The CIA’s Inspector General has launched an investigation into allegations that when Bill Clinton was Governor of Arkansas, the CIA used an isolated airstrip in Mena, Arkansas to ship arms illegally to the Nicaraguan Contras and deliver large shipments of cocaine to the U.S. The White House says the Mena story is manufactured by a right wing conspiracy industry, but the CIA is investigating the charges and is expected to deliver a report in late summer or early fall.
