the dark alliance - gary webb (pdf)

Though the combination of fringe religions and the
Contras may seem strange, partly declassified CIA records
show that the agency had evidence as far back as 1982
that there were unwholesome connections between
Meneses's drug ring, the FDN, and an unnamed religious
organization in the United States. According to a 1998 CIA
Inspector General's report, the CIA's Domestic Collection
Division picked up word in October 1982 that "there are
indications of links between (a U.S. religious organization)
and two Nicaraguan counter-revolutionary groups." The
heavily censored CIA cable said, "These links involve an
exchange in [the United States] of narcotics for arms."
