Brown Bag Series: Drugs and the CIA With Nick Biddle, Phd
18 September, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Drug-running has been fundamental to CIA operations, strategy and funding throughout its history. The US Senate Kerry Committee Report of 1989 detailed CIA drug-running through the 1980s to fund terrorist wars in Nicaragua, Guatemala and El Salvador. Professor Alfred McCoy, University of Wisconsin, and Professor Peter Dale Scott, Emeritus University of California, have written extensive histories of CIA drug-running from the agency’s inception in 1947 to the present. The facts are known and so little regarded. This presentation will review CIA drug operations to ponder why the facts matter and are simultaneously ignored.
Nick Biddle, PhD. is a retired history professor and co-owner of ArtRageUs1 on Elliot St.. in Brattleboro.
