From The Video Vault: 1996 Senate Hearing On CIA Drug Trafficking

You have to view this to get the big picture.

In April 1986, Associated Press reported on an FBI probe into Contra cocaine trafficking. According to the report, “Twelve American, Nicaraguan and Cuban-American rebel backers interviewed by The Associated Press said they had been questioned over the past several months [about contra cocaine trafficking] by the FBI. The interviews, some covering several days, were conducted in Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, Colorado and California, the Contra backers said.” Several of the backers told AP of firsthand knowledge of cocaine trafficking.

  1. Hi Earl, great post on a terribly important topic. I grew up in Milwauke, though I live in New Zealand now. I recently wrote a memoir explaining why I live in New Zealand: THE MOST REVOLUTIONARY ACT: MEMOIR OF AN AMERICAN REFUGEE. It concerns my close encounter with US intelligence in the late 1980s when I was helping some African American friends convert an abandoned school they were occupying into an African American Heritage Museum. Cynthia McKinney came out to Seattle to support the Museum in 2008 when she was running for president: Is there any possibility you might be willing to do a radio interview with me. You can find out more about me and my memoir at If you are interested I can make my book available as a PDF or mail you a review copy (I’m on Skype which means I can call you in Milwaukee for 2 cents a minute).
