1996 Author Roger Morris 'Partners in Power: The Clintons and Their America'


at the Page One bookstore in Albuquerque, New Mexico author Roger Morris talks about his then-new book
'Partners in Power: The Clintons and Their America'
and its reception by the corporate mass media and political elites.

The book openly references Bill Clinton's late 1960s involvement with the CIA's Operation CHAOS to identify and surveill peace activists (he visited the Oslo Peace Institute and submitted a CIA informant's report on American activists who had taken refuge in Scandinavia).

Also Hillary Clinton's quiet aid during the 1980s to Contra fundraising in Little Rock, Arkansas and her activities to undermine legitimacy of peace activists and pro-Sandinista church groups opposed to U.S. policy in Central America.
