Claude "Bill" Powers

Claude “Bill” Powers died this week at age 74. We lost more than just a retired DEA brother. Bill was an authentic American hero, who I admired more than I can describe.

I first met Bill in 1974 when we were studying Thai at the Foreign Service Institute. During that time, I also met Kay, who was to become his wife. Eventually, we were both assigned to Thailand, though Bill was in Chiang Mai and Songkhla, while I was in Bangkok. Subsequently, our paths would cross at one time or another over the years, in places like Dallas, Turkey and California.

DEA: Afghan Heroin Conspiracy Foiled

Refuting Pro-Pot Lies!

Dear AFFNA Members,

I am posting several important articles which will help keep our membership informed on the efforts of the pro-legalization groups and the lies they promote with the general public. My good friend Monte Stiles, a former AUSA and nationally renowned expert on countering drug legalization provides great information and works closely with law enforcement agencies nationwide.
