    Since 1994, British legislation gives its secret agents the right to break the law, as long as they have the permission of a “Secretary of State”.
    This has enabled the British intelligence services to participate in a wide range of illegal activity, including murder, torture, terrorism, drug trafficking, arms sales and money laundering.

    While the first subsection limits the criminal acts to “outside the British Islands”, the 9th subsection shows that also criminal acts “in the British Islands” are allowed...

    Section 7 of the Intelligence Services Act 1994 says:
    (1) If, apart from this section, a person would be liable in the United Kingdom for any act done outside the British Islands, he shall not be so liable if the act is one which is authorised to be done by virtue of an authorisation given by the secretary of state under this section.
    (9)For the purposes of this section the reference in subsection (1) to an act done outside the British Islands includes a reference to any act which—
    (a)is done in the British Islands; but
    (b)is or is intended to be done in relation to apparatus that is believed to be outside the British Islands, or in relation to anything appearing to originate from such apparatus;

    The Dutch legislation seems even more "flexible" in allowing secret agents to commit crimes.

    Until 2018, according to art. 21 the intelligence agencies “Wet op de Inlichtingen- en Veiligheidsdiensten”, the AIVD and MIVD can engage in any criminal activity and infiltrate in any criminal organisation (in 2017 for some reason art. 21 was deleted and than a similar article was made in art. 41)…
    The services are authorised to:
    a. employ natural persons, whether or not undercover of an assumed identity or capacity, which are the responsibility of an intelligence service:
    1 °. to collect information about persons and organisations that may be of importance to an intelligence service;
    2 °. to promote or take measures to protect the interests of an intelligence service.
    b. establish and deploy legal entities to support operational activities.
    The natural person, referred to in the first paragraph, under a, may also be instructed by the intelligence service to carry out actions that result in cooperation with a criminal offense or commit a criminal offense. An instruction as referred to in the first sentence is only given if the proper execution performance of the task of the intelligence service or the safety of the natural person involved so requires.
    By or pursuant to a general Order in Council, on the recommendation of the relevant Ministers and Our Minister of Security and Justice jointly, further rules may be laid down with regard to:
    a. the conditions under which and the cases in which, in order to execute an instruction by a natural person as referred to in the first paragraph, part a, actions may be carried out which may result in cooperation in the commission of a criminal offense, or commit a criminal offense;
    (link was deleted):

    Here's art. 41 of the Wet op de Inlichtingen- en Veiligheidsdiensten (Law for Information and Security Services) - in Dutch:

    Rodney Stich - Defrauding America

    Rodney Stich in his 1993 book describes that the CIA really is organized crime.
    Stich based his book mainly on intelligence sources. While I do not believe that all of his sources are reliable, because he has used many sources most of the shocking claims should stand up in a court of law…

    Stich and other whistleblowers targeted
    Some parts of the book describe how Rodney Stich was an FAA investigator and became a whistleblower trying to expose gross negligence causing plane crashes. Stich describes how he was targeted by the (federal) government to cover this up. Stich was falsely charged and imprisoned by a corrupt legal system.
    Stich’s millions were taken from him and he was imprisoned by using the corrupt legal system and Chapter 11 confiscation, using a sham divorce judgment (Stich had been divorced for more than 20 years).
    The ACLU refused to help Stich against the many civil right violations. The Friedman law firm that got Stich stripped of his rights was a key member of the San Francisco ACLU.

    Stich describes that he wasn’t the only one. Many people who threatened to expose criminal activities of federal officials, conveniently ended up dead. Over 300 CIA and DEA personnel who tried to expose corrupt CIA activities were locked up.
    For example Presidential candidate Lyndon LaRouche was framed and arrested for mail fraud after the Justice Department had bankrupted his company so it could not repay loans.

    One of Stich’s main sources is former high-ranking deep-cover CIA operative, Gunther Russbacher, who he met when he was locked up at the Federal Correctional Center at Dublin, California.
    Russbacher had flown to Central America for the CIA, accompanied by trustee Charles Duck (who was involved in taking Stich’s millions); attorneys of the law firms of Friedman, Sloan and Ross; Goldberg, Stinnett and McDonald (who seized and looted his conjunction with Duck and Judge Robert Jones); and Murray and Murray (who took over after Duck was sent to prison).

    Vietnam heroin and killing POWs
    An officer from the army's Criminal Investigation Division uncovered a large-scale heroin smuggling scheme in which the corpses of dead GIs flying back to the US were cut open, gutted, and filled with sacks of heroin. Some 50 pounds of heroin were stuffed per body.

    Even more shocking is that Robert L. Freeman's group was ordered to kill American prisoners of war (POWs) if they couldn’t be rescued.
    See the following Top Secret cable, dated 21 January 1964, confirming that 40 American POWs had been “TERMINATED”. Copies were sent to President Lyndon Johnson; presidential security advisor McGeorge Bundy; CIA director John McCone.

    CIA drugs for arms pipelines
    Examples of the many CIA proprietary airlines that were involved in arms and/or drugs trafficking include : Civil Air Transport (CAT); Air America; Southern Air Transport; Global International Airways; St. Lucia Airways; Intermountain Airways; Summit Aviation; Arrow Airlines; Apex Aviation at Spirit of St. Louis Airport; Evergreen International Airlines; Race Aviation; Ransom Aircraft: Resorts International; Flying Tiger Line; Response Air; Seagreen Air; Skyways Aviation; International Air Tours; Capital Airlines; Air Asia; Rich Mountain Aviation; Southwest Airlines.

    Bill Tyree said that former high-ranking CIA operative Ted Shackley, was deeply involved in Operation Watchtower and other CIA-related drug operations. During the Vietnam War, Shackley helped manage the CIA drug operations in the Golden Triangle, and was the executive director of the Phoenix Program.
    Russell Bowen described that INTERKREDIT, with offices in Medellin, Amsterdam, and Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, was one of the CIA proprietaries operated by Shackley.

    In January 1976, Crittenden Air Transport (CAT) made its first flight to Beijing, China, delivering arms and bringing back a load of heroin, for which CAT received $100,000 from the Shamrock Corporation. The drugs from that flight were unloaded at Bangkok, Thailand, where Southern Air Transport, picked it up for delivery at Los Angeles.
    Stephen Crittenden described that he delivered either arms or drugs, including heroin from Southeast Asia or cocaine and marijuana from Latin America for the CIA. Crittenden used the airport at Mena, Arkansas. He described that Arkansas state police was guarding the operations.
    Crittenden made several flights into Moscow during the Cold War, including one flight in 1976 where M-16 rifles were off-loaded. For the return flight he brought Russian AK 47s to San Salvador in El Salvador. At San Salvador the unloading arms was coordinated by John Forsyth, who worked for James Pennington, the CIA's liaison to Anastasio Somoza, head of the Nicaraguan government.
    Crittenden described one strange flight in which 40 pretty blonde women were flown to Hong Kong as "presents" from the CIA to the military leaders of Communist China. The women were never heard from again.

