*Narco News Declares Augusto Pinochet Narco of the Year 2000. "Like the Drug War, this man was imposed by the US Government... Like the Drug War, this man has committed untold atrocities... This man is a known Narco-Kingpin, but few speak of that fact..." Chilean dictator and mass murderer helped into power in 1973 with the aid of the USA.

"Under a 1991 law exempting them from many congressional and White House restrictions, American special operations forces have established military ties in at least 110 countries, unencumbered by public debate, effective civilian oversight or the consistent involvement of senior U.S. foreign affairs officials. The law, Section 2011 of Title 10 of the U.S. code, ..."

*9-1999. The South's Special Forces. By Michael Steinberg (posted 9/99). Portland Free Press. "However, in 1991 a bland sounding piece of Pentagon sponsored legislation--Section 2011 of Title 10 of the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations--changed all that. The law allowed U.S. Special Forces to be deployed in foreign countries if their primary purpose was to receive rather than give training there. Perhaps most significantly, this legislation largely exempted Special Forces on these missions from [laws preventing their] training with known human rights violators." Some history: "7th Special Forces Group. The 7th's webpage ... During the early '80s the unit `drafted the initial plan for U.S. military trainers in El Salvador' and `played a critical role in helping the Salvadorean military grow ... to a counterinsurgency force of 55,000 men under arms'."

According to figures assembled by the human rights office of the Catholic Archdiocese in San Salvador, in the period between 1980 to 1989, government-sponsored or government-assisted death squads killed 41,048 citizens [in El Salvador]. The equivalent figure for the left-wing guerillas, whom the US sought to defeat, was 776, including kidnappings."

Henry Kissinger. [TopLink]

*5-2004. Contra-Intelligence on Oliver North - by Celerino Castillo 3rd: Drugwar.com
"North was brought into the National Security Council staff in August 1981. One of the first assignments was to serve as the NSC staff liaison to the Kissinger Commission on Central America beginning in the summer of 1983. After October 1984, Vice President Bush designated North to coordinate the re-supply operations for the Contra network. At the same time, he was involved in various schemes to ransom U.S. hostages being held in Lebanon, by providing arms to Iran."

*12-2003. Kissinger approved Argentinian 'dirty war'. Dec. 6, 2003, Guardian (UK). "He [Kissinger] has already been implicated in war crimes committed during his term in office, notably in connection with the 1973 Chilean coup. ... According to a verbatim transcript of a meeting on October 7 1976, Mr Kissinger reassured the [Argentinian] foreign minister that he had US backing in whatever he did. ... tacit approval of the US, on which it was dependent for financial and military aid. The junta, which ruled Argentina from 1976 to 1983, fell after the military's defeat in the Falklands war. During its period in power an estimated 30,000 people may have been arrested, tortured and killed."

*The Memory Hole > "Kissinger Declassified" by Lucy Komisar. 1976 Kissinger meeting with Pinochet. Death Squads and torture. Elected leaders overthrown. Freely-elected socialists are in power in many nations, and to U.S. Republicans all socialists are communists, and thus deserving of Pinochet-style overthrow (1973) of elected leaders, and torture and murder of thousands. Allende was a socialist, and he was elected in a free election in Chile. The CIA also helped overthrow progressive elected leaders in Iran and Guatemala in 1953 and 1954.

"The DEA only admitted that Chambers had an extensive arrest record after Dean Steward, a federal public defender in California, sued the agency for Chambers' records. The agency fought him for two years before a court ordered Chambers' records disclosed. Steward says the drug agency had a lot to hide. 'Chambers has been arrested 16 times - they admit that now,' Steward says. 'I'm a defense attorney, and I don't know many people who have been arrested that many times. And many of his cases have been fraud-related, things that go to his credibility.' "

