Reminder: Iran Involved in Drug Trade

I pointed this out in my original post on Manssor Arbabsiar, but it's worth pointing out again and on its own:

two U.S. law enforcement sources told NBC News that Arbabsiar, in recorded conversations with an undercover drug informant, said in coded language that the same individuals who were orchestrating the bombing plot against the ambassador were involved in drug dealing. He told the informant that his Iranian handlers could arrange to provide Los Zetas, a Mexican drug cartel, with “multi-ton” shipments of opium, the sources said.
Thanks to See-Dub, who apparently is still alive somewhere.
