While Ronald Reagan was preaching freedom around the world here at home he was escalating a war on his own people better known as the failed war on drugs. While America's youth was just saying no or getting busted this sacred cow was incahoots with Iran , Manuel Noriega ,the Medellin Cocaine Cartel, Mercaneries , Arms smugglers , Drug smugglers , rogue CIA agents, the Contras , crack dealers, and just about every other nefarious individuals or groups than one can imagine. Ronald Reagan was a cold warrior first and a drug warrior second so in name of defeating communism he went to bed with major players in the international drug trade all the while he's leading a war on drug users at home. Pretty hypocritical isn't it basically we allowed the drugs to be imported then had our law enforcement bust the users. The good guys in this story are a young Senator named John Kerry and a Pulitzer Prize winning investigative reporter named Gary Webb. The bad guys are Reagan , Bush 41 , and their stooge Oliver North.
