RickyRossTennisBefore “Freeway” Ricky Ross gained infamy as a $3 million-a-day Los Angeles crack dealer with hidden CIA support,he was headed to college on a tennis scholarship.

In the most explosive episode of RadioWHO yet, Ross gives host Guillermo Jimenez his definitive answer about the CIA’s motives to sponsor drug dealing. Was it just to support the Nicaraguan Contra rebels, or a plot to harm black Americans?

Ross rose to national infamy in 1996 after he featured prominently in investigative journalist Gary Webb’s “Dark Alliance”series, which unearthed the CIA’s involvement in drug dealing to help pay for the Contras.

Webb’s scoop would lead to hiseventual professional undoing and suicide, now the subject of the movie “Kill the Messenger”, starring Jeremy Renner.

Tune in now to RadioWHOto hear straight from the mouth of a man at the center of one of the CIA’s murkiest operations yet.

Sonny Bono was gonna have a congressional hearing about the CIA bringing cocaine into the country. As soon as he got back from his skiing trip. Alas he had an “accident”.

If it is true that the CIA is doing this, then the Americans (as noted from comments below!) should not treat this as mere entertainment, but stop the CIA. Currently the CIA crops up everywhere where there is something evil going on. Where is the demand for the CIA to disband and be reformed. How is it even that the CIA is run by a muslim, Brennan? This is really myopic of the americans to allow this to occur because history and current events show very clearly that muslims change sides in the heat of the battle. Honestly, Americans are going to be the cause of the next war they way they are helping the muslims to do their jihad on Russia with sanctions, in the hopes that Russia will do something rash and bomb Canada (while it is the jihadists doing it, and blaming Russia, just like they did with the Malaysian plane).

The CIA work for the people that make the money. The owners of the federal reserve.
