UN. Drug money used to keep ailing banks afloat


The United Nations’ crime and drug watchdog has indications that money made in illicit drug trade has been used to keep banks afloat in the global financial crisis, its head was quoted as saying on Sunday.

So, let’s see if I have this right, organized crime money is being used to keep organized crime banks in business? I’m guessing they might want something in return.

Why is the UN the first to report this? Here, I thought the US government was super anti-drug and presumably opposed to drug money infiltrating business. I mean, how could they not know?
