Duane 'Dewey' Clarridge and Felix Rodriguez. Clair's story is the Christic Institute's story.
Martha Honey, as some of you might remember, was married to journalist Tony Avirgan who was injured during the bombing of a press conference scheduled by contra leader and drug dealer Eden Pastora at a remote camp in La Penca, Nicaragua. It was Avirgan and Honey who filed the initial suit, with the Christic Institute providing counsel.

A dozen people were injured and several killed, including an American journalist. The Christic Institute had deposed Robert Owen on behalf of Avirgan and Honey and had received the memos as part of that deposition. Christopher Hitchens now shits his Dacron at the very mention of Clinton's name. As one Arkansas police officer wrote in his report of infamous drug pilot Barry Seal's operation in August of "Every time Bari sic Seal flies a load of dope for the US govt. If that might have been a remote possibilty, the Christic Institute certainly had the goods.
As a member of the staff of an independent news program, I made a number of trips to the Institute's run-down row house offices on North Capital street with the Capitol looming hazily some 25 blocks in the distance.

The Institute was very open and accommodating with requests. They supplied us with reams of information and documents. The Christic Institute's doors and files were open to anyone. Dan Sheehan would call just to clear up a minor point.
The Christic Institute as well as CISPES were grass roots organization, a fact missed or dismissed by the airheads and wannabees like former Nation columnist David Corn and many others in the alternative press. The Christic Institute too had nothing to hide; the press and the courts had to do that for them. Many years' worth of CIA denials, much of it under oath to Congress, were sunk. Hitz's admissions made fools of some of the most prominent names in US journalism and vindicated others that had been ruined.
Particularly resonant was the case of the San Jose Mercury News, which published a sensational series on CIA involvement in the smuggling of cocaine into black urban neighborhoods, and then under pressure conspired in the destruction of its own reporter, Gary Webb. Clair finally put the whole story together, from the earliest days, when the CIA's institutional ancestors cut a deal with America's premier gangster and drug trafficker, Lucky Luciano.
We travel to little-known airports in Costa Rica and Arkansas. We hear from drug pilots and accountants from the Cali Cartel. We learn of DEA agents whose careers were ruined because they tried to tell the truth.
