justice The Central Intelligence Agency paid the Peruvian intelligence organization run by fallen spymaster Vladimiro Montesinos $1 million a year for 10 years to fight drug trafficking, despite evidence that Montesinos was also in business with Colombian narcotraffickers, The Herald has learned.

Montesinos, 56 and in jail near Lima on corruption charges, is now dragging the CIA into his legal battles, asking Peruvian court officials to interrogate two CIA officers as part of his defense against charges that he helped smuggle guns to guerrillas who provide protection to Colombian narcotraffickers.

COLLAPSE!
Just when you think the drug warriors couldn't be any more corrupted! The policies of prohibition are finally reaping what they have sown. For so long there has been too much room for corruption & now it seems that this monster that the antis have created has finally come back to haunt them.

It was inevitable. We all saw this coming. The day is very near when we will see justice, SWEET JUSTICE!

Love that word, pakalolo.
Haven't heard it since I was in Hawaii in '73. Smoked the best stuff in my life while I was there. Something called Elephant weed. Then there was Maui-waui, Kona gold,...ah...nostalgia.

There are 30,000 legalize sites on the net now. I've noticed membership is growing fast at all the clubs I frequent. I love it. The gathering of the snow flakes that will form the snowball.

Peace. Realize, then Legalize.

Dig in
and you'll hit the dirt soon enough. Montesinos is afraif he's going to be whacked off soon. Sure, if the CIA doesn't go to bat for him it means he'll be taken care of. Montesinos is a U.S. International Policy creation, and be not surprised if it turns out the drugs/weapons game was being played by the CIA itself. After all, more money had to come from somewhere.

What are the ties between the Narcos in Peru, and the DEA/CIA ?

The story of the mullah and the hashish
Once, a Moslem preacher was holding forth on the evils of hashish. While he was gesticulating wildly, his own stash flew out and landed on the ground. Not missing a beat, the mullah said, "Look, my telling the truth about it has caused it to flee. Don't anyone touch it, or you will be lost!" The crowd edged away and finally dispersed. When everyone was gone, the hypocritical mullah reached down, picked up his stash, and walked away.

So, Sr. Montesinos was the CIA's chief anti in Peru, huh? And he was taking money from the narcos, too? Well, since he worked for the Company, should we be surprised at his double dipping?

After all, the Company did the same in Mena. Hypocrites. Hypocrites all.
