    Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." - George Santayana.

    In association with justicevision.org, 911blogger.com will be putting some of their great documentary footage on the web. We're going to start with some footage of Gary Webb, a courageous journalist who exposed CIA connections to the crack cocaine epidemic in the United States. In this first video from December 1996, Webb was still employed by the San Jose Mercury News. You can read his original series which began his journey into Deep Politics, over at Narconews.com. This video, "Cocaine & the Contras", was filmed at the Midnight Special Bookstore in Santa Monica, CA, a few months after his story broke. He is accompanied by independent journalist, Robert Parry, whom Webb describes as a "pioneer" in this area. Robert Parry's website is Consortium News.com.

    Gary Webb's voice was silenced in 2004, and was ruled a suicide. However, his story will still be heard.
