Dark Alliance: The CIA, the Contras, and the Crack Cocaine Explosion

by Gary Webb Author

Journalist Gary Webb died because he broke the story of the CIA’s drug pipeline from Latin America to Los Angeles, as well as the Reagan’s administration use of crack money to buy munitions for the Contra guerrillas. This is also the book that immortalized Freeway Ricky Ross (the dealer, not the rapper) and exposed the unspeakably corrupt practice of asset forfeiture for drug offenders. This expanded edition offers new documentary evidence to the compulsively readable core story.
