Kill the Messenger (2014)

In Archive, CIA, Drugs, Gary Webb, Nicaragua on January 17, 2015 at 1:18 AM



Based on the remarkable true story of Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Gary Webb. Webb stumbles onto a story which leads to the shady origins of the men who started the crack epidemic on the nation’s streets…and further alleges that the CIA was aware of major dealers who were smuggling cocaine into the U.S., and using the profits to arm rebels fighting in Nicaragua. Despite warnings from drug kingpins and CIA operatives to stop his investigation, Webb keeps digging to uncover a conspiracy with explosive implications. His journey takes him from the prisons of California to the villages of Nicaragua to the highest corridors of power in Washington, D.C. – and draws the kind of attention that threatens not just his career, but his family and his life.

  1. Hello,

    The guns for cocaine story was common knowledge when Reagan was President.

    I think the story is (or was) on Wikipedia. Guys with airplanes were paid by Reagan to take a planeload of guns to Nicaragua, trading them for Cocaine, bringing the Cocaine back and distributing it in California (and other places).

    One of the planes crashed and the story became public.

    It seems to me that the pilot of that plane that crashed moved on to be elected as one of our representatives in Washington DC.

    Its all crooked.

  3. The LA Times cruelly hounded Gary out of journalism, using libel to defame him. No journalist stood up to defend Webb. He was alone when he finally shot himself in the head,
    but a lot of career-worshiping cowards killed him.

    A real journalist rests in peace. Thank-you for your brave service to the nation, Mr.Webb.
