The CIA and Chinese Heroin – Gladio Part 2

As I said yesterday, intelligence operations are expensive. We already know the cost of wars, but very few understand the incredible costs required to maintain intelligence gathering networks and engage in covert operations.

Furthermore, governments like to keep their hands clean. They want to be able to say that the assassination of such and so was a complete surprise and none of their doing.
