    You can't tell me we can't find a diseases that will attack the poppy that will wipe it out in Afghanistan . We could build dam's to catch the snow there so they can grow crop's other then the poppy . If they continue to grow the poppy , Sterilize the land of the offender . We can get tough or just keep letting them kill the rest of the world with this drug . Make the hard choice or suffer the drug problem . We can't worry about the feeling of the drug growers and save the world at the same time .

    Indeed, explaining to Interpol and the rest of the world why the CIA wants the poppy fields unmolested is a big problem for America. The old Washington Two-Step. While American citizens are harassed routinely under the guise of America's War on Drugs, the CIA appears to be one of the major suppliers of DRUGS around the world.

    Yes, that could be a problem if and when American citizens begin to realize that. Under the horrific Republican administration of Bush-Cheney Opium production in Afghanistan increased 50 TIMES, making Afghanistan the world's largest Opium producing area in the world, ALL under the protection of America's CIA.

    The hard sell however is the FACT that Opium and Heroin bring severe penalitys in all of the Muslim ruled nations in the Middle East, including Iran. That must make the US State Dept's mission to discredit the CIA's direct involvement in the drug trade very difficult.
