Crack Epidemic Fueled By CIA-Terrorist Funding
Oakdale, California — Sources in the truth-seeking communities sustain information about the crack epidemic, which began in the 80’s were deliberately caused by intervention of the CIA. Sources credit American investigative reporter Gary Webb for exposing the conspiracy in “Dark Alliance”, a series of articles he later published as a book. According to Webb, Nicaraguans linked to the CIA-backed Contras had smuggled the drug cocaine into the United States. Once smuggled, it was later distributed as crack cocaine in Los Angeles and the profits funneled back to the Contras. According to conspiracy theorists, it was “easier than having our tax money fund it”.
Webb also noted the CIA was well aware of the drug cocaine transactions and the large shipments of drugs into the U.S. by Contra staff. Because of the influx of Nicaraguan-supplied the drug cocaine, a widespread crack cocaine epidemic swept through many U.S. cities during the eighties. In order to sustain profits, the Reagan administration shielded inner-city drug dealers from prosecution to stimulate money for Contras. The shielding happened especially after Congress passed the Boland Amendment, which prohibited direct Contra funding. “Ironically, during the 80’s, Reagan maintained a hard anti-drug stance and preached some dopey “Just Say No” campaign across the nation. It’s a trip why the Iran-Contra scandal was an indictment against such thinking today.”
On April 17, 1986, the Reagan Administration released a report admitting some Contra-cocaine connections in 1984 and 1985. The three page report supplied arguments of the connections occurring at a time when rebels were “particularly hard pressed for financial support” because U.S. aid had severed.
The crack epidemic saw a surge of crack cocaine use in major cities across the United States between 1984 and the early 1990s, with a sharp increase in crime on an unprecedented scale. However, many conspiracy theorists believe the plan to fill up inner cities with crack cocaine and guns were known attempted as early as the sixties. Conspiracy theory sources think many civil rights activists, such as Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X, knew of the plot in advance. “Supposedly they had attempted to form an alliance, not only for economic justice, but also to remedy black families from the upcoming onslaught of drugs into their communities. Each one expected to expose the operations of the CIA and FBI in a public place may have resulted in the greatest and largest act of civil disobedience in American history.” Sources also believe Martin Luther King Jr.’s speech “Why I Am Opposed To The War In Vietnam” can also be interpreted as stopping the drug trade, as heroin smuggled through the caskets of soldiers coming back to America. “Those who speak out are often sedated in return.”
On December 10, 2004, Gary Webb was found dead from two gunshot wounds fired to the head in a self-inflicted suicide.
