The Great Heroin Coup with Jerry Meldon

A template for the control of heroin has been in place for a long, long time. Afghanistan supplies 90 percent of the world's poppy. These drugs are being sold on the streets of America and funnel right back to fund terrorists. The poppy trade seems to parallel US involvement intelligence operational starting in Vietnam, The Corsican Mob's involvement in the JFK assassination, South East Asia, Central America, Iran -Contra, South America and now Afghanistan. Coincidence? Not according to our guest and his book "The Great Heroin Coup". Jerry Meldon is Associate Professor of Chemical Engineering at Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts. He has written extensively about U.S. foreign affairs, intelligence operations and narcotics trafficking for the Boston Globe, and other media outlets.
