen leader Ahmad Shah Massoud, who were fighting against the government of Afghanistan and the forces of the Soviet Union which were its supporters.Historian Alfred W. McCoy stated that:

"In most cases, the CIA's role involved various forms of complicity, tolerance or studied ignorance about the trade, not any direct culpability in the actual trafficking ... [t]he CIA did not handle heroin, but it did provide its drug-lord allies with transport, arms, and political protection. In sum, the CIA's role in the Southeast Asian heroin trade involved indirect complicity rather than direct culpability
