Charles Burris observed:
It’s all about drugs. It has always been all about drugs. Researcher Peter Dale Scott has convinced me that the “deep politics” reality of our foreign policy with the Third World since the end of World War II has been narco-centric, behind the Cold War/War on Terror public facade or rationale. We clearly see this in revelations of AIG, Goldman Sachs, and the bailouts, which have begun to expose the Narcosaurus as never before.
“AIG’s involvement to US covert operations stretches back to World War II, in its roots as C.V. Starr, the intelligence-related proprietary founded by OSS agent Cornelius Vander Starr. The Starr proprietary was connected to CIA/OSS figures Paul Helliwell and Tommy Corcoran. The notorious CIA fronts connected to C.V. Starr, including Civil Air Transport, Sea Supply, and Air America/Pacific Corp were exposed by Peter Dale Scott in his book Drugs, Oil, and War: The United States in Afghanistan, Colombia, and Indochina. It is also a huge financial “pass-through”, whose counter-parties include Goldman Sachs and (not surprisingly) the same major financial institutions that are the top recipients of the US government’s TARP bailout.”
“It is no surprise that Barack Obama is the top recipient of AIG funds. AIG’s money also lines the pockets of other members of the Obama administration, and prominent members of Congress, including Senator Christopher Dodd, who has been accused of a sweetheart deal aiding AIG.”

I think this is a topic that should be widely discussed, but if one does you are going to be called a “Kook” and a “Conspiracy buff”.
