DEA funds terrorism

Of course that's meant to be a sensational headline... but it's actually true.

And God only knows how the DEA would flip the tables if some anti-drug-war group was guilty of the same thing.

According to the Times:
[The DEA] sent David C. Headley, a small-time drug dealer and sometime informant, to work for them in Pakistan months after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, despite a warning that he sympathized with radical Islamic groups, according to court records and interviews. Not long after Mr. Headley arrived there, he began training with terrorists, eventually playing a key role in the 2008 attacks that left 164 people dead in Mumbai.
Nice one.

Remember kids, drugs don't cause terrorism, the DEA does.

I wonder what the DEA's brain looks like funding terrorists?
