Many people had a sneaky suspicion about the CIA during the 1980s, in terms of drugs and drug trafficking. Of course, many of those who believed this were shunned as conspiracy theorists. However, they turned out to be right! Although it is a complex operation to understand, it is 100% true. During the 1980s the CIA were part of a drug smuggling ring that involved a Latin American Guerilla Army, along with the Bloods and the Crips (street gangs in Los Angeles). Gary Webb, an award winning journalist, first published his theory on CIA involvement in his book, ‘Dark Alliance: The CIA, the Contras and the Crack Cocaine Explosion’, back in 1996.
