Summary
  • This book examines the specific issue of whether or not there is a nexus (link or point of convergence) between international opium and heroin trafficking and terrorist networks operating in or from Afghanistan. Since 9/11 many public officials and others have made definitive statements concerning an alleged nexus between criminal narcotics trafficking and terrorist networks in Afghanistan. Although some anecdotal and circumstantial evidence suggests that a linkage between drug traffickers and international terrorists may exist in Afghanistan, the question is whether a convincing case based on sound empirical data can be made regarding a nexus or linkage between Afghan-based terrorists and national or internationally-based drug traffickers
  • The opium/heroin trade has been and continues to be a destabilizing factor in Afghanistan and a grave regional and international security concern. Does a symbiotic relationship exist between drug criminals, some public officials, the Taliban, and other terrorist/insurgent entities in Afghanistan? If so, what are the implications of that unholy alliance?
