Unfortunately, I have nothing to offer
you with respect to evidence of CIA "profiting from both ends of
the Drug War." In fact, I would be interested to hear anything concrete
you discover in your investigations, as everything I have read so
far smacks of rumor and innuendo falling far short of hard proof.
Until such a day, I will remain inclined to regard this CIA-crack
trade connection as yet another fatuous conspiracy theory highlighting
what is worst today in America: the looking for scapegoats in improbable
scenarios and blaming others for our own problems.
The exorbitant costs of drugs to our
society is not the result of some shadowy CIA dealings or any other
criminal plot, but the idiocy and short-sightedness of millions and
millions of Americans who buy and consume illegal drugs. Such is
the bed these people make for themselves, let them lie in it.
Good luck with your investigations.
