    Gray Webb was a investigative journalist for the San Jose Mercury News. He wrote a book titled "Dark Alliance." In the book he indicated that the CIA had knowledge that the Contras of Nicaragua was smuggling cocaine into the United States to be sold and used as "crack" in order for them to finance their war against the Sandinistas. There was evidence suggesting that the CIA, if not directly involved were indirectly involved. In any case they knew and just stood by and didn't a thing about it.

    In 2004, Webb was writing another book giving more details and insight into the CIA and the U.S knowledge of the crack trade. He was found shot dead that year with two bullets in his head. Even though he had been battling depression, it was ruled a suicide. A movie had been made about his investigation titled "Kill the Messenger."

    Many people truly believe Gary Webb's "STAGED" suicide was not CIA contract operative stupidity and bungling but a message from The National Security Council via the CIA and the New York Times to any future starry eyed investigative reporters what to expect. The "OFFICIAL" autopsy report claims Gary Webb's first attempt to kill himself failed because the bullet lodged into his jaw then still having enough strength he shot himself again and expired. I wasn't there, just posting what was reported by parties on both sides of that fence.

    Americas Drug Control Policy in concert with all our local up to federal nationwide law enforcement narcotics units are the biggest proponents and supporters of illicit drug introduction into America bar none.
