Dark Alliance: The CIA, the Contras, and the Crack Cocaine Explosion By Gary Webb
This is an awesome piece of investigative journalism that exposes, through the use of court records, government reports, congressional testimony, and interviews with the people involved the hypocrisy of the Reagan administration's war on drugs. It is a proven fact, admi...tted by the CIA inspector general that the CIA, in order to support the Contras, permitted them to flood America's inner city with cocaine which went on to become the crack epidemic. These thieving drug dealers and former butchers of the dictator Somoza are then likened by President Reagan to our founding fathers. Its a shameful episode in our history and nobody cares, not even the left, because the CIA is still in the drug business.
