Pentagon Wants to Keep Running Its Afghan Drug War From Blackwater's HQ

November 24, 2012 by legitgov

Pentagon Wants to Keep Running Its Afghan Drug War From Blackwater's HQ 21 Nov 2012 Inside a compound in Kabul called Camp Integrity [sic], the Pentagon stations a small group of officers to oversee the U.S. military's various operations to 'curb' the spread of Afghanistan's cash crops of heroin and marijuana, which help line the Taliban's CIA's pockets. Only Camp Integrity isn't a U.S. military base at all. It's the 10-acre Afghanistan headquarters of the private security company formerly known as Blackwater. Those officers work for an obscure Pentagon agency called the Counter Narco-Terrorism Program Office, or CNTPO. Quietly, it's grown into one of the biggest dispensers of cash for private security contractors in the entire U.S. government: One pile of contracts last year from CNTPO was worth more than $3 billion. And it sees a future for itself in Afghanistan over the long haul... When all the options are exercised, the contract extends through September 29, 2015, over a year past the date when Afghan soldiers and cops are supposed to take over the war. And the "government preferred location" to base CNTPO? Camp Integrity.

Doublespeak!

This is an example of the doublespeak the federales put out. At the same time they say the troops have to stay in the area to fight a drug war, the troops are also there helping the locals GROW and GUARD the drugs. The heroin poppy crop is as big a it has been in years, and the marijuana crop is coming along nicely.

Drug war...hah! This so-called drug war is only to keep control of the cocaine and pot supply so they can support their shadow government programs.
