Most of us are well aware of the Oliver North involvement in the Iran Contra situation.
The effort to continue smuggling cocaine was ramped up during the governorship of Boy Clinton in Arkansas at a little know manufactured airport built for the operation in Mena, Arkansas.
Small airport in Mena, out of the way population 6000 people. WHY?
Later the operation expanded to El Salvador.
DEA agent Cele Castillo knew all about Contra Drug Smuggling at Ilopango Air Base in El Salvador; GHW Bush most certainly did not want to discuss it at a 1986 meeting!
Only a completely ignorant individual would believe that Hillary wasn’t involved.

“If the people were to ever find out what we have done, we would be chased down the streets and lynched.”– George Bush, cited in the June, 1992 Sarah McClendon Newsletter
George Bush with legendary CIA agent Felix Rodriguez a.k.a. “Mr. Gomez” who ran the Mexican portion of the Iran-Contra guns and drug running operation.
“I have put thousands of Americans away for tens of thousands of years for less evidence for conspiracy with less evidence than is available against Ollie North and CIA people. . . . I personally was involved in a deep-cover case that went to the top of the drug world in three countries. The CIA killed it.”

“The connections piled up quickly. Contra planes flew north to the U.S., loaded with cocaine, then returned laden with cash. All under the protective umbrella of the United States Government. My informants were perfectly placed: one worked with the Contra pilots at their base, while another moved easily among the Salvadoran military officials who protected the resupply operation. They fed me the names of Contra pilots. Again and again, those names showed up in the DEA database as documented drug traffickers.
“When I pursued the case, my superiors quietly and firmly advised me to move on to other investigations.”

Powder Burns, 1992
“The Subcommittee found that the Contra drug links included:
- Involvement in narcotics trafficking by individuals associated with the Contra movement.
- Participation of narcotics traffickers in Contra supply operations through business relationships with Contra organizations.
- Provision of assistance to the Contras by narcotics traffickers, including cash, weapons, planes, pilots, air supply services and other materials, on a voluntary basis by the traffickers.
- Payments to drug traffickers by the US State Department of funds authorized by the Congress for humanitarian assistance to the Contras, in some cases after the traffickers had been indicted by federal law enforcement agencies on drug charges, in others while traffickers were under active investigation by these same agencies.”

“I really take great exception to the fact that 1,000 kilos came in, funded by US taxpayer money.”
DEA official Anabelle Grimm, during a 1993 interview on a CBS-TV “60 Minutes” segment entitled “The CIA’s Cocaine.” The 1991 CIA drug-smuggling event Ms. Grimm described was later found to be much larger. A Florida grand jury and the Wall Street Journal reported it to involve as much as 22 tons.
