The article offers information on the Operation Bahamas, Turks and Caicos (OPBAT) which aims to combat the drugs flowing into the U.S. through the Caribbean. OPBAT is the largest and oldest cooperative initiative being applied by any government involved in drug enforcement. The operation began after a massive drug-smuggling business was created by smugglers George Jung and Carlos Lehder in the area. Flight support to the U.S. and Bahamian drug enforcement agents is being provided by the U.S. Army.