"In the name of fighting drugs, the CIA financed new military intelligence networks there in 1991. ... they incorporated illegal paramilitary groups into their ranks and fostered death squads. These death squads killed trade unionists, peasant leaders, human-rights, journalists, and other suspected 'subversives.' ... In May 1991, Colombia completely reorganized its military intelligence networks 'based on the recommendations made by the commission of U.S. military advisers,' according to the secret Colombian reorganization order, which Human Rights Watch made public in 1996. ... The secret Colombian order instructed the military to maintain plausible deniability from the networks and their crimes. Retired military officers and other civilians were to act as clandestine liaisons between the networks and the military commanders. All open communications 'must be avoided.' There 'must be no written contracts with informants or civilian members of the network; everything must be agreed to orally.' And the entire chain of command 'will be covert and compartmentalized, allowing for the necessary flexibility to cover targets of interest.' Facts about the new intelligence networks became known only after four former agents in Barrancabermeja began testifying in 1993 about the intelligence network there. What compelled them to come forward? Each said the military was actively trying to kill them in order to cover up the network and its crimes. By then the military had 'disappeared' four other ex-agents in an attempt to keep the network and its operations secret."

Emphasis added.


The Real Drug Lords. This is a great little article by William Blum called the Real Drug Lords. A quick overview of the primary spots where the CIA has engaged in working with traffickers for one reason or another. Simple and to the point.

Cocaine pipeline financed rebels. This site has all of the original Webb articles as they appeared in August 1996. Webb had so many facts there to see it is hard to imagine how the CIA, in the person John Deutch, then Director of Central Intelligence, could expect the citizens of South Central LA, and the rest of the country as well, to believe his denials. In retrospect, it is not hard to see at all, what with the propaganda machine

The Contras, Cocaine, and Covert Operations. This site has an incredible number of official documents outlining the government's knowledge that it was working with drug traffickers. Another large site, with lots and lots of material. Spend some more time here.

CIA's Drug Confession. An in depth look into the CIA/Contra/Cocaine connections, and the resultant report by the CIA Inspector General, by Robert Parry. Parry was one of the very first to try and report the allegations that were flying around in the eighties about the Contras supporting the war in Nicaragua with the proceeds of drugs, buying arms and supplies, often using drugs themselves as currency, to pay for the arms that Oliver North and friends were shipping South.

Anti-Drug Unit of C.I.A.. Sent a Ton of Cocaine to U.S. in 1990 New York Times article about a cooperative effort between a Venezuelan anti-drug unit and the CIA that shipped a ton of cocaine into the USA., after the CIA had requested permission of the DEA to let a ton of cocaine walk after hitting the streets in the USA. Hippie dippy site, but great article.

TOP SECRET CIA DRUG SMUGGLING OPERATIONS. Useful, short and sweet, a listing of some fairly recent CIA drug operations, with accompanying affidavits and documents.

ALLEGATIONS OF CONNECTIONS BETWEEN CIA. This is the official site of the CIA, so enter at your own risk. Here you can get the entire Volume II on the Allegations of Connections Between CIA and the Contras in Cocaine Trafficking to the United States, the Contra story. Loads of double speak and misdirection here, but it is fascinating to see how they try to turn a phrase, and twist the truth.

CIA Report on Contra-Cocaine Connection Contains Curiosities, Contra-dictions and Omissions. Here one can get two articles on CIA/Contra/Cocaine connections, one on the CIA's report, Volume 1, and the other testimony by Rep. Maxine Waters on what she has discovered while looking into the reports of CIA drug trafficking.

CIA, Justice Dept. Face Drug War's Victims. A look at the lawsuits that have been filed against the CIA and the DoJ, in 6 States so far,in 1999, on behalf of anyone hurt by the cocaine 'epidemic'. The more the merrier, so take a look.

For more information, see the CIA-drug internet site:

*The CIA & Drugs. This site is a very precise layout of various CIA involvements with numerous drug traffickers. The emphasis is heavy on the CIA's, and the US government' s own admissions, and also on the investigations of a number of former government agents from the DEA, the CIA, and others. The evidence is overwhelming. One of the very best of this type of site. No theory here. Lots of links.
