Ron Paul: Secretive CIA in ‘Drug Business’

US House Rep. Ron Paul says the CIA has has in effect carried out a “coup” against the US government, and the intelligence agency needs to be “taken out.”

Speaking to an audience of like-minded libertarians at a Campaign for Liberty regional conference in Atlanta this past weekend, the Texas Republican said:

There’s been a coup, have you heard? It’s the CIA coup. The CIA runs everything, they run the military. They’re the ones who are over there lobbing missiles and bombs on countries. … And of course the CIA is every bit as secretive as the Federal Reserve. … And yet think of the harm they have done since they were established [after]World War II. They are a government unto themselves. They’re in businesses, in drug businesses, they take out dictators … We need to take out the CIA.

Paul’s comments, made last weekend, were met with a loud round of applause, but they didn’t gather attention until bloggers noticed a clip of the event at YouTube.

Paul appeared to be referring to news reports that the CIA is deeply involved in air strikes against Al Qaeda targets in Afghanistan and Pakistan. A suicide bombing late last year against Forward Operating Base Chapman in Afghanistan took the lives of seven of CIA operatives, including two contracted from Blackwater. The event highlighted the CIA’s deep involvement in the war effort.

Paul’s reference to the CIA being “in the drug business” refers to long-running allegations that the CIA has funded some of its covert operations with proceeds from drug-running. That claim was most famously made in a 1996 investigative report from the San Jose Mercury-News, which alleged that cocaine from the Contra-Sandinista civil war in Nicaragua was making its way to the streets of L.A. via the CIA.

    I could be wrong – I hope I am, but I suspect you all work for the CIA and have effectively destroyed Ron Paul’s chances of election to higher office.

    Five quotes from Martin Luther King that relate to our people: “He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil, without protesting against it, is really cooperating with .” [Are you accepting and promoting the evil of colonialism, the evil of the Hispanic/Latino labels that are imposed on our people, the evil of the thefts of our continent and the forced impoverishment our people? Are you cooperating with evil? Or are you ready to confront the ignorance and injustice that oppresses our people? Are you ready to stand up for the honor and dignity of our people?]

    “If a man hasn’t discovered something that he will die for, he isn’t fit to live.” [Are you living just for the toys and sex, for the money and being part of whiteness? Or are you ready to live for knowledge, to live in courage, to live for the liberation of our people?]

    “Never forget that everything Hitler did in Germany was legal.” [At different points in history white people made evil the law of the land. They made stealing our land legal. They made killing our people legal. They made enslaving African people legal. They made it illegal to help Africans escape slavery. They made segregation legal. They made their borders on our continent legal. They made it illegal for us to cross their borders on our continent. They illegally “legally” divided our people. They made the theft of our continent and the theft of our wealth (from all of our natural resources) legal. What they have done against us is not legal, nor is it moral. It is pure evil! Are you just going to sit back and allow evil to rule your life?]

    “The question is not whether we will be extremists, but what kind of extremists we will be… The nation and the world are in dire need of creative extremists.”

    “The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and cruelty by the bad people but the silence over that by the good people.”

    Quotes from Martin Luther King


    “Nobody can give you freedom. Nobody can give you equality or justice or anything. If you’re a man, you take it.”

    “Usually when people are sad, they don’t do anything. They just cry over their condition. But when they get angry, they bring about a change.”

    Malcolm X


    “It is better to die on your feet than to live the rest of your life on your knees”

    Hey, According to Mr. Jim Marrs who is a former journalist and author of many books about the JFK murder, the CIA was involved up to their necks, if they do the same to Dr. Ron Paul will that wake us up? or are we just going to let it go like we did with Kennedy, he got in trouble cause he wanted to do away with the Federal Reserve and stop the war, there is huge amounts of evidence just watch the video “files on JFK” look we know the CIA has been exposed before for trafficking but nobody got convicted. WTF!!!!
    Dr. Ron Paul is very brave to say it openly, that we are being controlled by real traffickers, it turns out they are just using our military and police to attack their competition. WTF! I hope we don’t let anything happen to Dr. Paul because there are few men with his courage, to go against, the people who killed the Kennedy brothers.

    Dr Ron Paul is the man we need in the White House, we must get him elected so that he can clean the house, I will vote for Dr Paul, he is the last hope of the Republic of America.
    Everybody knows that the CIA is involved in drug trafficking in order to fund terrorist operations, I just did not know they are not accountable to anyone.
    Bravo Dr. Ron Paul.

    “They want to put us through body scanners to get on a planes? Which destroy’s are very DNA, not to mention the Right to Privacy.”

    Radio Waves destroy DNA? If that were true, your DNA would have been destroyed a long, long time ago. Have a problem with being scanned for explosives before you board an airplane, then do as I do, and DON’T friggin’ fly!

    Well I did vote for Ron Paul. However, he was so good, that main stream media wouldn’t even talk bad about him. They said nothing about him at all. It was like they didnt even know he existed. They did consider Obama, the golden boy.
    No puns inteded. I just have one question. Why is it, the United States was “attacked”, so we loose our rights under the Patriot ACT, did the terrorist win the war? They want to put us through body scanners to get on a planes? Which destroy’s are very DNA, not to mention the Right to Privacy.
    Ya, I want people to be safe on air planes. Dont get me wrong. I also want the people to be treated like people.
    Rember with all the security they have put in place, how did that guy get on the plane with no passport and a bomb straped to his ass. They had scanners at the airport? I get frisked like Iam on a watch list or somethin. Think about it?
