Alexander Cockburn is a syndicated national columnist, whose work appears regularly in the Nation, NY Free Press, and LA Times, amongst others. Together with Jeffrey St. Clair, he is the editor of the online journal Alexander Cockburn is co-editor of the online journal Counterpunch and has authored and edited numerous books, including the best-selling Whiteout. Award-winning investigative journalist Jeffrey St. Clair is co-editor of CounterPunch and author of 11 books, including the best sellers Whiteout: the CIA, Drugs and the Press; Al Gore: a User's Manual; and Five Days That Shook the World. He lives in Oregon City, Oregon.

In their signature journalistic style, Alexander Cockburn and Jeffrey St. Clair batter the CIA on their record of drug dealing—from Laos and Nicaragua to the streets of Los Angeles. The US press has remained shamelessly silent on the matter, obscuring the agency and its association with gangsters, Nazis, and thugs for the last sixty years, enabling this criminality to persist.

This new edition includes updated information on the CIA's own Dark Alliance investigations and the expanded opium trade in Afghanistan since September 11.

Alexander Cockburn and Jeffrey St. Clair are editors of CounterPunch, the popular print and web journal.
