Dark Alliance author Gary Webb gave a fascinating talk on the evening of January 16, outlining the findings of his investigation of the CIA's connection to drug trafficking by the Nicaraguan contras. Approximately 300 people, crowded into the First United Methodist Church in Eugene, Oregon, listened with rapt attention as Webb detailed his experiences. Webb's riveting speech was followed by an intense question-and-answer session, during which he candidly answered questions about the "Dark Alliance" controversy, his firing from the San Jose Mercury News, and CIA/contra/cocaine secrets that still await revelation.

El autor Christopher Simpson discute su libro titulado Blowback: America's Recruitment of Nazis and its Effect on the Cold War (Retroceso: El Reclutamiento de Nazis por Parte de los Estados Unidos y su Efecto en la Guerra Fría). El interés de Simpson sobre el tema, inició durante el juicio de deportación de Otto Van Bolschwing, quien argumentó contra su deportación de los Estados Unidos al señalar que la CIA lo había introducido en los Estados Unidos. Simpson ha obtenido información a través de las demandas de la Ley de Libertad de Información de que Estados Unidos buscó a todos y cada uno de los agentes para combatir el “expansionismo” soviético al final de la Segunda Guerra Mundial. El servicio exterior comenzó a reclutar en los Interrogatorios de Prisioneros de Guerra, y ayudó a muchos criminales a evadir los juicios por crímenes de guerra. Simpson concluye que el servicio exterior, creó la Guerra Fría para asegurar el presupuesto del Pentágono después del final de la Segunda Guerra Mundial.
"...no one can look and not see this evidence. And yet it was not seen. It was not considered. I have to think that this failure to see and this failure to consider was deliberate."
--Vincent Salandria, 1966

Author Christopher Simpson discusses his book entitled Blowback: America's Recruitment of Nazis and its Effect on the Cold War. Simpson's interest in the topic started during the deportation trial of Otto Van Bolschwing, who argued against his deportation from the US by noting that the CIA had brought him into the US. Simpson has attained information through the Freedom of Information Act lawsuits that the United States sought any and all operatives to combat Soviet "expansionism" at the end of World War II. The foreign service began recruitment during POW debriefings, and helped many criminals avoid war crimes trials. The foreign service, Simpson concludes, created the Cold War to insure the Pentagon budget following the end of World War II

In 1968, when he was just a teenager, Steve found himself pulled into the justice system in Canada, and as happens all too often the system sort of took over and Steve, though he was brought in for a very minor crime, eventually ended up at a maximum security mental hospital for the criminally insane called Penetanguishene Mental Hospital, Oak Ridge Division. There he was subjected to a really bizarre series of "treatments". A Canadian judge has recently ruled these treatments should be more rightly called torture.
Steve Smith is the author of the book The Psychopath Machine , more info can be found at thepsychopathmachine.com. I was very glad to hear him tell his story.
I first heard about Steve in a Black Op Radio interview that he did in 2001, and a couple months ago I ran across some articles in Canada's Globe and Mail that a judge had made a ruling due to a class action lawsuit [mirror] from several patients that were at this facility that what happened there was indeed torture. This is a few paragraphs from the Globe and Mail, June 7, 2017, "Doctors tortured patients at Ontario mental-health centre, judge rules":
"Patients at a maximum security mental health facility in Ontario were tortured by medical doctors over a 17 year period in unethical and degrading human experiments a judge has ruled in a lawsuit. Techniques used on the patients between 1966 and 1983 included solitary confinement as treatment and as punishment, administration of hallucinogens and delirium producing drugs, including LSD, and brainwashing methods developed by the CIA according to Justice Paul Perrell of Ontario Superior Court of Justice."
"Some of the patients at Oak Ridge division of the Penetanguishene Mental Health Center in central Ontario had been charged with crimes such as rape, murder and child abuse and been found not guilty by reason of insanity. Others had simply been committed by their doctors. Oak Ridge doctors contended that with intensive therapy the patients could some day be freed. An estimated 1,260 patients spent time in the program between 1965 and 1979."
