Our weekly documentary film curated by the editorial team at 21WIRE.

The following is Part 2 of a 5 part series which deals with the Deep State

“The Iran-Contra affair provides the public with their first glimpse of the secret National Security State, leading on from the Watergate scandal in the 1970s. This episode examines the history of organised crime networks – Mafia’s and gangs – to show the close relationship between them and secret intelligence agencies, as well as the creation of paramilitaries tied to executive arms of the United States government. With these criminal networks trafficking drugs and weapons, the programme goes on to investigate how the ‘War on Drugs’ was instigated to actually serve as further protection of the established criminal networks – the perfect cover for more intervention around all parts of the globe, though especially throughout South America. The subsequent attacks on whistleblowers are also documented.”
