You can study once-classified documents at the National Security Archive @George Washington Univ

For years, I have tapped NSA to locate news articles, government reports and court documents for matters involving global terrorism and government corruption, especially in regard to BCCI, Iran Contra and CIA drug running.

This is one of the greatest collections of unbiased information any historian, researcher, government activist, or engaged citizen can access. Too few of our fellow citizens bother to tap into this amazing source of government information.

For example:
The Contras, Cocaine, and Covert Operations

National Security Archive Electronic Briefing Book No. 2
For more information contact:
202/994-7000 or nsarchiv@gwu.edu

Washington, D.C. An August, 1996, series in the San Jose Mercury News by reporter Gary Webb linked the origins of crack cocaine in California to the contras, a guerrilla force backed by the Reagan administration that attacked Nicaragua's Sandinista government during the 1980s. Webb's series, "The Dark Alliance," has been the subject of intense media debate, and has focused attention on a foreign policy drug scandal that leaves many questions unanswered.

This electronic briefing book is compiled from declassified documents obtained by the National Security Archive, including the notebooks kept by NSC aide and Iran-contra figure Oliver North, electronic mail messages written by high-ranking Reagan administration officials, memos detailing the contra war effort, and FBI and DEA reports. The documents demonstrate official knowledge of drug operations, and collaboration with and protection of known drug traffickers. Court and hearing transcripts are also included.
