The CIA, the Mob and America’s Secret History
by Daniel Hopsicker
2001, Mad Cow Press
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.
