    If we have moles that infiltrate terrorist networks is there any reason they can't do the same thing?

    The US should not have turned its back on Afghanistan following the Soviet withdrawal, but of course that comes with hindsight. And granted, with the collapse of the Soviet Union and the invasion of Kuwait by Iraq, America's leaders' eyes were focused elsewhere. Still, our foreign policy apparatus has certainly had no qualms about getting into bed with some awful people in pursuing their goals. It should be mentioned though, as far as I know, that the CIA had little to do with issuing resources to the mujahideen; that job was tasked to Pakistan's ISI. Nevertheless we should have been more actively involved in deciding who we were supporting.

    March 13, 2014 WASHINGTON — The U.S. doesn't have the ships and surveillance capabilities to go after the illegal drugs flowing into the U.S. from Latin America, the top military commander for the region told senators Thursday, adding that the lack of resources means he has to "sit and watch it go by."
