Retired CIA Agent: “We Run the Afghan Opium Trade”


Cheyenne, WY | A retired CIA agent recently convicted of possession of child pornography accuses the US government of trying to frame him as he is about to release a book that will “blow the lid off the CIA’s drug smuggling operations in Afghanistan” reveals the Cheyenne Herald this morning.

John F. Abbotsford, a 38-year old Afghan war veteran, that has also served his country as a CIA analyst, has recently been convicted of possession of child pornography, accusations he claims “have been made up” by the US government to stop the publication of his upcoming book, the CIA in Afghanistan: 30 years of drug smuggling.

“This is a desperate attempt by the US government to shut me up” he said in court.

“If I’m going to face jail time, I want the truth to be known before they try to get rid of me in prison” he told the judge.

“I’m not scared of their threats, whatever happens, I will never shut up” he cried out in the courtroom.


The former Army intelligence officer, Afghan war veteran, and recipient of the Combat Action Badge, Purple Heart, and the Military Outstanding Volunteer Service Medal, has been sentenced yesterday to nine months in jail followed by three years of probation

“A massive cover-up”

During the court session, the retired CIA operative refused to answer all questions concerning the child pornography possession charges and kept talking about alleged CIA drug smuggling related events in Afghanistan.  

“I’m ashamed to say that I have participated in these drug smuggling operations on many occasions. For a long time, I tried to convince myself that we were doing it for the right cause, but this burden is destroying me inside and I just can’t stand it anymore” he admitted before the court audience.

“The CIA has been dealing drugs since its creation. They’ve been smuggling drugs everywhere in the world for the past 60 years, in Taiwan in 1949 to support General Chiang Kai-shek against the Chinese commies, in Vietnam, in Nicaragua, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg” he launched out during the court trial.

“We helped the Mujahideen develop poppy cultivation to fight the Soviets, but we took back matters in our own hands in 2001 when we invaded Afghanistan under Bush” he pleaded.

9/11: A pretext to invade Afghanistan

The Cheyenne Herald also reports that the man’s website, that was shut down by family members hours after the conviction, claimed that the 9/11 terrorist attacks where in fact staged by his own government and a “pretext” to invade Afghanistan.

He also believed that the Islamic State is presently financed by the CIA’s alleged heroin smuggling operations with the purpose of “destabilizing governments of the Middle East” and “toppling non-US allied country leaders, such as Bachar Al-Assad in Syria” to “secure beneficial oil deals for the US and allied countries”.

In 2010, Abbotsford, 33, was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder, and a year later he received a medical discharge.

  1. At first I was shocked to learn the CIA is doing what they are supposed to fight..but then,
    this is America, like any other country reined by the military,it plays ‘not at all evil’, as it is just above a v e r a g e e v i l . Losing trust in and respect for a government
    agency that pretends to avert evil from us, only encourages the..counter-intelligence guys.
    I can’t wait to read Abbotsford’s book: print it! The Dirki

  2. Do you guys supply tinfoil to line the hats of these people. Boy, some could use a lot more.

      A brave American is being framed for speaking out against evildoers…yet your answer is to ridicule those here with cliches? No rational arguments, huh? No intelligent rebuttal based on facts? And most of all, no compassion. This man is a John the Baptist, a voice crying in the wilderness. He may not have everything right, but he isn’t using dumb cliches or insults. The whole net is full of that stuff…a bathroom wall of tired old insults about Kool Aid and tin foil. Dear God, at least get another handbook!!

    • Hey man, sounds like you need to dial back your Prozac dosage. You’re nodding off.

  3. Why, because the Antichrist Obama can do his things to run the world through UN. Do you think Obama can have all this power without Bush help? They all work together. Do you know Obama is able to be Europe leader because of his suppose birth mother.

  4. Importantly for this guy we need to get to the findings of his trial. If there is no evidence of him possessing child pornography then the gov has the smoking gun. The era of the kind of gov the cia has been connected to with the kind of clandestine deals made for enemies such as the holder armsdeal with the Cartel should have ended long ago.

      Something similar happened to MAJ Scott Ritter, who was a UN weapons inspector after he publicly said that there were no WMD in Iraq.

    • It would not be difficult for the CIA, another government outfit or right-wing hackers to download files onto his computer.

    • They can remotely plant child porn on anyone’s computer, anytime. Usually it is done in a non-public manner and used to blackmail whistle-blowers, members of Congress (Boehnercoughcough), Supreme Court justices (Robertscoughcoughcough) and even presidents.

    • They could have killed him but it would vindicate him. They had to discreet him.

      We need to get the court records. Is that just a plea or are you asking for assistance and actively seeking it.I’m in the UK and there are many such groups writing to each other and moaning but if I ask for support to take on authorities I get no response. We need to get the court records would be better written as I will get the court records and publish them. Do that and you might save this man’s life.

  5. What he is saying is all fact. If you think that any of it is not possible you are asleep and need to wake up!!
