Counter-drug operations

All aspects of the "war on drugs" worldwide, including intelligence, law enforcement, and operations; sometimes also called counternarcoterrorism since 9/11. Though the DEA is the lead counter-drug organization, the Department of Defense, particularly in Afghanistan and Latin America, is also deeply involved in both intelligence and interdiction of narcotics.