    According to several CIA and DEA sources, the Mossad was also a major player in the CIA drug trafficking in Latin America, which included Michael "Freddy" Harari and David Kimche. The Mossad worked hand-in-hand with the CIA and drug traffickers (including the Medellin and Cali Cartels).
    In December 1981, the CIA intentionally created a crisis situation, the kidnapping of drug lord Jorge Luis Ochoa's sister, Leona, as an impetus to form Colombia's Medellin Cartel.
    CIA asset Trenton Parker described that the CIA paid the M-19 group 3 million dollars, $2 million in guns and $1 million in cash, to carry out the kidnapping. Parker stated:
    I personally delivered two million dollars to Fidel Castro. And for those two million dollars he was to see that a shipment of arms was to go to M-19.
    Michael Maholy wrote that Latin American oil and gas drilling platforms of Bush’s Zapata Oil were used to funnel weapons and money to the Nicaraguans, and also to traffic narcotics into the US.

    Richard Brenneke testified that the CIA was in partnership with crime lord John Gotti.

    The drug trafficking through Panama into the US didn't stop with Noriega's kidnapping. The new puppet President of Panama was Guillermo Endura, President of a Panamanian bank used by the Medellin cartel. Picked for vice president was Guillermo Ford, part owner of the Dadeland Bank of Florida, who was also involved in money laundering.

    Jim Rothstein described how evidence of the CIA drug and Mafia links was delivered to district attorney Robert Morgenthau, and that the evidence “disappeared” in a day. Rothstein also described how New York City and county authorities refused to prosecute drug criminals working with the CIA.

    Does anybody remember Pizzagate?!?
    FBI agent Richard Taus, working under Assistant U.S. Attorney Louis Freeh, investigated the Pizza Connection, in which pizza parlours and cheese factories were fronts for organised crime's drug trafficking operations with CIA involvement. The CIA's secret group in Freeport, Long Island were involved in the drug trafficking, including Sal lmbergio, who ran for mayor.
    Several of the CIA K-team operation were associated with a nearby CIA-related firm called Drexel Company, of Drexel, Burnham, Lambert, which later changed its name to Castle Securities after its CIA-controlled Cayman Island parent, Castle Bank.
    Freeh refused to act on the connections between Drexel and the drug activities.

    Money laundering
    The CIA laundered some of the drug money through banks that knowingly accepted the funds, including Nugan Hand Bank; Bishop, Baldwin, Rewald, Dillingham and Wong; the Vatican Bank; Bank of Lavoro; and Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI).

    Nugan Hand bank was deeply involved in moving funds about the world for big international heroin dealers. After this scandal broke, in 1979 Bishop, Baldwin, Rewald, Dillingham and Wong (BBRDW) was started, operated, and funded by the CIA to take its place. BBRDW set up offices in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Indonesia, Singapore, and Australia, all former Nugan Hand locations, staffing the offices with over 30 CIA agents.
    Ronald Rewald was framed by the Justice Department, the CIA and federal judges; and sentenced to 80 years in prison. Rewald was released long before those 80 years, in June 1995, though.
    Rewald identified some of the people with secret bank accounts (using fake names) including: George Bush; Richard Armitage; William Casey; and Philippines' President Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos.

    Russbacher identified as CIA proprietaries or assets the following savings and loans: Aurora Bank in the Denver area, Silverado Bank Savings & Loan, Red Hill Savings and Loan, Hill Financial, and Indian Springs State Bank.
    Russbacher also stated that under National Fiduciary trust Companies were Badner Bank and International Commerce Bank Holding company. Under Badner Bank were various airlines, including Zantop Airlines: Tower Airlines; Southern Air Transport; Apollo Air; Virgin Air, and RAW World Service.

    BCCI was a major money laundering bank operating in 78 countries with at one time assets of over $20 billion. Bank of America and the CIA had a major ownership in BCCI. BCCI had a secret and illegal 28% ownership in CenTrust Savings Bank, whose failure will cost the American taxpayer over $2 billion. CenTrust was run by David Paul, a close friend of Senator Kerry, who [s]investigated[/s] covered up the BCCI scandal, and didn’t take any significant action.
    William Barr was an attorney with the Washington law firm of Shaw, Pittman, Potts & Trowbridge that represented BCCI for several years. William Barr was an attorney for Southern Air Transport that coordinated the arms for drugs pipeline from and to Arkansas and Central America.
    One of the men behind the founding of BCCI was Jackson Stephens (who financed Governor Clinton) who headed Stephens, Inc, located in Little Rock, Arkansas. Stephens, Inc. was in business with Harken Energy, where George Bush, Jr. was one the board of directors. Junior’s brother, Jeb Bush, had numerous dealings with BCCI and was frequently in BCCI's Miami office.

    October surprise – bribing Ayatollah Khomeini
    While the US military was preparing another rescue mission, the Reagan-Bush team sabotaged the efforts by making this plan public.
    William Casey and other members of the Reagan-Bush team met secretly with Iranian factions, offering bribes if the Americans remained hostage until after the November 1980 elections. The $40 million bribe money came from the Committee to Reelect the President (CREEP)

    Richard Brenneke testified that he saw George Bush and Donald Gregg in Paris on the weekend of 19 October 1980.
    Russbacher said:
    On the flight deck were pilots Richard Brenneke, an Air Force pilot, and I was the command pilot. In the cabin were George Bush; William Casey (who would be appointed director of the CIA); Robert Gates; Donald Gregg (who at that time was a member of President Carter's National Security Council) and others.
    Russbacher stated that other passengers included George Cave (former CIA Iran expert and translator); Richard Allen; Senators John Tower and John Heinz; Congressman Dan Rostenkowski; and Jennifer Fitzgerald of the State Department.
    Russbacher also saw Adnan Khashoggi and Hashemi Rafsanjani (Ayatollah Khomeini's second in command) in Paris.

    Ari Ben-Menashe stated that he was a member of the Mossad's advance team working with the French government, which arranged the meetings on the 19 October 1980 weekend in Paris.
    Oswald LeWinter stated that he saw George Bush, Donald Gregg and William Casey at the Paris meeting.
    Alexandre de Marenches said that he organised the meeting, on the request of his friend, William Casey, but that he did not attend it.

