CIA’s “Great Pretense” Exposed in State-Secrets Fraud Case

Former DEA agent Richard Horn, with the help of his attorney, former federal prosecutor Brian Leighton, recently brought the mighty CIA to its knees.

For some 15 years, Horn waged a legal battle in federal court against a former CIA official whom Horn alleged had illegally eavesdropped on him as part of a CIA- and State Department-backed effort to thwart DEA's anti-narcotics mission in Burma in the early 1990s.

The CIA's efforts to undermine Horn's work in Burma in getting that nation's government to stem the flow of heroin to the United States should come as no surprise to those who are familiar with the "Agency's" history. It seems the CIA, over the decades, has often found itself in the corner of narco-traffickers and thugs who support the Agency's covert objectives in areas deemed critical to U.S. special interests – whether that be in Southeast Asia, Central Asia or Latin America.

That's the big pretense of the drug war practiced as dark art by the CIA.
