by Nancy Spannaus

After their Boston effort foundered on a mistrial and an informal jury vote to acquit all defendants, the Justice Department is trying it all over again in Alexandria.

How Did Dukakis and the Democrats Lose?  

by Mel Klenetsky

Errata

Due to a confusion in bank names, an article on banks under investigation for drug-money laundering out of the October indictment against Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI), in Vol. 15, No. 45, page 67, EIR mistakenly misidentified Florida National Bank of Miami as the bank which handles the finances of the ADL Foundation, and has former Nugen Hand Director Donald Beasely on the board of directors. That bank is City National Bank of Miami. Florida National of Miami, however, has indeed found its records subpoenaed by the U.S. Customs Service, the Wall Street Journal reported Oct. 31, 1988, because two of the top cocaine runners indicted, Roberto Alcairo and Gonzalo Mora, used the bank to launder their money. The BCCI indictment named Alcairo as a major smuggler and money launderer, and describes Mora as heading the Medellín Cartel’s laundering operations in Florida, New York, and California.
