In Afghan fields the poppies grow.
CIA, Wall Street establish drug empire in Afghanistan: Stephen Lendman
An analyst says the Taliban had eradicated poppy fields prior to 2001 and so Washington plans permanent occupation of Afghanistan to maintain control of its opium empire.
In the background of this the United Nations has advised that opium cultivation in Afghanistan has increased for the third year in a row. The report said poppy cultivation was highest in regions where US-led troops had been stationed over the past years, which is mostly in the southern parts. Last year Afghanistan supplied about 75 percent of the global supply of heroin, a derivative of opium, which is expected to jump to 90 percent this year due to the increased cultivation.

|katsung47||This is from a small drug gang. Could you imagine how much has a big cartel like Sinoloa made after twelve years of a licensed drug trade? You can never see this kind of picture in US. The money all gone to the corrupt D.O.J. They cultivate drug gangs, let them collect money for the agents, then grab the money. That's so said War on Drugs.|

Nations Largest Cocaine Smuggler Revealed: The DEA
Mexico's largest cocaine cartel. The written testimony, combined with other evidence, shows DEA officials met with leaders of the Sinaloa cartel more than 50 times between 2000 and 2012. This would mean DEA-authorized drug smuggling goes back to at least the beginning of the George W. Bush administration, and continued for a year under Barack Obama.
One of the groups leaders, Vincente Zambada-Niebla, claims the American government also sent military-grade weapons to Sinoloa. According to the latest revelations, it was these weapons which were part of the Fast-and-Furious scandal. Automatic firearms which disappeared during that operation, led by Eric Holder, were used to kill U.S. Border agents.
This latest evidence and testimony points toward a massive scandal, involving both Republican and Democratic administrations. At the very least, this provides the best evidence so far that the Federal government was sponsoring the smuggling of billions of dollars of cocaine into the United States. Worse still, weapons purchased for the U.S. military may have been sent to the cartel, and used to kill American agents.

You could use this as a data point to support that many in LE are not that far removed from the criminals, at least in mentality.
