Before establishing a legitimate destination let alone a plan to get us there, we need to honestly discuss the lay of the land. There has been a great deal of dishonesty from law enforcement and our political leaders on the topic of illegal drugs going right back to the propaganda used to criminalize marijuana.
Narco News is a web site that covers this issues on an ongoing basis. It's very doubtful that you will see this information beamed to your idiot box by the corporate whores in the mainstream media. There is a very good reason for this, you just need to understand the financial incentives and then it all makes sense.
Why would Richard Grasso, Chairman of the New York Stock Exchange travel to meet a commander in the FARC?
On June 26, 1999, Reuters reported that Grasso met with Colombian rebels, the FARC, in an article entitled "NYSE Chief Meets Top Colombia Rebel Leader". The FARC is considered a terrorist organization by the U.S. State Department (on its list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations) and is allegedly responsible for kidnappings and narcotics trafficking in order to bankroll their revolutionary activities (see: narcoterrorism).
The article quoted Grasso as saying, "I invite members of the FARC to visit the New York Stock Exchange so that they can get to know the market personally." Some found the meeting inexplicable, considering the FARC supports anti-capitalist ideals and has no officially recognized financial clout. Grasso told reporters that he was bringing "a message of cooperation from U.S. financial services."
