I love how the headlined says “exposed” but later in the article, it says he was disproved but I’m getting ahead of myself.
Gary Webb, the reporter who accused the CIA of selling crack on the streets of L.A., was found dead of a “self-inflicted” gunshot wound to the head. I put self-inflicted in quotes because I’m sure the TFH’ers will be mourning one of their own by claiming the CIA assassinated him.
The most telling quote is this…
Major parts of Webb’s reporting were later discredited by other newspaper investigations. An investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department found no evidence of a connection between the CIA and the drug traffickers.
So let me tell it to you straight kids. The CIA did not sell crack to fund the Contras or to keep the black man down. Thanks to Mr. Webb we have one more excuse for people not to take personal responsibility. That will be his legacy.
