6. Nixon took them off the rails

and it would seem they never got back on. As bad as it sounds, it seems to me that so much more is left out. There is no mention of the Nixon-Mitchell run company that supplied the Contras with surplus Romanian weapons and uniforms during Iran Contra, or how good chunks of plundered S&L money also supported these efforts including Silverado funds (Neil Bush) in a series of bogus real estate deals that implicated a good number of Repug senators including a recent Presidential candidate (John McCain).

The cash for drugs for guns "Air America" bit, that ran out of military bases in Panama and prompted the invasion of Panama when Noriega stopped cooperatiing and threatened to spill the beans....

The training of many Central American "death squads" at the "School of the Americas".....

The violation of the civil rights of Americans involved in CISPES....

The extra-judicial executions of US reporters that went there to investigate (the old fashioned way - bullet to the skull)

It is all really bad stuff, and it is stunning how far it went. It iwll take a lifetime to declassify and unpack all of it, if it ever happens.
