2. But we turned Afghanistan into the biggest heroin factory ever seen!

(complete with sharecropper-like growers, living in poverty, while the profits accrue to the distribution networks. And who might they be, now? Hmmm?)

It's odd to recall Bush's Oct 2001 announcement of the bombing and invasion, based in part on their having provided "training camps".
We then turned Afghanistan, and later Iraq, into vast training camps, where we provided most of the targets, arms, and money- for a decade!

Truth is stranger, and more regrettable, than fiction.
