Former CIA Pilot Plumlee Says Reagan Administration Responsible for Death of DEA Agent

(LAS CRUCES , NM) - Robert Tosh Plumlee, a pilot who flew clandestine CIA flights, told Infowars today that Fox News, who interviewed him last September, is attempting to shift blame for the 1980s Contra resupply network to the CIA.

The network was the work of the Reagan administration, then Marine Col. Oliver North, and the NCS, Plumlee contends. The covert operation was in direct violation of the Boland Amendment, a legislative effort to prevent the United States government from funding and assisting the Contras, the mercenary group attempting to overthrow the Sandinista regime in Nicaragua in the early 1980s.

Fox News ran a story on roles played by the CIA and the Reagan administration in the Contra Affair after the release of Rafael Caro Quintero from prison this past August.

Quintero, a former Mexican drug lord responsible for founding the Guadalajara Cartel, was convicted of murdering DEA agent Enrique “Kiki” Camarena Salazar and others, including a journalist, in 1985.

Information received primarily from US authorities, the DEA, the White House, and the National Security council and forwarded to Mexican authorities played in a role in Camarena’s murder, Plumlee told Infowars in an effort to set the record straight.

Plumlee insists the CIA did not murder Camarena as a number of news outlets have reported.

Following an interview with Fox News, the network ran a story implying that the CIA was involved and played a part in the torture murder of Camarena and Plumlee was the CIA pilot who helped Quintero escape to Guatemala and then to Costa Rica.

“That was not the case,” Plumlee told Infowars.

Plumlee told author Rodney Stitch (Drugging America: A Trojan Horse) in 2005 that the CIA, the DEA, the FBI and the Senate Foreign Relations Committee were aware American government agencies were involved in shipping drugs into the United States from Central America to fund the Contra freedom fighters. Details on these illicit drug running operations were also exposed in the 1990s by San Jose Mercury News journalist Gary Webb, who later died under suspicious circumstances.
