Bolivian President Uses Former DEA Agent’s Book to Send Message to the World
[QUOTE] the tome Morales displayed for the cameras on March 3 at a military ceremony in La Paz, Bolivia is the Spanish-language version of “The Big
White Lie,” a book penned by former DEA undercover agent Mike Levine. The book exposes the CIA's corrupt involvement in the drug war, including its
role in the "coc aine coup" in Bolivia in 1980. [END QUOTE]

Given these facts, it was more than a little disconcerting to a U.S. senator who has been investigating Fast and Furious when he discovered that one
of the guns found near the scene of the recent Sinaloa gun battle was previously owned by ATF supervisor Gillett — while yet another gun found at
the same crime scene, an AK-47, traced back to the arms smuggler Patino. What are the odds of that?
This revelation is even more troubling when put into the context of the pretense of the war on drugs and the vast sums of money squandered and lives
ruined, or ended, due to US government policies in the pursuit of that “war.” Equally troubling is the reaction of this nation’s bureaucratic
leadership to this rank-and-file corruption, a reaction that typically involves throwing more money at the problem and seeking to implement knee-jerk
policies that don’t address the underlying corruption — and, in fact, are likely only to create new problems.
From the book: "The Big White Lie"
[QUOTE] "In these pages I will lead you through the deep cover odyssey that I lived for six years. You will hear the words I heard, witness what I
and others did, and learn the real reasons behind our coc aine and crack epidemic — the ones your elected representatives hid from you in
secret sessions behind closed doors and a misuse of the secrecy laws that must have had our founding fathers twisting in their graves.
"I will give you a fly-on-the-wall look at how the CIA perverts the American justice system by protecting drug dealers and murderers from
prosecution; at how even federal judges and prosecutors alleged to have violated narcotic laws were protected from investigation; at how a beautiful
South American woman called 'the Queen of Cocaine,' by Pablo Escobar, responsible for shipping more coc aine into the United States than any
one person I had ever known, was able to seduce the CIA into destroying her competitors, protecting her from prosecution, and paying her a small
fortune in taxpayer dollars for her 'services'; at how the only ruling government of Bolivia that ever wanted to help DEA defeat their drug barons
was paid for its faith in our sincerity with torture and death at the hands of CIA-sponsored paramilitary terrorists under the command of fugitive
Nazi war criminals. And finally, you will realize, as I did, the ultimate betrayal of America; how, without the CIA's protection and support the
resultant crack/coc aine epidemic might never have occurred.

IMO there is nothing about the Drug War and misuse of funds/corruption that surprises me anymore. DEA Gulfstream 2 with 4 tons of coke (the snorting
kind) that crashed along with a few other instances of the" war on drugs" has verified my belief our education system can turn out some truly stupid
people who work for the government. Back to your original post on Bolivia....Intimidate, Infiltrate, and if needed exterminate. Various ways and means
in no particular order is used by certain ABC agencies all over the world and at home for whatever their agenda of the moment is. Just the way it is
and in some instances justified. The problem arises when there is very little oversight due to compartmentalization with some manager who knows best
or has an agenda that in reality goes against everything we citizens suppose America stands for. .Also "The Big White Lie" does not blame DEA; it
lays the blame exclusively on CIA.
more info on the Bolivia and some of the stuff that went down.
Evidently the book stirred the pot but as usual many in America were not aware or even cared.
All the assertions of this book as to CIA's role in protecting and aiding and abetting some of the world's biggest coc aine traffickers, in
particular those in Bolivia, would later be corroborated by testimony of CIA Inspector General Fredrick Hitz before Congress, public statements made
by top DEA officials, and the work of some of our countries best investigative journalists.
I am out of space but there is much info to be found if interested.
