Afghan military recruits found dealing drugs to US soldiers, Army documents show 20 Apr 2012 Afghan forces are being trained by the U.S. military to take over the mission [of protecting gas and opium routes] by 2014, but new documents obtained by Judicial Watch through a request under the Freedom of Information Act show that some of the Afghan recruits stand accused of dealing drugs to U.S. soldiers. Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton and his investigators found that between January 2010 and December 2011, the Army investigated 56 soldiers in Afghanistan for the possession, use or distribution of opiates. Heroin was cited 26 times. A December 2011 report from Army Criminal Investigation Command shows that at one forward operation base the drugs hash, pot and heroin were purchased "from various Afghan National Army and Afghan National Police personnel."
