Drugs - Collection Finding Aid



This collection consists of email, cables, and reports of the aftermath from November 9, 1998, when a Colombian Air Force plane that landed in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, was discovered to contain over 700 separate packets of cocaine. Many of the cables summarize Colombian newspaper articles and television reports about the discovery of drugs on the plane and the reaction by the Colombian government. The Colombian press attacked the corruption in the Columbian armed forces and officially dubbed the Colombia Air Force, the “Blue Cartel.”
