In "Seeds of Terror: How Heroin Is Bankrolling the Taliban and al Qaeda," Gretchen Peters outlines the union of narco-traffickers, terrorist groups, and the international criminal underworld making bad stuff happen. It's clear and disconcerting that events happening today were set in motion by what took place in Afghanistan in the 1980s and 1990s. Listen to Peters on the Leonard Lopate Show to discuss the labyrinthine connections between terrorism, the American government, and the heroin trade that have come together to create a the real axis of evil. It's quite narcotic.
