In this episode, we look at the alleged CIA drug smuggling ring operating out of Mena, Arkansas in the 1980s and 90s. Barry Seal, Oliver North and three of the most recent U.S. presidents all show up in connection to this sleepy little town and the shameful crimes surrounding it.  The episode is a great follow up to our previous offering on Gary Webb and the origins of the crack epidemic of the early 1980’s.
