The EyeOpener- Morbid Addiction: CIA & the Drug Trade

The Modern-Day British East India Company: The CIA


Just as the British Empire was in part financed by their control of the opium trade through the British East India Company, so too has the CIA been found time after time to be at the heart of the modern international drug trade. From its very inception, the CIA has been embroiled in the murky underworld of drug trafficking.

There are billions of dollars per year to be made in keeping the drug trade going, and it has long been established that Wall Street and the major American banks rely on drug money as a ready source of liquid capital. With those kinds of funds at stake, it is unsurprising to see a media-government-banking nexus develop around the status quo of a never-ending war on drugs - aided, abetted and facilitated by the modern-day British East India Company, the CIA.

This is our EyeOpener Report by James Corbett presenting the history, documented facts, and cases on the CIA’s involvement and operations in the underworld of drug trafficking, from the Corsican Mafia in the 1940s through the 1980s Contras to the recent Zambada Niebla Case today.

  1. Naming Names. Viktor Bout popularized by Nicholas Cage in ‘the Lords of War’ was sacrificed, but his boss Semyon – well – read below. I’ll bet he, the Israeli Mafiya, the American Turkish Lobby (remember Valerie Plame and Turkish heroin manufacture?) and the World Bank know each other well.
    Semyon Mogilevich
    By Alexandra Silver Thursday, Jan. 20, 2011
    One of the FBI’s 10 most wanted fugitives, Semyon Mogilevich cuts a frightening figure. Called the “Brainy Don” (he has an economics degree), the Ukrainian-born mobster’s gang has a multinational reach, with his hands allegedly in everything from a Pennsylvania-based company that defrauded investors of $150 million to the East European gas trade. His other reputed crimes include murders, arms dealing and drug trafficking. Mogilevich was arrested in Moscow in 2008 for tax evasion, but, brainy and crafty as he is, was released the following year.
    Russian -Israeli oligarch lives in Budapest after marrying his Hungarian wife and owns all the armament factories in the country. His name seldom stays in the news for very long.

    Another excellent piece James, thank you. This has kinda been on my mind the last couple of days because weirdly “Mexican drug cartels” have been integral to two current stories related to Eric Holder. There’s the “Fast & Furious” thing, with arms going to a Mexican drug cartel, as noted in this Eye Opener report. And it’s also in this strange new nonsense about Iran’s supposed hiring of some used car salesman or something to go get a Mexican drug cartel to assassinate the Saudi ambassador in Washington. In the first story, Holder is denying prior knowledge and in the second he’s the one telling us this ludicrous Iran story is true and we should just trust him.

    What is with the Mexican drug cartel stories lately? I’m hoping Eric Holder comes up with a third Mexican drug cartel story for us. These things are always better in threes. Weirdness, no?
