OBL and the spiked cocaine plot

The NY Post is reporting this morning that a year after 9-11, OBL attempted to buy massive amounts of cocaine, spike it with poison, and sell it in hopes of killing a massive amount of Americans:

The evil plot failed when the Colombian drug lords bin Laden approached decided it would be bad for their business – and, possibly, for their own health, according to law-enforcement sources familiar with the Drug Enforcement Administration’s probe of the aborted transaction. The feds were told of the scheme earlier this year, but its existence had never been made public. The Post has reviewed a document detailing the DEA’s findings in the matter, in addition to interviewing sources familiar with the case.


Although the drug lords would have reaped millions of dollars in profits by selling the cocaine to bin Laden, they knew that if his plan succeeded it might effectively destroy the market for their coke in America for years, sources said.

But that was only one reason they declined bin Laden’s offer.

The other was their fear of retaliation from the U.S. government once its citizens started to die from the drugs, according to sources.

Hmmm. This may seem a little too obvious to ask but aren’t people *already* dying from cocaine abuse? I guess the drug lords are ok with several thousand deaths a year rather than hundreds of thousands. Let’s be thankful that for one time in their miserable pathetic lives, the drug lords made the right decision.
