The CIA, The Contras, and the Crack Cocaine Explosion An extraordinary piece of investigative journalism and one of the most controversial books to be published in the US during the 1990s, this expose of the figures behind the crack cocaine epidemic reveals that many millions of dollars raised from drug sales were funneled into the CIA-backed Nicaraguan Contras. Government cover up, conspiracy theory, death, disease, crime and unspeakable violence - they are all here.

This is one of the most important books to be published in my lifetime. Don't read this if you're invested in the moral righteousness of the United States. Do read this if you want to understand the world a lot better.

The CIA is pure and pristine! They don't torture, they don't commit crimes, they don't embezzle millions and billions, they don't push drugs. No, just kidding! Several recent journalists have been investigating CIA Director John Brennan; both these journalists died under somewhat mysterious circumstances.
