In case you're wondering, yes, the CIA does more than just traffic drugs.
On November 15, 1996, there was a town meeting in Los Angeles on allegations of CIA involvement in drug trafficking. Former Los Angeles Police Narcotics Detective Mike Ruppert seized the opportunity to confront then CIA Director John Deutch.
Mike eventually put a bullet in his brain a few years back, and yes, it was a genuine suicide (this time anyway). I miss the man. Mike had a good heart and remarkable ethics. His troubles started when he began exposing government coverups and criminality. He would eventually lose everything and wind up living in a trailer on a friends land along with his dog. Mike started exploring a spiritual path and seemed to regain a foothold in his life, but apparently depression got the better of him. Mike was interviewed rather extensively for the 2009 film Collapse which i highly recommend.