    This 20 September 1985 document describes the arms-for-hostages scheme showing Israeli involvement; identifying Gunther Russbacher and Robert Hunt (2 of Stich’s sources); and names Oliver North.

    The initial meeting was held in Geneva on or about 14 March 1980, between Ahmed Heidari and Mohammed Hussein Behishti with Cyrus Hashemi and Ari Ben-Menashe (of the Mossad).

    At a second meeting in Barcelona at the Pepsico International Headquarters Building, William Casey, Robert McFarlane and Peter Van Tyne (executive vice-president for Pepsico) met with the Iranians Hushang Lavi and Rogovin.

    Russbacher described how the CIA’s Valley Bank in Phoenix played a key role in moving money for the October Surprise.

    This 27 May 1986 document from John Poindexter to Bill Casey lists the bank account number of a CIA proprietary, for money for the arms. Also listed are Khashoggi, Gunther Russbacher and Robert Hunt. Vice President Bush apparently received a copy of this document.

    Lockerbie – Pan Am crash
    Robert Hunt described how Pan Am planes out of Frankfurt were used to smuggle drugs to the US, using Lebanese and Syrian drug traffickers. This made it possible to put a bomb on Pan Am Flight 103.
    An apparent motive for killing everybody on board the plane were 2 assets of the CIA, Charles Mckee and Matthew Gannon, who were returning to the United States to report on the CIA involvement in drug trafficking.

    Great thread - good research - thanks.

    The British Govt have an interesting track record in drug dealing.

    e.g. 19th Century Opium Wars.

    Opium Wars Political Cartoon by Prince Arthur, on Flickr

    From Wikipedia: 'The Opium Wars were two wars in the mid-19th century involving Great Qing and the British Government and concerned their imposition of trade of opium upon China, thus compromising China's territorial sovereignty and economic power for almost a century. The clashes included the First Opium War (1839–1842), with the British naval forces, and in the Second Opium War (1856–1860), also known as the Arrow or Anglo-French Wars to the Chinese, Britain was aided by French forces. The wars and subsequently imposed treaties weakened the Qing dynasty and Chinese governments, and forced China to increase its imports from colonial and imperial powers.

    Who is in charge of the Afghan Poppy Fields at the moment is a question we should perhaps ask?

    P2, heroin and arms for Khomeini

    From the beginning of the 1960s, for 20 years the Arsan gang smuggled hundreds of millions of tons of weapons to the Middle East, including Leopard tanks and U.S.-produced military helicopters, and arms from the Soviet Union and Bulgaria.
    Henri Arsan was the chairman of Stipam International Transport that was also trafficking drugs, which occupied a building in the Propaganda Due (P2) linked Banco Ambrosiano Milan. Arsan owned trains and ships and had billions of dollars stashed on bank accounts throughout the world.

    Opium from Afghanistan, Iran, Syria, and other areas of Asia were trafficked to Turkey, where it was transformed into morphine.
    From Turkey, the drugs were shipped through Bulgaria and Yugoslavia to Trieste, Italy in trucks of the TIR company. Then the morphine were shipped, mostly through Milan, to Sicily, where they were transformed into heroin and finally shipped to North America, Germany, Scandinavia, Marseilles (France), Belgium and the Netherlands.

    The weapons were trafficked from the ports of Genoa and Leghorn through the Sharadon region, in Syrian on the border with Turkey. From there, the weapons were smuggled to Middle Eastern "clients", including terrorists, military groups, and governments in Kurdistan, Lebanon, and Syria.

    Arsan used the Leghorn export company, owned by P2-member Maurizio Bruni.
    Another owner of Leghorn is P2-member Alessandro Del Bene, who was also indicted for weapons smuggling and very close to Licio Gelli.

    One large secret weapons sale involved arms from Israel to the Iran of Ayatollah Khomeini for Iranian oil at favourable prices. The oil was delivered to Israel thanks to British Petroleum and Royal Dutch Shell. The weapons were used in the war against Iran and Israel used the oil to invade Lebanon.
    The intermediary for this secret deal was the Swiss financial company Dreikot, a subsidiary of Banco Ambrosiano, at the time chaired by Roberto Calvi. Dreikot’s chairman was Hans-Albert Kunz, who travelled to London with P2-member Robert Calvi on his final trip (where he was “suicided”).
    Kunz was also an associate of Victor Emmanuel de Savoi, a close friend of P2 Grandmaster Licio Gelli.

    Hans-Albert Kunz and Gelli’s associate Stefano Delle Chiaie met in Switzerland with Sadeq Tabatabai, the brother of the daughter-in-law of Khomeini, who on 8 January 1983 was caught with 1.65 kg opium in his suitcase at Düsseldorf airport, but released on bail.
    See Ayatollah Khomeini, Sadeq Tabatabai and Franco-German journalist Peter Scholl-Latour on the flight from Paris to Tehran on 1 February 1979.

    On 7 March 1981, Karl Kofler, was found dead in his cell dead from an apparent “suicide” (killed with a long needle through his heart). Kofler was a key witness, who was expected to spill the beans:

    More on the Contras

    Already in 1981, the CIA knew that the Nicaragua Contras were financing their terror, including bombing and hijackings of Nicaraguan civilian planes, by “criminal activities”.
    In a June 1981 draft CIA field report, the CIA reported that the earliest Contra force (called ADREN or the 15th of September Legion), had chosen "to stoop to criminal activities in order to feed and clothe their cadre".

    In a September 1981 cable to CIA headquarters, it was reported that ADREN used drug trafficking for financing. According to the CIA cable, 2 ADREN members made the first delivery of drugs to Miami in July 1981.

    CIA Inspector General Frederick Hitz revealed that the CIA put a now-admitted drug operative - known under the pseudonym "Ivan Gomez" -- in a supervisory position over Eden Pastora. The CIA knew this in 1987, when “Gomez” admitted that in March or April 1982, he had helped family members engaged in drug trafficking and money laundering and "knew this act was illegal".

    “Gomez” described to the CIA how his family members had slid $2 million into debt and had gone to Miami to run a money-laundering centre for drug traffickers. Gomez said "his brother had many visitors whom [Gomez] assumed to be in the drug trafficking business". This brother was arrested on drug charges in June 1982. In September 1982, “Gomez” started his CIA assignment in Costa Rica.

