Compromised is the true
story of the Faustian pact that Bill Clinton made as governor of Arkansas. It
tells how his unbridled political ambitions and his pledge to create jobs for
Arkansas led him to compromise his ideals in exchange for support for his
presidential candidacy in 1992.
By selling out politically
to the Reagan-Bush administration, by giving the Agency free rein to operate a
secret training base near the tiny western Arkansas town of Mena, and by looking
the other way as Arkansas factories turned out untraceable weapons parts for the
Nicaraguan Contra "freedom fighters," the young governor helped create an
operation that laundered untold millions of dollars and that enriched Clinton's
political friends and helped finance his campaign fund.
connection became Clinton's darkest secret, and only now is the tiniest shaft of
light being shed on what has become known as the Whitewater Scandal. Coauthor
Terry Reed, who helped train Contra pilots in rural Arkansas, became the first
person to pull back the shroud on the "Arkansas Connection" long before most
people ever heard of Clinton cronies like Webb Hubbell, Clinton's former
associate U.S. attorney-general, who became the first major figure to plead
guilty in an ever-widening investigation that is confirming Reed's disclosures.
Former National Security Advisor Bud McFarlane also corroborates Reed's
revelation that former spymaster George Bush was in the center of the
Iran-Contra loop, and he, like Reed, paints Bush as a cold-hearted powermonger
bent on wrestling the White House away from Ronald Reagan.
Reed, who was recruited
into the Arkansas operation by Oliver North, reveals in this eyewitness account
how the "black operations" in Arkansas worked, from the training of Contra
pilots and the manufacture of weapons parts -- all in violation of a
congressional ban on Contra aid -- to the airdrops of cash into Arkansas by CIA
operative Barry Seal. Seal disclosed to Reed that more than $9 million a week
was dropped from planes onto secret drop zones and later laundered through an
investment banking firm who president had close ties with Clinton.
