Drugs, Armies, and the CIA in Central America, originally pub-lished in hardback in 1991 and first issued in paper in 1992, reiterates their contention that . intelligence agencies have readily and willfully sacrificed drug con-trol efforts in Latin America when they conflicted with perceived national security interests.