    Already in November 1985, the FBI knew that Gomez's 2 brothers were large cocaine importers, with shipments from Bolivia's drug kingpin Roberto Suarez.
    That’s the same Suarez, who in 1980, with Argentine military support, financed the “Cocaine Coup” in Bolivia.

    Moises Nunez worked for Oliver North’s NSC operation and for 2 drug-connected seafood importers, Ocean Hunter in Miami and Frigorificos de Puntarenas in Costa Rica. One of Nunez's associates, Felipe Vidal, had a criminal record as a narcotics trafficker in the 1970s, but the CIA hired anyway, and Vidal continued to work for the CIA with the Contras until 1990.
    A December 1984 cable to CIA headquarters, details Vidal's ties to another drug trafficker, Rene Corvo, who worked with the Cuban Frank Castro, who reportedly was a Medellin cartel representative within the Contra movement.

    In 1987, John Molina told his brother that he had worked for the CIA staring in 1980 to purchase arms for the Contras and other US-backed forces in Latin America. John Molina suspected that some money came from drug trafficking.
    John Molina tried to pull out of the operation in 1987. On 2 October 1987, Molina got into his car when he was shot and killed. The assassin later claimed that he was sent by Colombian kingpins.

    According to documents that emerged during the Iran-contra cover-up, North got$2.7 million in untraceable cash from the money-laundering network, who took the money to Washington.
    The cash deliveries were arranged through Republic National Bank officer Nan Morabia:

    Trump’s “deep state fixer” Barr

    I’ve posted on the “sordid” William Barr before (who is responsible for the “suicide” of Jeffrey Epstein):

    The following article argues that Bill Barr is the “deep state fixer” Donald Trump found to take the place of Roy Cohn (an even more impressive cover-up artist than Robert Mueller or John Kerry?)…
    It contains references to some of the interesting books that I’ve posted about before.

    When George Bush Sr. became Director of the CIA in 1976, William Barr was already in the CIA’s legal office.
    Bush promptly brought back assassinations manager Theodore Shackley along with Shackley’s deputy Thomas Clines. Men like Felix Rodriguez had served under Shackley as he ran the opium-growing projects in Laos and the Operation Phoenix mass murder project in Vietnam

    William Barr joined helped Bush to stonewall the congressional investigation into the CIA following Watergate, led by Sen. Frank Church and Rep. Otis Pike. On George Bush’s recommendation, in 1977 Barr was hired as clerk to Federal Circuit Court Judge Malcolm Wilkey.

    See from right President Ronald Reagan, William P. Barr, and Attorney General Edwin Meese, at the White House, 1983.

    In the 1960s, Wilkey was general counsel to copper-mining conglomerate Braden Copper Company that was operating in Chile under the political management of Prescott Bush’s banking partner, Spruille Braden. After Salvador Allende became Chile’s President and confiscated Braden’s El Teniente mine, Allende was overthrown and murdered in 1973 in Operation Condor.
    In 1985, President Bush Sr. selected Malcolm Wilkey as ambassador to Uruguay.

    See the happy day, Barr was nominated as Attorney General in the Bush Sr. administration, from left: Sen. Strom Thurmond, Sen. Joseph Biden, William Barr and Sen. Patrick Leahyl, 12 November 1991.

    In 1992, Chile’s Supreme Court decided that President Bush Sr. could be ordered to appear in Chile, to testify on the CIA’s role in the assassination of Orlando Letelier in Washington DC in 1976. Chilean generals claimed that the CIA had ordered the bombing that killed Letelier.
    At the time, Attorney General William Barr, hired Malcolm Wilkey as a special prosecutor to intimidate the Democratic Congress in the House Post Office affair.

    Several people involved in the so-called “Iran-Contra” affair died very suddenly (and suspiciously).

    On 5 April 1991, John Tower and his daughter Marian Goodwin Tower died when Atlantic Southeast Airlines (ASA) flight 2311 crashed while approaching the Brunswick, Georgia airport killing all onboard.
    This happened not so long after George H.W. Bush had discovered that Tower was coming out with a book on his experiences, “Consequences: A Personal and Political Memoir”.
    When she died, Marian Tower had copies of documents linking George H.W. Bush to Iran-Contra.

    One day before Tower’s death, on 4 April 1991, John Heinz III (who like Tower was involved both in “investigating” Iran-Contra and according to Gunther Russbacher were flying to Paris on 19 October 1980) died in a suspicious crash over Lower Merion Township, just outside of Philadelphia.
    Heinz’s plane collided with the helicopter that had been dispatched to investigate a problem with the landing gear on Heinz's plane. All passengers died.

    In another one of those strange coincidences, Heinz’s widow, Teresa Heinz Kerry, married Bonesman John Kerry in 1995 (who later devised the Iran-Contra cover-up tale), who had worked closely with Heinz and Tower:

    The Order of the Garter rules the world: Order of the Garter and the Carolingian dynasty

    Almost 3 months before Geoffrey Berman was forced to step down as U.S. attorney by Bill Barr:

    On 26 March 2020, U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York Geoffrey Berman, standing alongside Attorney General William Barr, announced narco-terrorism and cocaine trafficking charges against the president of Venezuela Nicolas Maduro:
    Maduro and the other defendants expressly intended to flood the United States with cocaine in order to undermine the health and well-being of our nation. Maduro very deliberatively used cocaine as a weapon.
    Prosecutors allege that Maduro and other Venezuelan officials, including Defence Minister Vladimir Padrino and Chief Supreme Court Justice Maikel Moreno, "participated in a corrupt and violent narco-terrorism conspiracy" as leaders of the Venezuelan "Cartel of The Suns".
    Bizarrely they now suddenly accuse Maduro and his top aides of running a "narco-terrorism partnership with the FARC for the past 20 years". They supposedly also worked with Colombia's Revolutionary Armed Forces group, FARC, called “a terrorist organization” by the U.S.
    According to Bill Barr, FARC had "obtained the support of the Maduro regime, who is allowing them to use Venezuela as a safe haven from which they can continue to conduct their cocaine trafficking".

    The US charged more than a dozen top Venezuelan officials.
    Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced that the State Department would offer cash rewards of $15 million for information on Maduro, and up to $10 million for information on of some of his allies: former military intelligence chief Hugo Cavajal, retired general Cliver Alcala, former vice president Tareck El Aissami and head of the Constituent Assembly Diosdado Cabello.

