What does section 7076(d)(2) of "the Act" say? I'm interpreting that to say that the US is cooperating with the Afghani government against Al Qaeda and the Taliban's cultivation of poppy.
"I want to my live my life taking the risk all the time that I don't know anything like enough yet, that I haven't understood enough, that I can't know enough, that I'm always hungrily operating on the margins of a potentially great harvest of a future knowledge or wisdom. I wouldn't have it any other way." -- Christopher Hitchens

Section 7076 lays out conditions that must be met in order for the Afghan Government to receive assistance from your Department of State. It seems to me that Mrs Slick Willy has, for whatever reason, decided that Afghanistan can continue to produce opium and still receive assistance.
I'm betting some old money is changing hands some ware. When I find a copy of the act I'll post a link, but I'm sure you get the gist. If your interested in this type of information this site is a useful resource;

Bold part was waived.
Not sure if this is a big deal or not...(IMHO probably not)... but what is in you that would lead you to jump tp the conclusion...... I'm interpreting that to say that the US is cooperating with the Afghani government against Al Qaeda and the Taliban's cultivation of poppy.... when the OP post clearly indicates a waiver was granted for the section in question?????

It should be pretty obvious.
As a undocumented fund-raising resource, the Obama Administration could use the Opium from Afghanistan, and the Cocaine and marijuana from mexico and Central America, to advance a Islamo-Marxist agenda on America and the West, and contribute to the "Demoralization" of American youth, making them dependant on government supplied drugs and entitlements so they can sit in Government supplied housing, stoned, and uncomplaining, while the "Change" happens all around.
It should be very obvious to anybody. If you don't recognize what's going on, then you're stoned or stupid or something.

She's probably getting a piece of the pie, along with Obama. There is a lot of money in major drug trafficing, in case you didn't know. It's even more lucrative than corruption in "Oil for Food" deals with Iraq. The whole UN got bought off with that one.

I really doubt they'd even need to launder it. I wasn't here at the time, but I'm sure people posted about the crates of US currency shipped to Iraq. Nobody's watching the store. Hillary or Obama could print off a wad and take it wink wink nod nod to any foreign or domestic bank they like with no questions asked and no records kept.
