This is the sto­ry of Bar­ry Seal, the biggest drug smug­gler in Amer­i­can his­to­ry, who died in a hail of bul­lets with George Bush’s pri­vate phone num­ber in his wal­let...

The Wall Street Jour­nal called Bar­ry Seal “the ghost haunt­ing the White­wa­ter probe.” He was far more than that.

Based on a 3‑year long inves­ti­ga­tion, Daniel Hop­sick­er dis­cov­ered the ‘secret his­to­ry’ the Amer­i­can Press was afraid to tell… Seal, the most suc­cess­ful drug smug­gler in Amer­i­can his­to­ry, was also — and not coin­ci­den­tal­ly — a life­long CIA agent, one of the most famous who ever lived, active in every­thing from the Bay of Pigs to Water­gate to the Kennedy Assas­si­na­tion. And all this before becom­ing famous for import­ing tons of cocaine through Mena, Arkansas in the Scan­dal that won’t go away.

The sto­ry of Bar­ry Seal is the sto­ry of what hap­pens when guys we pay to pro­tect us — CIA guys — go into busi­ness with guys we’re pay­ing them to pro­tect us against.

“Made” guys. Mob­sters… Orga­nized Crime.

You’ll dis­cov­er why a pho­to­graph tak­en by a night club pho­tog­ra­ph­er in a Mex­i­co City nightspot ten months before the Kennedy assas­si­na­tion holds the key to the shad­owy orga­ni­za­tion respon­si­ble for the mas­sive cor­rup­tion in Bill Clin­ton’s Arkansas twen­ty years lat­er.

Com­ment­ing on the CIA’s affair with the Mafia, L.B.J.’s press sec­re­tary, Bill Moy­ers said, “Once we decide that any­thing goes, any­thing can come home to haunt us.”

After you’ve read Bar­ry and ‘The Boys’ you’ll under­stand what he meant.
