Eden Hill Journal

Comments, dreams, stories, and rantings from a middle-aged native of Maine living on a shoestring and a prayer in the woods of Maine. My portion of the family farm is to be known as Eden Hill Farm just because I want to call it that and because that's the closest thing to the truth that I could come up with. If you enjoy what I write, email me or make a comment. If you enjoy Eden Hill, come visit.

Who’d A Thunk

I noticed in today’s news that the brother of Afghanistan’s president is reportedly on the CIA payroll. This is the very same brother who is suspected of being deeply involved in Afghanistan’s corruption, or more specifically, Afghanistan’s booming opium and heroin trade. For more information I point to The New York Times.

Presumably our CIA doesn’t have the resources or the skills needed to determine if this man is indeed involved in the drug trade or for that matter in any other kind of corruption in Afghanistan.

Would someone please remind me what the CIA’s function is?

Actually I think it might be better to start by reminding the CIA what their function is.

I think the CIA already knows. Here's a good summary:
