This explosive book lays bare the full details of current events,exposing the personalities and institutional relations behind the headlines.It goes beyond the specific events of the recent period to discern the rootsof contemporary U.S. covert activity in the history of the past two decades.It delves into the details of CIA and extra-CIA operations including drug-trafficking, gun-running, government-toppling, and assassination.The authors argue that the Iran-Contra scandal is not merely a plangone awry, but a consistent outgrowth of a long tradition of covert U.S.activities. From the Bay of Pigs invasion teams to the NSC organizationalteam; from the CIA and the World Anti-Communist League to the Israeliconnection and State Department; this is the full story, unfettered byconcerns of "damage control.""The Iran-Contra Connection" is as disturbing as "The Tower Report" isconsoling. This extraordinary book narrates a frightening, shocking story thatshakes the foundations of the republic.—Richard Falk, from the Preface
