Meanwhile, in the other war.....

Afghan counternarcotics minister resigns
By Jason Straziuso, Associated Press Writer | July 8, 2007

KABUL, Afghanistan --Afghanistan's counternarcotics minister has resigned only weeks after Afghan laborers finished cultivating an opium poppy crop that could exceed last year's record haul.


Much of the profit from the country's $3.1 billion drug trade is believed to fund Taliban fighters waging a violent campaign against the government. Officials said Sunday that recent clashes between police and insurgents left 11 suspected militants dead in the south, while Taliban fighters kidnapped a local leader from his home and shot him to death.

Isn't this the place that Osama Bin Laden was training terrorists?

So a record crop of poppies is fueling terrorists where the people who took down the Twin Towers were trained?

Someone explain the logic to me please.
