Your tax dollars at work

The still-ballyhooed after all these years "War on Drugs" surely has been profitable for some folks. Ever wonder who reaps the spoils? Here's a hint from one front:
A jaw-dropping new investigative report from Teo Ballvé turns up a metric shit-ton of evidence that Plan Colombia has been funneling millions of dollars directly to drug traffickers and paramilitaries, who in turn use it for their "legitimate" business interests: biofuel production on land that they've stolen from campesinos! It's a win-win situation, for evildoers!
That's all on your dime - or rather your half trillion dollars annually.

On the home front, the war on drugs has certainly been profitable for the prison-industrial complex, and done irreparable damage to local communities.
