CIA (Cocaine Importing Agency): The Real D-Boys

While the U.S. federal government has been waging a phony and hypocritical "war on drugs" as an easy way to increase repression in inner cities and confiscate millions of dollars in private assets through unconstitutional forfeiture laws in order to fund its burgeoning police state, it has also been an active participant in the illegal drug trade, using public resources to bring heroin and cocaine into American inner cities at least since the 1960's.

One scandal involved the Central Intelligence Agency selling crack cocaine in South Central Los Angeles in order to fund the U.S. covert war against the people of Nicaragua.

Gary Webb, the reporter who single-handedly broke the story, wrote an article that traces the CIA's west coast crack supply network from the street level backward through the CIA to Central and South America.

Former CIA agent David MacMichel explained the inherent relationship between CIA activity in Latin America and drug trafficking: "Once you set up a covert operation to supply arms and money, it's very difficult to separate it from the kind of people who are involved in other forms of trade, and especially drugs. There is a limited number of planes, pilots and landing strips. By developing a system for supply of the Contras, the US built a road for drug supply into the US."

"At night I can't sleep--we livin' in Hell
First they give us the work then they throw us in jail
Road trip...yea I'm trafficking the white
Please Lord don't let me go to jail tonight...

Just because we stack paper and we ball outrageous,
Them alphabet boys gotta us under surveillance.
(Like animals) They lock us in cages
The same nigga that's a star when you put 'em on stages."
