KABUL, August 1, 2006 — Anti-narcotics police from Columbia [sic] the world’s leading producer of cocaine — have been touring Afghanistan — the world’s top producer of heroin.
They are in Afghanistan to advise officials on how to combat its drug trade. For the past 10 days, the five-member team has been meeting Afghan anti-drug officials from all over the country. Afghan officials say the Columbians [sic] may help train Afghan anti-drug agents in the future.
Their first piece of advice? Probably to send a multi-billion dollar “eradication” plan to the U.S. Congress and call it “Plan Afghanistan.” Ask for helicopters and tanks.
It’s amazing how incompetence is rewarded…
