I was so impressed by this: United States Withdraws Radar Assistance in Honduras
The US Embassy in Tegucigalpa today confirmed that the Obama administration has decided to suspend radar assistance that helps the Honduran government detect narco-planes. The decision follows the creation of the Law on Protection of Airspace, which authorizes the Honduran Air Force to shoot down any aircraft in its airspace that is suspected of being used by drug traffickers.
Wow, I thought. Has the U.S. finally learned the lesson from the deaths of
And then I read…
According to officials, the concern was because in some cases, these â€œnarcoavionetasâ€ could be undercover agents of U.S. intelligence.
“in some cases” ??? â€”More like 50% of cases.
Kindly google any of the following:

* Dark Alliance: The CIA, the Contras, and the Crack Cocaine Explosion by Pulitzer Prizeâ€“winning journalist Gary Webb

* The Politics of Heroin: CIA Complicity in the Global Drug Trade by Alfred W. McCoy

And don’t forget The Boodle Boys
An excellent source of links to excerpts of important books that help shed light on some of the most mysterious events in Human history is Third World Traveler. Be warned: a classic Wonderland rabbit-hole awaits.
And for more up to date info, I go here to Al Giordano’s Narco News Bulletin you won’t hear about anything his (truly!) ‘authentic journalists’ (the real deal, not blow-dried buffoons on the Boob Tube) dig up in our corp-rat-ly controlled LameStream Media. All protein, no fluff.
Same for Greg Palast. Read some of his work and you start to feel like the guys with the sunglasses in the sci-fi movie They Live. You won’t look at anything the same way, ever again.
We should be so lucky.
If anyone’s interested in making a difference, we’re looking for folks to help build a database on politicians’ stances on legalizing marijuana: https://blog.smokethevote.us/can-smoke-vote-help-legalize-marijuana/
The system is built, it was very expensive. But now, anyone can go to http://www.smokethevote.us, drop in their address(or 9-digit zip if they’re paranoid), and the system will spit out a list of all the offices they vote for, and the endorsed candidates for each office.
Never give your vote to a prohibitionist again!
DEA agents are prone to shooting themselves in the foot. The agents flying aircraft over Honduras are obviously no safer when it comes to being shot at by their own Honduran ground troops.
Contact your congresspersons. Tell them to stop giving DEA agents access to guns.
Everybody’s got a soul, it’s just that some of them are just black holes.
Well they warned us that if we cut off their merrywanna profits that they’d just move into pushing hard drugs, and it sure looks like the camels have their toes under the tent. Everyone knows that garnishes are the gateway to the hard stuff! The next time you’re sitting on a beach in sunny Alcapalca and sippin’ on a Cuba Libre, just remember that makes it all your fault!
Gosh, I really don’t think they should have published this one on April 1 without a disclaimer either way. Wal-Mart de MÃ©xico?? Well, they made me look. Geronimo!? This has to be a joke, sÃ?
Be a good citizen, and don’t suck any blood limes!
Say what? NJ Prosecutors Association now supports Marijuana Legalization.
New Pew Research national survey shows America continuing on the path to the end of the War on (some) drugs.
You beat me to it Crut….I thought at first is was a late April Fools joke… in NJ?
It will have to be after the Outlaw Jersey Whale is removed from office,,that fat bastard is still making money from prohibition.
Hey, Pete there is something wrong with the top post. Permalink shows twice and I can’t get to the comments.
primus-click on one of the “Permalink” ‘s. It will take you to the comments.
Apparently, I can’t use a $ symbol in a headline. That’s what messed it up. Fixed now.
I have had a hell of a time just getting DWR to load the last cuppla days, working much better now, thanks Pete.