    Sitting leaders of “independent” states are legally immune from prosecution under US law and international norms. But since in January 2019 the US recognised the much ridiculed Juan Guaido as the legitimate president of Venezuela (followed by another 60 countries), they can simply brush that aside.
    Even if Maduro is found guilty I don’t expect a full-blown invasion, like that of Panama in December 1989 and January 1990, after CIA agent Manuel Noriega threatened to blow the whistle on the dope dealing US president George Bush Sr.:

    Without “evidence”, and I’m afraid that I don’t see anything to substantiate these allegations, this could make Maduro even more popular in Venezuela (if he was really popular they wouldn’t need to support him with this “adverse publicity”)...

    For years now Nicolas Maduro’s popularity in socialist Venezuela has been boosted by “conspiracy stories” claiming that the US government is trying to get rid of him.
    Ironically Venezuela remains one of the biggest oil exporters in the whole world.
    If “they” really want to get rid of him, I would expect many, many stories (not necessarily true) to detail the corruption of the Maduro administration.

    The story on Venezuela’s state oil company PDVSA’s connections to long-time Rothschild banker and Trump’s Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross for some reason doesn’t get much media attention:

    Even the following story is overlooked by most of our wonderful media, and if the opposition to Maduro was real, I would expect that this would be made into another media hysteria...

    The best story I found on the “corruption” of the Maduro administration is that on 10 November 2015, 2 nephews of Maduro's wife Cilia Flores, Efraín Antonio Campos Flores and Francisco Flores de Freites, were arrested by the US Drug Enforcement Administration in Port-au-Prince, Haiti after trying to transport 800 kilograms of cocaine into the USA.
    They had been flown to Port-au-Prince by 2 Venezuelan military personnel and 2 presidential honour guards.

    One informant claimed that the 2 nephews of Cilia Maduro would often fly out of Terminal 4 of Simon Bolivar Airport, a terminal reserved for President Maduro.
    The profits were allegedly used to "help their family stay in power".

    On 18 November 2016, the Flores nephews were found guilty.
    On 14 December 2017, they were sentenced to 18 years in prison:

    The drug trafficking operation was probably much larger, but 2 informants that witnessed the drug trafficking nephews were murdered shortly before and after the arrest.
    According to drug “expert” Bruce Bagley:
    The nephews are just the tip of the iceberg ... Corruption is rampant in power circles in Venezuela. This case suggests a culture that drug trafficking is routine and daily fare for someone with contacts in the presidential palace. With their connections, they felt they would skate through ... They made a mistake because when the DEA heard their names they targeted them.
    Two weeks before the nephews were arrested in November 2015, the Venezuelan "Hamudi", who introduced the nephews to “CW-1”, was murdered by FARC suppliers.
    Several weeks after they were arrested, “CW-1” was also killed:

    For some reason our supposedly “anti-Maduro” media haven’t given much publicity to the Venezuelan Cisneros family or the drug trafficking involving Venezuela all through the 1980s. If this was never even reported it’s obvious that it never stopped!
    Until 1983, Venezuela didn’t produce narcotics but served as a shipment centre and "banking house" for the drug trade.

    The “dirty money” was laundered and a large portion was invested in Florida real estate. In 1983 alone, some $5 billion was "washed" through Venezuela.
    In 1980, Venezuelan real estate assets in Florida were estimated at more than $1.1 billion.

    Diego Cisneros, after emigrating from Cuba in 1929, started his career at the Royal Bank of Canada (one of the leading money laundering Canadian banks).
    Diego Cisneros was also a proud member of the elite Mont Pelerin Society.

    The Cisneros became one of Venezuela's most powerful families (with strong ties in Communist Cuba).
    In 1985, Diego’s son, Gustavo Cisneros, was vice-president of the Venezuelan Chapter of the Knights of the Sovereign Order of Malta and on the International Advisory Board of Rockefeller’s Chase Manhattan Bank.

    In 1984, it was reported that Oswaldo Cisneros Fajardo (a member of one of Venezuela's most powerful families, the Cisneros) was up to its neck in dope-money laundering in Florida. Oswaldo Cisneros Fajardo was working with the World Finance Corporation (according to the story an international money Laundromat). The story also described how WFC’s arms-for-drugs pipeline supported the Castro government.

    In 1984, Oswaldo Cisneros visited Cuba in a Pepsi company plane and met dictator Fidel Castro.
    Oswaldo’s wife was the Cuban Ella Fontanals de Cisneros, whose brother, Jose Fontanals Perez, was economic adviser to Fidel Castro and was a director of the Banco Nacional de Cuba in Havana.
    In 1984, Oswaldo admitted that he was in business with WFC's founder Cuban-exile Hernando Cartaya since 1975, but claimed, "I never knew, nor can I affirm that Cartaya has been tied" to the drug trade:

    In one of those strange “coincidences” none other than Gustavo Alfredo Jiménez de Cisneros Rendiles was a friend and campaign contributor of Hugo Chávez.
    They supposedly became enemies after Cisneros was involved in the 2002 Venezuelan coup d'état attempt that was staged to make Chávez more popular.

    Gustavo Cisneros was also a director of Barrick Gold Corporation (once again!) and advisor to the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies and Chase Manhattan Bank.
    See (from left) Peter Munk, David Rockefeller, and Gustavo Cisneros.

    Cisneros was also a board member of Univision and the World Economic Forum.
    Gustavo Cisneros holds citizenship to Venezuela, the United States, Spain and the Dominican Republic (where he lives since the 1990s):

    On 14 February 1985, U.S. customs officials in Hollywood, Florida discovered an undisclosed amount of cocaine in a jet belonging to a subsidiary of Pepsi-Cola Venezuela, whose President is Oswaldo Cisneros Fajardo.
    This plane was frequently used by Cisneros and his wife, including on trips to Cuba to meet Fidel Castro.

    Gustavo Cisneros was also a fishing friend of George H.W. Bush and is close to George W. Bush.
    See Gustavo Cisneros, George H.W. Bush with their wives.

    It has been reported that Gustavo Cisneros was involved in the 2002 coup to make Hugo Chavez more popular...
    As the Venezuelan media are blatantly supporting president Nicolas Maduro; it must be obvious that he is supported by media mogul Cisneros.
    See Maduro and Cisneros together…

    Gustavo Cisneros has donated up to $ 1 million dollars to the Clinton Foundation from 2009 to 2013, when Bush crony Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State.
    During this period, Cisneros was appointed to Haiti’s Presidential Advisory Council on Economic Growth and Investment.

