Do drugs = terrorism?  A tenuous

Do drugs = terrorism?  A tenuous link between the drug trade and terrorism was made in two Super Bowl commercials.  David Kurz doesn’t think it holds water and I, like most people, concur with him.  We support terrorism more through the purchase of fine oil products than drugs.  FWIW, I think the group responsible had heard about Afghanistan’s opium production (heroin), and thought they finally had a way to tie the war on drugs with the war on terrorism.  A perverse twist to this logic is that the Taliban effectively banned the production of opium in 2000, so by eliminating them, we have probably paved the way for Afghanistan to regain its former 80% market share in the drug.
