Description

When the "San Jose Mercury News" ran a controversial series of stories in 1996 on the relationship between the CIA, the Contras and crack, they reignited the issue of the intelligence agency's connections to drug trafficking, initially brought to light during the Vietnam War and then again by the Iran-Contra affair. This text shows that under the cover of national security and covert operations, the US government protected major international drug traffickers. A new preface discusses developements in the six years from 1992 to 1996, including the "Mercury News" stories and the public reaction they provoked.
