Pablo Escobar’s Son Reveals His Dad “Worked for the CIA Selling Cocaine” — Media Silent

Juan Pablo Escobar Henao, son of notorious Medellín cartel drug kingpin, Pablo Escobar, now says his father “worked for the CIA.”

EXCERPTS

“… Where his first book primarily covered Escobar, the man as a father, Marroquín’s second — which has just been released in Argentina — delves into the kingpin’s “international ties of corruption in which my father had an active participation, among them with the American CIA,” he said in a recent interview. . . .”

“… If the CIA trafficking cocaine into the United States sounds like some tin foil conspiracy theory, think again. Their alleged role in the drug trade was exposed in 1996 in an explosive investigative series “Dark Alliance” by Gary Webb for the San Jose Mercury News. The investigation, headed up by Webb revealed ties between the CIA, Nicaraguan Contras and the crack cocaine trade ravaging African-American communities. . . .” Read Complete Report

The War On Drugs In Mexico

Published on Mar 29, 2013

The HCLU’s video advocacy team travelled to Mexico to film the negative consequences of the war on drugs campaign that has been launched by President Felipe Calderon in 2006.

When they first entered the country the number of people killed in the war approached 40.000. Today, the death toll is approximately 60.000. With the help of a like-minded local NGO, Espolea, they interviewed several politicians, professionals and activists to find out why so many people had to die: were they the necessary costs of an unescapable but winnebale war, as many decision makers say, or the victims of a failed policy? Please watch and share our video to find out the answers!

Guatemala Drug War: 200 U.S. Marines Join Anti-Drug Effort

To me it seems totally insane to continue sending United States forces to other countries to fight in the so-called Drug War.  A “war” that has gone on for 40 years with no end in sight.  Actually we have more drugs, easily available than we did when this so-called war started.  Why can’t our government see that this is a educational and medical problem rather than a military one. . .

GUATEMALA CITY — A team of 200 U.S. Marines began patrolling Guatemala’s western coast this week in an unprecedented operation to beat drug traffickers in the Central America region, a U.S. military spokesman said Wednesday.

The Marines are deployed as part of Operation Martillo, a broader effort started last Jan. 15 to stop drug trafficking along the Central American coast. Focused exclusively on drug dealers in airplanes or boats, the U.S.-led operation involves troops or law enforcement agents from Belize, Britain, Canada, Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, France, Guatemala, Honduras, the Netherlands, Nicaragua, Panama and Spain. . . .

The Drug War Finds New Ways to Fail

The federal government’s effort to battle drug abuse has been a tragic and expensive failure. But of course, admitting that would make politicians, who regularly endorse it to sound tough, seem foolish and careless with taxpayer dollars. So the War on Drugs continues, while of necessity it slowly morphs into new forms of federal waste and unnecessary intrusion into people’s lives.

Militarized federal law enforcement just can’t cope with trendiness in recreational drug use. Cocaine use is so yesterday (the 1980s, to be exact) and is a declining problem. Even at the height of the crack cocaine epidemic in the mid-1980s, only 5.8 million people in a population of about 240 million were using the drug; the latestNational Survey on Drug Use and Health estimated that only 1.5 million in a population of 313 million use cocaine. In recent years, methamphetamine use has also declined. Lately, heroin use is up slightly but still affects a minuscule portion (less than .08%) of the American population. . . .

When does this madness stop.

Even an idiot can see that this so called war on drugs is a failure. 

Of course, those of us who have been watching this phoney war since it started have seen enough paper documentation, video surveillance, whispered audio and blundering government 3 letter agencies  to know that the same people keeping the failed drug war on full-speed-ahead are the exact same people making the big bucks off of these drugs. In more ways than one. (Check GO DEEPER at the end of this post . . EDITOR

Come on in to the”THEI Insider Virtual Theater” and get comfortable and watch the first full length documentary we are presenting in our on-site theater, “The Mena Connection”;  Bush, Clinton, Drugs, Money and Murder. It’s a good place to start when documenting our governments shady involvement in the War n Drugs.

It’s a long presentation but I promise you’ll not get bored… even if you think you know the story some of the information will surprise you. 

Like the skeptic always says: “Extraordinary claims must have extraordinary proof”. To put that kind of proof together takes time.  Best if viewed in full screen mode . . . EDITOR

Legal U.S. gun sales to Mexico arming cartels

Legal U.S. gun sales to Mexico arming cartels

By Sharyl Attkisson
(CBS News)  

Selling weapons to Mexico – where cartel violence is out of control – is controversial because so many guns fall into the wrong hands due to incompetence and corruption. The Mexican military recently reported nearly 9,000 police weapons “missing.”

 

Yet the U.S. has approved the sale of more guns to Mexico in recent years than ever before through a program called “direct commercial sales.” It’s a program that some say is worse than the highly-criticized “Fast and Furious” gunrunning scandal, where U.S. agents allowed thousands of weapons to pass from the U.S. to Mexican drug cartels.

 

CBS News investigative correspondent Sharyl Attkisson discovered that the official tracking all those guns sold through “direct commercial sales” leaves something to be desired.

 

One weapon – an AR-15-type semi-automatic rifle – tells the story. In 2006, this same kind of rifle – tracked by serial number – is legally sold by a U.S. manufacturer to the Mexican military.

 

Three years later – it’s found in a criminal stash in a region wracked by Mexican drug cartel violence. . . .continue

Mexico Drug War Update

by Bernd Debusmann Jr.

Mexican drug trafficking organizations make billions each year smuggling drugs into the United States, profiting enormously from the prohibitionist drug policies of the US government. Since Mexican president Felipe Calderon took office in December 2006 and called the armed forces into the fight against the so-called cartels, prohibition-related violence has killed around 40,000 people, including more than 15,000 last year. The increasing militarization of the drug war and the arrest or killing of dozens of high-profile drug traffickers have failed to stem the flow of drugs — or the violence — whatsoever. The Merida initiative, which provides $1.4 billion over three years for the US to assist the Mexican government with training, equipment and intelligence, has so far failed to make a difference. Here are a few of the latest developments in Mexico’s drug war: . . . continue
