CIA Involvement in Cocaine Trafficking/Distribution in America, CIA Director Takes Questions
How Crack Funded a CIA War: Gary Webb Interview on the Contras and Ronald Reagan (1996) https://youtu.be/WMbEhP2irDM
Probably the last time a sitting CIA Director took questions at a town hall meeting. Director John Deutch spoke to central Los Angeles residents at a November 15, 1996 town hall meeting to address allegations that the CIA sold drugs in Los Angeles in order to finance covert operations in Central America. Former LAPD Narcotics Detective Mike Ruppert questions the director at 58:50. Crack cocaine was created around the same time of the CIA operations.
I highly recommend people to watch the full video.