    Another interesting link is that Gustavo Cisneros is also in Jeffrey Epstein’s little black book:

    In another one of those strange coincidences, Donald’s friend, casino mogul Steve Wynn, bought an oceanfront estate in Palm Beach from Emma Cisneros for $43 million:

    To think that I only started to investigate the Cisneros family, because they bought Gawker to shut it down after it had exposed that Donald Trump (who has always denied using drugs) used an amphetamine-like drug in 1982:

    On Sept. 19, 1991, the Venezuelan daily El Globo reported that a congressional investigatory committee had found that the Organizacion Diego Cisneros owned a Miami-based company, Celere, Inc., which was under investigation by the U. S. Drug. Enforcement Administration for at least three separate cases of cocaine trafficking. The committee was investigating drug-running and terrorism charges raised against several Venezuelans, including Lazaro Rogelio Ugarte Bresselau, a top executive of Celere, Inc. who had also served as a top security adviser to the Cisneros-allied Banco Latino.

    Gustavo Cisneros has been pictured with the absolute elite of the world, including Pope John Paul II, the Dalai Lama, Henry Kissinger, Deng Xiaoping, Lech Walesa, Nelson Mandela, Margaret Thatcher, Bibi Netanyahu, Agnelli and US Presidents Carter, Reagan, Bush Sr & Jr, and Bill Clinton.

    In 1976 the Rockefeller’s Latin American supermarket empire was broken up by the Andean Pact. The Cisneros family, with the help of their friend Pedro Tinoco, took over the Venezuelan branch. They could now integrate the various Cisneros interests, using one to promote the other.

    In 1996, the IMF “helped” Venezuela into hyperinflation. Causing a massive poverty of 86% and extreme poverty of 65% of the Venezuelans.
    Cisneros profited while the population suffered. He used his newfound wealth took over Azcárraga’s share in Univisión and began scooping up TV stations all over Latin America.

    On election night, Cisneros met the newly elected President Hugo Chavez.
    In 2004, Jimmy Carter arranged a meeting between Gustavo Cisneros and Chávez. Cisneros wanted Chávez to introduce him to the Lula government in Brazil:

    Still on Univision’s board of directors is Henry Gabriel Cisneros, who was mayor of San Antonio, Texas during most of the 1980s. Cisneros was President of Univision from January 1997 to August 2000
    Henry Cisneros was also Bill Clinton’s Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) from 1993 to 1997.

    Henry Cisneros had to resign from the Clinton administration over a scandal. Cisneros had an extramarital affair with Linda Medlar, producing a child. That wasn’t the scandal.
    Cisneros was also paying his estranged wife Mary Alice $4,000 a month, but for some reason lied to the FBI that he paid her less than $10,000 a year.
    In 1999, Henry Cisneros pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI and was fined a mere $10,000 (peanuts for a billionaire!).

    In July 1994, Mary Alice Jones Cisneros sued Henry for refusing to keep his part of the deal to send her $4,000 a month. So now, for some reason, the authorities followed the money trail into Mary Alice’s investments.
    They discovered that Mary Alice had lied on her home mortgage application, in which Mary Alice used money and signatures from her sister and brother-in-law. Mary Alice was convicted of money laundering, bank fraud and making false statements and sentenced to 18 months in federal prison:

    Henry Cisneros is (also) a member of the boards of the Milken Institute, Univision and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation:

    It's amazing how much information is available on drug trafficking by US intelligence agencies.
    The following 1986 document by Daniel Sheehan actually gives a good overview of what was later called the "Iran-Contra" scandal.
    It also presents information on the background and history of the "secret team" that orchestrated political assassinations going back to to the 1960s.

    Sheehan describes the "illegal, private Contra support network involved in gunrunning, drug smuggling, murder, political terrorism and other crimes". This same network helped the Reagan Administration smuggle weapons to the government of Khomeini's Iran.

    When the Carter Administration stopped US aid to Nicaraguan Dictator Anastasio Somoza, the "secret team" stepped in with weapons and ammunition. They were the Contras' early suppliers.
    After Somoza had to flee from Nicaragua, in July 1979, he set up his National Guard Generals in Honduras, and started a "Contra" military operation against the 1979-officially-U.S.-recognized government of Nicaragua. Somoza himself was in charge of the operation until he was assassinated in September 1980 in Paraguay.

    When US Congress planned to stop aid to the Contras, White House Chief of Staff Edwin Meese, Vice President Bush, CIA Director William Casey, National Security Advisor Robert McFarlane and NSC staff member Lt. Colonel Oliver North devised a scheme to circumvent this Congressional ban.
    Oliver North contacted Rob Owen of Gray & Company and General John K. Singlaub to establish the private "citizen-operated" Contra support group to help the Contras after the up-coming prohibition of White House aid to the Contras.

    In May or June 1983, the Cuban-Americans Felipe Vidal and Rene Corbo set up the cocaine trans-shipment operation on John Hull's ranch. On John Hull's ranches, the cocaine was off-loaded and smuggled to Miami, New Orleans, and Memphis.
    The cocaine came from Colombia's biggest cocaine producers and traffickers - Jorge Ochoa and Pablo Escobar.

    In May 1984, former Sandinisia military commander Eden Pastora wanted to expose the Contras' Adolfo Calero. The press conference at La Penca, Nicaragua was bombed, which seriously injured American ABC cameraman Tony Avirgan. Avirgan with fellow journalist Martha Honey conducted their own investigation of the Contras and their U.S. backers.
    On John Hull’s ranch, Amic Galil got 3 kilograms of C-4 explosives, which had been smuggled to John Hull's ranch through the combined efforts of Theodore Shackley, Thomas Clines, Richard Secord, Albert Hakim, Rafael "Chi Chi" Quintero, John Hull, Bruce Jones, Thomas Posey, Ronald Martin, James McCoy, and Mario Delamico.
    John Singlaub and Robert K. Brown provided Harper to Amic Galil to construct the C-4 bomb which Galil used to blow up the La Penca press conference.

    According to sources within FEMA, weapons were provided to the Contras under the cover of a FEMA training exercise.
    In May 1984, the State Defense Force unit in Louisiana got a large quantity of small arms and ammunition for "some kind of war game activity" supervised by the Federal government. Half of these arms would later be smuggled to the Contras in Central America.
    The weapons were secretly transported to a Louisiana warehouse owned or supervised by Louisiana state legislator "Woody" Jenkins, from where they would be airlifted to the Contras (mixed with "humanitarian" aid).

    From 1976 until the fall of the Shah, a highly secret assassination project in Iran was supervised by Theodore Shackley, Thomas Clines and Edwin Wilson.
    During this period, Edwin Wilson, in his "private capacity" was training Libyan anti-Shah terrorists with the help of Mohammar Gadhafi.

