The New Obama Afghan Policy Could Put Him in the Crosshairs

Per the New York Times the President's Afghan policy has changed from targeting just the Taliban to including Drug Lords who supply 90% of the world heroin market. This market is estimated to be upwards of $70,000,000,000 ( US ).
The Bush administration left the drug lords alone for unknown reasons. It has always been understood that money does go from the drug lords to the Taliban to fund their war.
Logic only tells you that by taking out the drug lords you strangle the Taliban's war efforts.
But, reality tells you that this policy could put you on a hit list by the world's most wealthy and dangerous people.
Who are these people, the Russian mob, the Mexican mob, the US mob and not to mention Al Qaeda themselves.
This policy is going to anger a lot of evil people in the world who really don't give a damn if they live or die or who lives or dies.
This policy could jeopardize the safety of NATO force elected officials, including President Obama and European Presidents.
