1986- Barry Seal Gunned Down By Machine Gun Fire

Barry Seal, now known to have been a gun and drug smuggler for the CIA, operating out of the Mena airport in Arkansas, had reportedly kept in contact with Bill Clinton’s head of security at the governor’s mansion, Raymond “Buddy” Young, the ex rodeo clown who later became the number 2 man at FEMA.

Following his fall from CIA grace, Barry was sentenced to live at a Salvation Army Housing Complex by a judge who also prohibited Barry Seal to either have any guns or to employ any bodyguards. Barry was gunned down with machine gun fire in the parking lot of the Salvation Army Housing Complex on February 19, 1986.
