US Drug Policy in Afghanistan

Escalating levels of violence and corruption in Afghanistan, reaching their zenith since the US-led ousting of the Taliban, have lead to concerns over the burgeoning opium production and the subsequent rise of drug lords and their support of terrorist and anti-coalition activities, as carried out by members of the banished regime. Representative Henry J. Hyde (R-IL), Chairman of the House International Relations Committee, has called for the US to intensify its counterdrug and counterterrorism operations in Afghanistan, lest the country collapses into a “failed narcotics state.”
