The CIA Criminal Empire that Started with Operation Gladio – The Weekend ShockCast

What you are about to listen to, in one sense, is something that has been years in the making. For years, I have wondered at how Afghanistan could be the source of 93% of the world’s heroin. I just couldn’t understand how the US Air Force could completely control the airspace of Afghanistan, while thousands of square miles of opium poppies were under cultivation.

We could see those poppy fields from the air, and could have sprayed them with any of the massively potent herbicides at our disposal, but we didn’t.


We had satellites that monitored everything that went on in Afghanistan – along with everything that went in and out of Afghanistan. There was seemingly no way that so much heroin could actually be leaving such a remote, land-locked country that was under the complete control of the United States military.

How was ANY of this possible?

Why was no one talking about this?

The streets of America and Europe are filled with heroin. In fact, there’s so much of it, that it’s actually cheaper than similar prescription opioids.

Yet, we are doing nothing about the source of this problem.


And, when you see that a huge and potent problem can be solved cheaply and easily, you know that you are looking at something really bad. And, I suspected that the source of the problem was the CIA. But, suspicion doesn’t reach certainty, unless you can fit enough pieces together to see the bigger picture.

And, see how it began.

This vast criminal empire began with something that some of us ALSO knew about:

Operation Gladio

But, it’s one thing to know ABOUT an operation. It’s something entirely different to track down its origins and see how it got its funding. This ‘tracking process’ is why this week’s series was initially called ‘Gladio’. But, you will notice that I don’t really call it Gladio anymore.

It’s now, all about the vast criminal empire created by the Central Intelligence Agency. And, as I moved through the steps of figuring out how this empire developed, the picture got clearer and clearer and clearer.

So, walk with me now, through the process of untangling the twisted origins of the greatest criminal empire in the history of mankind.
