I wrote “Barry & the boys” almost ten years ago I had no idea
that the story of America’s most famous drug smuggler would shortly
have relevance to the biggest event of the still-young 21st
Century, the 9/11 attack.
But it did. And
it still does.
When a Lear-jet
belonging to the owner of the flight school where Mohamed Atta
had just begun flight training was seized in July 2000 carrying
43 lbs of heroin (according to the Orlando Sentinel, a Central
Florida record) the story would have had huge implications for unanswered

community with the second oldest population in the entire United
States as their home.
have had huge implications—except it was suppressed.
the embarrassing fact that one of the men with drug smuggler and
CIA pilot Barry Seal in the now-famous photograph on the cover

highly of the book.
But you’d be
wrong. None have
expressed any interest. When my next book arrives it will have
been they arrive, it will be
own efforts, and those of my friends, especially friend and
courageous publisher Kris Millegan and his Trine Books out in Eugene Oregon.
That's about as far
from the center of American publishing as you can get.

I’ve finally managed
to put enough money together to reprint a few hundred copies of
& 'the boys,’ but not enough to sell them as “books” in
any conventional publishing framework. “Barry & ‘the boys’”
is currently selling for between $100 and $150 dollars
on Amazon. None of that went to me.
To continue to
investigate what I think needs investigating, and then writer a
book or produce a documentary about what I've found, I need
to take in signifcantly more than in the past two years. The
