Documentary Of The Week: Guns, Drugs And The CIA

Written by

Econintersect: PBS Frontline presented a program approximately 30 years ago "Guns, Drugs, & the CIA" researching charges that the CIA was involved in (or actively condoning) the drug trade, especially opium. While CIA officials vigorously denied any involvement, the Frontline staff presented statements from many individuals who claimed to be participants. Hat tip to Roger Erickson for referring this to our attention.

We have not determined the exact date that this program aired, but it appears from the estimated ages of recognizable personages, from voice recordings presented, and from the vintage of automobiles to have been sometime during Reagan's second term (1985-1988).
