Barry & 'the Boys' : The CIA, the Mob and America's Secret History

a book by Daniel Hopsicker



The Scandal the White House Feared Most WASN'T Whitewater...It was Mena.

The Wall Street Journal called Barry Seal "the ghost haunting the Whitewater probe." Based on a 3-year long investigation, Daniel Hopsicker discovered the 'secret history' the American Press was afraid to tell: Seal, the most successful drug smuggler in American history, was also-and not coincidentally-a lifelong CIA agent, one of the most famous who ever lived, active in everything from the Bay of Pigs... to the Kennedy Assassination.

The story of Barry Seal is America's secret history... of what happens when guys we pay to protect us--CIA guys--go into business with guys we're paying them to protect us against.."Made" guys. Mobsters...Organized Crime.

Ripping the 'official story' on the so-called "Clinton Scandals" to shreds, "Barry and 'the boys'" breaks the biggest scoop of all about the Arkansas Drug Connection: where the money went. And goes...

Did the big-time "players" in small 'backwards' Arkansas--Bill Clinton, Vince Foster, Jackson Stephens, Jim Blair, Don Tyson--stand idly by while Barry Seal made billions of dollars importing cocaine through their state? Or were the "goings-on in Mena" of Barry and 'the boys' just the continuation of... 'business as usual?'

America's Secret History-Revealed:

Commenting on the CIA's affair with the Mafia, L.B.J.'s press secretary, Bill Moyers said, "Once we decide that anything goes, anything can come home to haunt us." After you've read "Barry and 'the boys'" you'll understand what he meant. The author was the Executive Producer of a business news show airing on NBC when, while shooting a feature story in Arkansas during production of the pilot for a new show he became aware that, in the words of one top federal law enforcement official, "Things ain't always been jes' right 'round here."
