Obama shut down the NDIC in 2012, the itelligence agency dedicated to tracking terrorism funded by drug trafficking.

“Mexican cartel violence is at an all-time high along the increasingly porous southern border yet the Obama Administration has shut down a critical intelligence agency dedicated to identifying, tracking and severing the nexus between drug trafficking and terrorism.”

The last report from the NDIC in 2012 had dire warnings about growing problems on the border that were “tantamount to living in a war zone”.
Obama closed NDIC in 2012, and said Holder’s DEA was going to be taking over the NDIC work. The DEA has no reports since 2012.

Sounds like the problem is solving itself. Less junkies less deaths.

That’s pretty heartless. The sheriff is right to investigate what’s going on here. That’s a dramatic change in heroin deaths.

Pittsburgh has the same problem going on. The dope is being cut with higher amounts of fentanyl and the od rates have taken a noticeable turn upwards.
