EXCLUSIVE: Top Inspector Urges: Probe Possible Link Between Afghan Opium and U.S. Heroin Epidemic - Breitbart: The United States government should look into the potential relationship between record production of opium in Afghanistan and the heroin crisis in the United States that has killed tens of thousands of Americans, a top U.S. watchdog tells Breitbart News.
In an exclusive interview with Breitbart News, U.S. Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) John Sopko, declared:
I don’t know if there’s a link, but it seems to me somebody ought to be looking at that at DEA or somewhere else in the Department of Justice [DOJ] … It just seems somebody should do it. It’s not my job, but just as a U.S. citizen — I’m a taxpayer and U.S. citizen — I would be concerned about that.
