WHY THIS BOOK IS IMPORTANT; AND POLITICAL IN THE BROADEST SENSE
PLEASE CIRCULATE TRUE DRUG INFORMATION WIDELY.
This is NOT a "side issue", of importance only to hippies and people on the fringes of society.
DRUG DE-CRIMINALIZATION IS AN ESSENTIAL PART OF THE FIGHT TO REGAIN OUR FREEDOMS, CIVIL RIGHTS, AND ECONOMIC RIGHTS AS WELL.
THE DRUG WARS ARE AN ESSENTIAL PART OF THE PLAN TO REMOVE OUR FREEDOMS AND CIVIL RIGHTS, AND LEAVE US WEAK, HELPLESS, SICK, AFRAID, AND IN POVERTY. In other words, a population EASY TO CONTROL.
It is not some mysterious entity, some cabal of evildoers behind the scenes plotting Earth's doom. It is the CAPITALIST SYSTEM ITSELF. In the Capitalist System, evildoers RISE TO THE TOP because they are MORE SELFISH AND RUTHLESS than the rest of us.
We need a system of Co-operation and SHARING Earth's resources FAIRLY. Didn't you learn the advantages of CO-OPERATION and SHARING in Kindergarten? Like that best-selling book said?
Capitalism is not such a system. And present-day events are proving it more than ever before.

Here's a very interesting website called the MadCow Morning News, which is featuring many, many stories on the real truth behind the seizure of a DC9, which was busted with 5.5 tons of cocaine in the Yucatan, and there are lots of juicy tidbits of information on the REAL PLAYERS, some of them you will notice as soon as you see their names. The name of the article is Dusty and 'the boys': The CIA, Narco Republicans, 5.5 Tons of Cocaine.
The beauty of this series of articles is that they are being presented on the one-year anniversary of the bust of this plane. You will be very surprised to learn of who is involved, and you will immediately notice that one of the prosecutors who was prosecuting a certain Congressman in San Diego, Carol Lam, was fired by Alberto Gonzales. Hold onto your seats, because this one will keep you mesmerized while you read it. Below is an excerpt, and I have borrowed this post from one of my friends on another website, who, I'm sure, will not mind me passing it along to interested parties here on Yahoo:
WORLD EXCLUSIVE April 24 2007 by Daniel Hopsicker
The first anniversary of the April 10 2006 seizure in Mexico's Yucatan of an American-registered DC9 caught carrying 5.5 tons of cocaine passed virtually unnoticed last week. It shouldn't have...
Porter Goss resigned less than a month later, the same day the FBI executed a search warrant at the house of the No.3 official in the Central Intelligence Agency, Kyle "Dusty" Foggo, soon to go on trial for corruption with accomplice Brent Wilkes.
Not since the downing of a C-130 military cargo plane over Nicaragua in 1986 with Eugene Hasenfus onboard, kicking off the Iran Contra Scandal, has an aviation incident been remotely as important or as fraught with significance.And not since the massive cocaine smuggling through Mena, Arkansas has the CIA's hand been so flagrantly caught in the cookie jar.
In a series of stories beginning today, and continuing over the next ten days, the MadCowMorningNews
will report the results of a year-long investigation into the secret history of this operation.
Some of the highlights include:
·SkyWay Aircraft of St Petersburg, FL., the company which owned the DC9 airliner stuffed to the top of the overhead bins with cocaine, was a CIA front.
·SkyWay's genesis can be traced to In-Q-Tel Inc., a secretive, Arlington, Va., investment group owned, operated, and financed out of the black box budget of the Central Intelligence Agency.
·SkyWay was part of a network of companies, three of which, L-3 Communications, Net Command Tech Inc, and Triton Network Systems Inc., were cited by Elliot Spitzer, then the Attorney General of New York State, for being used by Wall Street brokers in "pump and dump" schemes which cost unwary investors tens of millions of dollars.
·The suspicious involvement of L-3 Communications subsidiary Titan Corp of San Diego, the biggest donor to Southern California Congressmen convicted or being investigated by fired San Diego U.S. Attorney Carol Lam.
·The Israeli connection to SkyWay, including the involvement of an Israeli tele-com firm, Tadiran, accused of being involved in worldwide espionage, and which owned the headquarters of SkyWay in Clearwater, Florida.
·The involvement of Gulf Arab financiers, including an overseas bank, Banque Francaise de l'Orient, long associated with the Saudi bin Laden family.
·Evidence of Republican party involvement in the network, which included the free use of one of the smuggling aircraft by the current head of fund-raising for the national Republican party, U.S. Senator Mel Martinez, who "traveled to nighttime rallies in luxury," the St. Petersburg Times reported, "on a DC-9 owned by Skyway Global, a Clearwater security company whose owners are Martinez supporters."
Still more shocking details
Over thenexttendays, we'll present evidence for each of these heady claims, and attempt to find the answer to what is still a major mystery:
Why haven't U.S. authorities arrested the owners of an American-registered plane busted with 5.5 tons of cocaine?
The story began here:
The drug trafficking operation was flying an airliner carrying 128 suitcases...but no passengers. There was no attempt to camouflage their activity.
Mexican soldiers unloaded the American-registered DC9, whose cargo consisted of 128 identical black suitcases stuffed with cocaine, onto the hot asphalt runway in Cuidad del Carmen, an out of the way airport nestled in the middle of the Yucatan jungle.
In what may have been someone's idea of a joke, each suitcase bore a stamp on its side, with the single word "Privado."
The DC9 sported a distinctive Seal on its fuselage: blue-and-white with gold trim surrounding an eagle clutching twin olive branches, making it virtually indistinguishable from official U.S. Government planes belonging to the U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security.
WORLD EXCLUSIVE APRIL 17 2006--Venice,FL. by Daniel Hopsicker
One of the two owners of the DC9 (tail number N900SA) busted at an airport in Ciudad del Carmen in the state of Campeche, Mexico last week freighted 5.5 tons of cocaine had been appointed in 2003 to the Business Advisory Council of the National Republican Congressional Committee by then-Congressional Majority Leader Tom Delay, The MadCowMorningNews can exclusively report.
