This is one of the best books ever written in modern American politics – covers the murder of CIA drug smuggler Barry Seal
Excellent book and a must buy for any journalist, historian or person with a deep interest in modern American politics.
It is not comforting to know that the American government/CIA has been involved in the drug trade (heroin, cocaine & I am sure marijuana for decades (some periods much more so than others).
And it is most definitely not comforting to conclude that high level American officials murdered prominent CIA drug smuggler Barry Seal on February 19, 1986, to keep a lid on Iran-Contra, but that is exactly what happened. Google “Jeb Bush Barry Seal Murder 1986 Oliver North” to learn more.
