Today, headlines are full of disheartening statistics brought on by the opioid crisis ailing our nation. Why is this? Based on evidence, doctors are massively over-prescribing opioid-based painkillers to patients, even when they didn’t need them. What started as a perscription for an oral surgery then becomes an addiction to pill popping. Natural and synthetic opiates, from Lortabs to Oxycontin, from Dilaudid to Fentanyl patches, have placed an entire nation in crisis. People are dying by the thousands every single year. So who is responsible for this?

Whistleblowers have Alleged CIA and Other US Agencies are Involved in the Opioid Epidemic

How are opioids finding their way to small towns throughout America? Why are we providing families with Narcan, a drug to counteract the effects of opioid overdose? For years whistleblowers in the CIA and US military have made allegations that shadow operatives are assisting the inflow of drugs from various parts of the world including South and Central America as well as the Middle East. Since the war, Afghanistan has been radically transformed into a narcostate, and the mainstream media has refused to cover it. Why? The Afghan business of opium harvesting is a one trillion dollar industry.

The current opioid epidemic in America has two facets: 1) over perscribing pain killers and 2) the increasing use of illegal forms of hard opiates like heroin. Both have resulted in thousands of deaths in the U.S. The CIA may have their hands in both.

According to William Blum, an author and former employee at the State Department, the CIA was involved in the transportation of opiates, which can be refined into narcotic medications, and heroin from Southeast Asian countries. They then introduced them into the West:

“The CIA flew the drugs all over Southeast Asia, to sites where the opium was processed into heroin, and to trans-shipment points on the route to Western customers.”

The underground government, also known as the Deep State, has been operating illegal drug trafficking schemes for decades. 

Most people have become familiar with the term “Deep State” because of the 2017 leaks of classified information about Donald Trump.

Long before Trump, Former Representative Ron Paul spoke out about an “underground government” and CIA drug deals in Iran-Contra:

“[Drug trafficking] is a gold mine for people who want to raise money in the underground government in order to finance projects that they can’t get legitimately. It is very clear that the CIA has been very much involved with drug dealings. We saw [Iran-Contra] on television. They were hauling down weapons and drugs back.”

Squawker published a previous article about how the CIA was heavily involved in moving cocaine to the United States, made possible by an open border with Mexico.

In the Vietnam War, there was a concentrated effort to bring heroin into the United States. Most of the heroin ended up in large coastal cities where it was brought in on ships. From there it was distributed across the nation.

Opioid Crisis

Why would a government want to poison its people with opiates? I am not sure I can say for certain, but an old history teacher told our class to, “always follow the money.” I think the money might be the driving factor; unless of course, you are of the persuasion that there is a concerted effort to demoralize and destroy the Middle Class; taking that even further, it can also be a method of control. Have you ever seen a junkie who needs a fix? They would do anything for it
