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

Front Cover
Mad Cow Press, 2006 - History - 457 pages
Based on the author’s three-year-long investigation, this account exposes the story of lifelong CIA agent Barry Seal, the most successful drug smuggler in American history, who died in a hail of bullets with George Bush’s private phone number in his wallet. Revealing Seal’s active role in many of the nation’s most notorious scandals--including the Bay of Pigs, the Kennedy assassination, Watergate, and the Iran-Contra Affair--and featuring primary documents previously unseen by the public, this unique history explores the Faustian bargains made by the U.S. government and the secret pasts of some of today’s politicians.
