Operation Enduring Profits

Production of Afghan heroin jumps by 61%

"The latest UN figures indicate that the output of heroin increased by 61 percent in Afghanistan last year despite the Western claims about their will to curb the production of drugs during the invasion of the war-battered country.

Opium production by Afghan farmers rose between 2001 and 2011 from just 185 tons to a staggering 5,800 tons. Last year, levels increased by 61 percent, with more than 90 percent of heroin found on British streets being traced back to opiates cultivated in Afghanistan, according to UN figures.

The UN figures make grim reading for those who backed the invasion of Afghanistan."

Not grim at all for the architects of 9/11 and the planned invasion. As a matter of fact the outcome probably far exceeds their wildest estimates because they got away with it scot free.
The Taliban virtually eliminated opium poppy cultivation in the country in 2000 - 2001 and empire moved in to rectify that situation.
