Gary Webb’s revenge: the truth about US government involvement in drug trade continues to leak out

Gary Webb’s revenge: the truth about US government involvement in drug trade continues to leak out:

The revenge of the just is that eventually the truth gets told….But the truth remains true, while lies remain lies. So, the CIA’s own Inspector General Fred Hitz largely substantiated Webb’s general finding. And even so, the major media–preferring to damn themselves in the afterlife as they have damned themselves in the present one–refuse to give Webb the honor he is due. I would not want to be Howard Kurtz when the time comes to settle the bill with God. And so truth, working quietly and patiently, continues to heap coals on their heads.

    Gary Webb is well remembered. It is sad that there are so many reporters died by exposing or getting too close to the truth about the CIA.

    Free press, my eye. How can you be free if telling the truth gets you killed? Or ‘suicided’ as the case may be.
