3 narcs bite the dust

Since the DEA is an American civilian “law” enforcement agency, would somebody mind telling me what they were doing in Afghanistan? Were they “advisors” sharing their invincible expertise on ending drug production?

Apparently, the agency has been strong-arming their pilots into going over, with threats of demotion, and sending their “problem children” out of the country. I have a little sympathy for those who thought they were getting a domestic job.  But fundamentally, I have no more sympathy for the DEA than I have for your typical Waffen SS member, and for the same reason.

In the past year, the DEA has launched an ambitious plan to increase its personnel in Afghanistan from about a dozen to nearly 80, greatly expanding its role, particularly in military actions against drug traffickers.

So were these guys counted in yesterday’s “14 casualties”? Are they soldiers?  Sorry, I will never celebrate the death of an American soldier….but I’m celebrating now.

    If we can’t abolish it and we can’t stop unconstitutional and unjust meddling in the affairs of other countries, I think that we should send all of the employees of the Drug Enforcement Administration to Afghanistan or Iraq. Then we should send the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives bureaucrats after them. For that matter, how about the IRS?

    Hmmm, that’s a thought. But really, Iraq and A-stan are too good for the DEA — too safe now. Parachuting into Iran or North Korea seems to be indicated.
