(Arms trafficking,  Third rail topic)Rdf-entity.pngRdf-icon.png
The CIA's efforts to obscure evidence of its arms deals can be grasped from looking at the Arms for Libya case.

The CIA traffickings in weapons, as part of both off- and on-the books operations.

 

Examples

Page nameDescription
Arms for LibyaAround 20 tonnes of C-4 plastic explosive, training in bomb making, together with thousands of rifles, handguns & other weapons sold by a CIA operative to Muammar Gaddaffi's Libya in the late 1970s - early 1980s. Then "the biggest arms-dealing case in U.S. history", still lacking its own page on Wikipedia as of 2020.
Arms for Libya 2.0A replay of the original Arms For Libya, in that a US deep state arms dealer was charged with selling weapons to Libya. However, in contrast to the original case, Marc Turi had a secret ace in the hole which caused the USDOJ to drop all charges and hush the affair up.
