Iran Contra-Connection: Secret Teams and Covert Operations in the Reagan Era (Hardcover)
This explosive book lays bare the personalities and institutional relations behind the headlines. It goes beyond the recent events to discern the roots of contemporary U.S. covert activity within the past two decades. The Iran-Contra Connection delves in to the details of CIA and extra-CIA operations, including drug-trafficking, gun-running, government-toppling, and assassination. The Iran-Contra scandal is not merely a plan gone awry, the authors argue, but a consistent outgrowth of a long tradition of U.S. covert activity- from the Bay of Pigs invasion teams to the NSC organizational team; from the CIA and the World Anti-Communist League to the Israeli connection and the State Department.
