Dark Alliance

 They Don't Want You to Know

Gary Webb (August 31, 1955 – December 10, 2004) was a Pulitzer prize-winning American investigative journalist.

Webb was best known for his 1996 "Dark Alliance" series of articles written for the San Jose Mercury News and later published as a book. In the three-part series, Webb investigated Nicaraguans linked to the CIA-backed Contras who had allegedly smuggled cocaine into the U.S. Their smuggled cocaine was distributed as crack cocaine in Los Angeles, with the profits funneled back to the Contras. Webb also alleged that this influx of Nicaraguan-supplied cocaine sparked, and significantly fueled, the widespread crack cocaine epidemic that swept through many U.S. cities during the 1980s. According to Webb, the CIA was aware of the cocaine transactions and the large shipments of drugs into the U.S. by Contra personnel.

Contras in Nicaragua

 The Iran Contra affair was the blowback from a pair of American backed right wing dictatorships that fell in the late 70's during the Presidency of Jimmy Carter. The revolutions in both Iran and Nicaragua brought to power governments not the liking of the United States. Both became the two ends of one of the biggest scandals of the Reagan years.
In the case of Nicaragua the hostility towards Sandanistas was so great that Ronald Reagan created an army of terrorists to try and overthrow them. The first part of this clip features an interview with Edgar Chamorro. Who was one of the original Contra leaders recruited by the CIA. He talks about his disillusionment with the brutal methods being used in the war. The second part of the video concerns a CIA inspired bombing at a press conference being held by Eden Pastora a genuine hero of the Nicaraguan revolution who turned against the Sandanistas. Since he had a genuine following in the country, unlike the Contra's, the US wanted to co-opt Pastora but he wouldn't cooperate. The explosion killed an American reporter and wounded eight others but missing their intended target Mr. Pastora.

Col. North's handwritten notebooks and memoranda show that North and other U.S. officials were repeatedly informed about the Contras' ties to trafficking of drugs from Latin America into the United States and that airplanes from the U.S. used to supply arms to the Contras were being flown back with Contras personnel aboard carrying cocaine into the United States. The matter was further examined in the 1997 report of the US Department of Justice Inspector General, where the main question under investigation was whether CIA was instrumental in creating the crack cocaine epidemic in Los Angeles, and where evidence was presented of patronizing by CIA of drug trafficking to Los Angeles, California.
