"Terrell later became disenchanted with the U.S. government and the Contras because of widespread corruption, drug dealing and the skimming of contributions. Sickened by the slaughter of innocent Miskito Indians, he joined their ranks and helped them defend their native lands and families from the crossfire stoked by the U.S. government." "Furious with Terrell's activities, the Honduran government expelled him at gunpoint. As he re-emerged in the United States, a clandestine group of intelligence officials in Washington, known as Internal Command and Control (InComCon), used him to tunnel secret information to the national media. From 1986 to 1988 Terrell released to the press information designed by InComCon to embarrass and expose the Reagan-Bush Administration. This information was so accurate and damaging, that five days before Attorney General Edwin Meese revealed the first details of the Iran-Contra scandal, Terrell provided the New York Times and other news media the exact same information." "On national television Terrell exposed Oliver North's illegal support of the Contras, opening up the investigation of North's secret and illegal private war in Latin America. North returned the fire, and initiated a private vendetta to discredit Terrell, putting him at the top of the first White House enemies list since the Nixon Administration."--Jacket.
