The CIA now runs a counterterrorism center to stymie the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. In the name of fighting drugs, the agency financed new military intelligence networks in Colombia in 1991. However, these networks have incorporated illegal paramilitary groups into their ranks and fostered death squads. It may be more interested in fighting a leftist resistance movement than in combating drugs.
