Panama Deception | Coverup | Destination Nicaragua | Raw Footage
The Iran-Contra scandal was not an aberration - it was part of a pattern of abuses of power by a shadow government willing to subvert domestic and international law to ensure the United States' continued global dominance.
Coverup is an investigative documentary about world-wide covert activities backed by the U.S. Government. . .activities that were NOT revealed by the Iran-Contra Hearings of the U.S. Congress. It wades in where the official hearings were afraid to tread, revealing a tangled web of political leaders, international drug smugglers, weapons dealers, hostages, assassinations, the C.I.A. and the effect of covert U.S. foreign policy on people throughout the world.
Coverup includes interviews with Barbara Honegger, a member of the 1980 Reagan-Bush campaign team and Reagan White House policy analyst.