    From 1977 until 1979, Richard Armitage operated the Far East Trading Company from Bangkok, which was used to transfer/launder Van Pao opium money out of Southeast Asia to Tehran and the Nugen-Hand Bank in Australia to fund the private anti-communist "anti-terrorist" assassination program and "unconventional warfare" operation of Theodore Shackley's and Thomas Cline's "Secret Team".
    Shackley, Clines, Secord, Albert Hakim, Wilson, and Armitage set up several corporations and subsidiaries around the world to conceal the operations of the Secret Team. Many of these corporations were set up in Switzerland. Other companies were set up in Central America and the USA.

    U.S. military aircraft and weapons were bought from the U.S. government at the low "manufacturer's cost" but sold to Middle Eastern nations at the much higher "replacement cost" by middle-man Albert Hakim.
    Richard Secord and Hakim secretly transferred the millions of dollars in profits to Shackley's "Secret Team" operations inside Iran and into Shackley's secret Nugen-Hand bank account in Australia.

    When Ronald Reagan, Edwin Meese, William Casey, and Robert McFarlane, John Poindexter and Oliver North in 1985 and 1986 decided to again secretly sell arms to Iran, it was again the "Secret Team" of Theodore Shackley, Thomas Clines, Albert Hakim and Richard Secord that employed its tried and tested procedure of purchasing military equipment from the U.S. Pentagon at "manufacturer's cost" and selling the equipment at "replacement cost" and transfer the "excess" profit to finance "black operations" and the Contra war against Nicaragua.

    The same group of drugs trafficking, money laundering, "false flag" terrorists had been working together since 1960. In 1960, Richard Nixon and Santo Trafficante agreed that within the NSC's secret Operation 40 would be a "private" sub-operation, supervised directly by the mafia's Havana Lieutenant "Don" Santo Trafficante.
    At the time, the "Shooter Team" consisted of: Felix Rodriguez; Rafael "Chi Chi" Quintero; Frank Fiorini (aka Frank Sturgis); Luis Posada Carriles; Rafael Villaverde; Raul Villaverde; Ricardo Chavez; Rolando Martinez; and 2 other Cuban Americans.
    One of the "supervisors" of the group was E. Howard Hunt.
    In 1963, several Operation 40 participants were caught smuggling narcotics into the U.S. from Cuba.

    From 1966 to 1968, the commander of the Special Operations Group, which supervised the political assassination program in Laos, Cambodia, and Thailand, was General John K. Singlaub. At the end of 1968, none other than Oliver North served under Singlaub. Another member of the Group was one Dwight Owen - the older brother of Robert Owen.

    In 1974 and 1975, Theodore Shackley and Thomas Clines financed a highly intensified phase of the Phoenix Project in Vietnam with Van Pao opium money.
    From 1973 to 1975, the "liaison officer" to Shackley and Clines and the Phoenix Project was Assistant Secretary of State for Far Eastern Affairs Eric Von Marbod, who shared his information directly with his supervisor Henry Kissinger:

    Here's some more information on Daniel Sheehan:

    For more on making Ayatollah Khomeini the supreme leader of Iran by Anglo-American intelligence:

    Maybe the most important connection that Sheehan didn't detail is the JFK assassination that according to Dee Ferdinand involved Frank Sturgis.
    E. Howard Hunt has also been named as involved in the assassination:

    Despite president Biden’s and other NATO country's announcement of troop withdrawals from Afghanistan, the Afghan heroin production continues to be protected by private mercenaries and NATO troops.

    Some have argued that the real reason for the 2001 US/UK invasion of Afghanistan was the crackdown on poppy fields by the Taliban to blackmail the Bush-Cheney administration...
    Since the US/UK invasion in October 2001, poppy production in Afghanistan has increased 25-fold until 2016, from 185 tons in 2001 to 4800 tons in 2016.

    In 2014, the Afghan poppy cultivation hit a record high.

    The Afghan heroin economy is very lucrative (while Afghan farmers have difficulty making ends meet by growing food).
    In connection with money laundering it benefits the elite and also funds insurgencies and wars that are good for business.

    In the last decade, there has been a surge in Afghan heroin exports, which has fuelled a dramatic increase of heroin addicts in the US.
    There were 189,000 heroin users in the US in 2001. By 2016 that number went up to 4.5 million (2.5 million addicts and 2 million casual users of heroin).

    With nothing else to do, because of the coronavirus lockdown, people have turned to recreational drugs.
    In 2020, deaths from opioids and drug addiction in the US increased threefold.

    In one of those strange coincidences, the same Johnson & Johnson that is selling its “experimental” COVID-19 adenovirus viral vector vaccine, is also a major producer of "prescription" opioids.
    In November 2020, Johnson & Johnson reached a "tentative $26 billion settlement" in the US after turning its victims into dope addicts:

    I had previously posted about Jeb Bush's involvement with drug traffickers: Drugs-profits-for-Oil-wars#post6557463

    The following 1992 article detail some of the scandals connected to 3 sons of (president at the time) George Bush Sr. The most interesting is more on Jeb Bush's connection to the cocaine trafficking Nigaragua Contras.
    There are of course also links to Clinton... and Donald Trump!

    George Bush Jr. joined the board of Harken Energy. It was Stephens, Inc. that placed the Harken stock offering with the London subsidiary of Union Bank, which was associated with the notorious CIA-associated Nugan Hand Bank and Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI).
    In June 1990, George Junior suddenly sold most of his Harken stock for a cool $848,560. Had he waited until August, after the US ambassador in Iraq gave Saddam permission to invade Kuwait, when Harken shares plummeted, Junior would have lost $212,140 to sell his shares.

    Jeb Bush business associate, Manny Diaz, had previously been in business with the swindler Charles Keating, Jr., who is known for his association to John McCain.

    In 1986, Camilo Padreda hired Jeb Bush for help to defraud the corrupt Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for millions of dollars. Jeb Bush arranged the International Medical Centers (IMC) as a key tenant for Padreda's HUD-financed building.
    IMC at the time one of the USA's fastest-growing health-maintenance organizations (HMO) was headed by Miguel Recarey. Recarey boasted about his dealings with Miami mob boss Santo Trafficante Jr., who had financed Recarey's ventures.

    In 1985, Jeb phoned top Health and Human Services officials in Washington for a special exemption from HHS rules for IMC. Miguel Recarey needed this waiver for a Medicare fraud. In 1986, IMC collected over $30 million a month in Medicare payments; collecting $1 billion in total from Medicare.
    Recarey was also bribing union officials and illegally wiretapped IMC employees to find out who was talking to federal agents.
    Just when Recarey was going to be arrested, in 1987, he got a $2.2 million income-tax refund, for "getaway money", which Recarey used to live the wealthy lifestyle (first) in Venezuela.

