I have to consider Red Cocaine blatant intentional disinformation. I wonder how much the CIA paid this guy to write this. It actually includes a glowing introduction by former deputy director for intelligence of the CIA Ray Cline. It also heaps praise on the scumbag and Marijuana witchhunter Harry Anslinger throughout the book. But the basic gist here is that the drug trade in America is a Communist plot and that the commies control the Lions share of the illegal trade trade in America. Their plan is that drugs would demoralize America and then the commies could step in and take over America. Ha ha! Most of this information supposedly came from a former Soviet Union General named Jan Sejna that defected to the United States in 1968.

Its pretty well documented at this point that the CIA smuggled Heroin into the United States using the CIA front Air America and that they more or less created the crack cocaine plague of the 1980s mainly in order to raise money for the Contras. Like I said all of this is very well documented in various books. Gary Webbs (who was probably murdered by the CIA) Dark Alliance and former DEA agent Cellie Castillos Powderburns are good places to start. I'd also recomend a book called Dope Inc. that was put out by the Larouche organization.

Liz LaRouche ran for president in the US Labor Party. "Labor" in the title is a dead giveaway to the what kind of politics one expected to find there. It certainly wasn't Jeffersonian but he used to drop the names of the Founders to attract followers. LaRouche used patriotism much like Roger Baldwin, the founder of the ACLU used the flag: to attract dupes.
