I invited Scott Horton on to the show to talk about two chapters of history where even the established history is too crazy to believe: the Iran-Contra Affair and the CIA’s support for the Mujahideen in 1980s Afghanistan. We also discuss the Iraq Wars, the Iraq-Iran War, Gary Webb, some CIA drug running, and touch on the John Birch Society.