    At IMC headquarters in Miami, Miguel Recarey met Contra leader Adolfo Calero and the notorious Felix Rodriguez, who arranged that Contras got free medical treatment at IMC hospitals in Miami:

    In 1993, Miguel Recarey was finally arrested in his new refugee the Kingdom of Spain, but for some reason was never extradited to the US to face charges.

    Recarey paid for "lobbying" President Reagan’s former aides Lyn Nofziger and John Sears, and the lobbying firm of Bush Sr’s campaign chairman, Lee Atwater.

    Recarey’s last known transaction before his escape to Caracas, was sending $30,000 to Nick Panuzio, chairman of Black, Manafort, Stone and Kelly, which also received more than $60,000 in 1986 from Recarey.
    Black, Manafort and Stone was the lobbying firm of Trump's dirt trickster Roger Stone and Paul Manafort, who years later hired the Podesta Group to "lobby" for the Ukraine (?), before becoming Trump's presidential campaign manager:

    I've previously posted about the one true narco-state in the world - Afghanistan - where the US, UK and Netherlands brought "peace, freedom and democracy" with bombs and heroin-trafficking politicians.

    The Mujahideen that later evolved into the Taliban and Al-Qaeda were forced to pay the CIA for the arms, and they could only do so by growing poppy.
    Afghanistan produced about 100 tons of opium annually in the 1970s. By 1989-1990, that amount of opium had become 2,000 tons a year, which was already about 75% of the world’s illicit opium trade.

    Afghans really don't have a choice, poverty rose from 9.1 million in 2007 to 19.3 million in 2016 (peace, freedom and democracy).
    It is now estimated that Afghanistan produces more than 90% of the world’s illicit opium. Since 2008, opium is responsible for more than half of the country’s GDP. To put that in perspective, even in Colombia cocaine never accounted for more than 3% of its GDP.
    Last year, Afghanistan's poppy cultivation grew by over a third.

    Matthew Hoh, a former captain in the U.S. Marine Corps in Afghanistan who resigned in protest over the continued occupation of Afghanistan in 2009, said that NATO forces were guarding poppy production and that they didn't destroy the poppy fields because Afghan officials were afraid that their poppy fields would be destroyed:
    They were afraid that, if they went to aerial eradication, the U.S. pilots would just eradicate willy nilly and a lot of their own poppy fields would be hit.
    NATO forces were more or less guarding poppy fields and poppy production, under the guise of counterinsurgency. The logic was ‘we don’t want to take away the livelihoods of the people.’ But really, what we were doing at that point was protecting the wealth of our friends in power in Afghanistan.
    Hoh also explained that local heroin producer Gul Agha Sherzai was paid by the US to eradicate his competitors’ crops in Nangarhar Province:
    We literally gave the guy $10 million in cash for rubbing out his competition. If you were going to write a movie about this, they’d say ‘This is too far fetched. No one is going to believe this. Nothing is this insane or stupid.’ But that is the way it is.
    Just about all the politicians installed into power in "democratic" Afghanistan were associated with the heroin trade, including Afghan President Hamid Karzai’s brother Ahmed Wali, who has been accused of working for the CIA.

    Between 2005 and 2015, the number of adult Afghan drug users jumped from 900,000 to 2.4 million, with around 9% of the adult population addicted to opioids (including heroin).
    In neighbouring Pakistan, the number of heroin addicts went from practically none in the late 1970s to over 1.2 million by 1985. In 2013, it was estimated that almost 7 million Pakistanis use drugs, with nearly 2.5 million abusing heroin or other opioids. Around 700 people die per day from overdoses.
    Iran has an estimated at 2 to 3 million opioid users, despite the extremely harsh penalties for drug offences.

    The U.S. government has a long history of being involved with dope dealing.
    In Colombia, it worked with President Alvaro Uribe on a "drug war", while U.S. documents identified Uribe as one of Colombia’s most important drug traffickers, employee of the Medellin Cartel and a “close personal friend” of drugs kingpin Pablo Escobar.

    The U.S. government still supports Honduran president Juan Orlando Hernandez, who is also connected to the cocaine trade. Earlier this year, a U.S. court sentenced Hernandez’s brother Tony to life in prison for drug smuggling, while Juan himself was identified as co-conspirator in the case:

    A second little black book that (probably) belonged to Jeffrey Epstein has been discovered. The first dated from 2004/2005 and this one is from 1997.
    This included one Suzanne Ircha, Melania Trump's close friend. Ircha became Suzanne Johnson after marrying Woody Johnson, who (in one of those strange coincidences) was selected for UK ambassador by President Donald:

    Woody Johnson is an heir to the Johnson & Johnson (J&J) big pharma company, Trump pressured the FDA to emergency approve the experimental J&J COVID vaccine.
    The video is mostly about J&J trying to turn as many Americans into opioid addicts (heroin is the best known opioid).

    Where's the outrage?!? On 1 March 2021, Queen Elizabeth added the Covert Human Intelligence Sources (Criminal Conduct) Act 2021 to the UK legislation.
    This gives British intelligence agencies (MI5 and MI6) the right to engage in any criminal activities, almost without restrictions, including narcotics, like in the Kingdom of the Netherlands).

    See on what grounds "authorisation" can be given for "criminal conduct".
    A criminal conduct authorisation is necessary on grounds falling within this subsection if it is necessary—
    (a) in the interests of national security;
    (b) for the purpose of preventing or detecting crime or of preventing disorder; or
    (c) in the interests of the economic well-being of the United Kingdom.

    There are around 2 million opioid addicts in the US, of which some 33 thousand die per year.
    While heroin gets harder to buy on the streets, the much more dangerous fentanyl that has been dubbed "White China", comes through mail by FedEx.

    In 2016, US Congress passed and President Obama signed the "Ensuring Patient Access and Effective Drug Enforcement Act", which severely restricted the DEA to take legal action against the big pharma narcotics dealers, because the DEA now had to prove that a narcotics shipment poses an "immediate" and/or "imminent" threat of death or grave harm to users.
    The new [2016] law makes it virtually impossible for the DEA to freeze suspicious narcotic shipments from the companies, according to internal agency and Justice Department documents and an independent assessment by the DEA’s chief administrative law judge in a soon-to-be-published law review article. That powerful tool [freezing opioid shipments] had [previously] allowed the agency to immediately prevent drugs from reaching the street.
