Your Tax Dollars at Work

Ten U.S. soldiers from Fort Huachuca, Arizona, have been charged in a $3 million drug-running scheme for allegedly transporting more than 100 kilos of cocaine and 1,000 kilos of marijuana across the Mexican border in Army-owned vans with U.S. government license plates. The whole time, they wore their uniforms to allay suspicions on post and at the U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint. In their defense their lawyer pointed out that some of the soldiers "only had an income of $1,250 a month." Fort Huachuca is headquarters of the Army Intelligence Center, which every year trains several thousand soldiers in military intelligence.
