Drawing on exhaustive research and highly personal interviews with Webb's family, colleagues, supporters and critics, this book argues convincingly that Webb's editors betrayed him, despite mounting evidence that his stories were correct. By providing a probing examination of the one of the most important media scandals in recent memory, this book provides a gripping view of one of the greatest tragedies in the annals of investigative journalism.

Amazing and Depressing
Any additional comments?
This audiobook was pretty amazing, and pretty depressing at the same time. It seems that some folks in the government think that as long as one particular goal is being met, it's OK to destroy the rest of society.
This book is about the CIA helping the Contras sell drugs in the U.S. to buy weapons to overthrow a left leaning government in South America. Now it's my opinion that the U.S. should not meddle in other countries affairs to begin with, as it always, when the CIA is involved ends badly, and causes more harm than would be caused if we had simply done nothing.
In this case this was a government that the local people wanted, but the West didn't like. So the U.S. supported right wing death squads and helped them sell crack in the U.S. Starting the crack epidemic that destroyed inner cities.
This didn't help the U.S. in any way nor did it help the people of any other country.
