His prose is fast-moving, readable & hard-hitting. It is crazy how the CIA and the DEA would allow drugs to come into our country to protect CIA assets, not to mention US Tax payer $$$'s and lives. I want to believe that while the facts of this book are true, some of it has been sensationalized by Levine because he was the one going through all of this.

Talk about The Big White Lie: The CIA and the Cocaine/Crack Epidemic


Kabandis
There have been several coups in Bolivia, but the "cocaine coup" of 1980 installed a military dictatorship that was financed by the nation's most powerful drug dealers, including Roberto Suárez Goméz. If that name is not familiar, think of the character from Scarface, "Alejandro Sosa," who is based on Roberto Suárez Goméz. His cousin Col. Luis Arce Gomez was appointed as Bolivia's Minister of the Interior and he was appropriately nicknamed, "The Minister of Cocaine. One of their top enforcers and distribution partners was an infamous Nazi fugitive, Klaus Barbie, aka "the Butcher of Lyon.”
This may sound like something from a cheap spy novel, but this was reality and Michael Levine (a former DEA agent turned whistleblower) proved that the U.S. government was a firm supporter of this coup. "The Big White Lie" is Levine's inside account of his attempt to take down the network of Roberto Suárez. He also detailed the efforts taken by the federal government to protect these drug trafficking organizations. That included removing the names of prominent drug traffickers from the DEA database. Also, charges were dropped against prominent drug dealers and Levine faced internal retribution when he alerted the media. Why would this happen? Levine explains that the DEA's drug enforcement mandate takes a backseat to the CIA's national security objectives. That's particularly the case when the CIA allies with firmly anti-communist, right-wing dictators.
My favorite moments in this book were when Levine included some perspectives from his colleagues who had already come to grips with the realities of the drug war.

Levine wrote this book several years ago, but it has just recently come out in eBook form.

It's an extremely important, very well written book. He exposes the falseness of our so called, but phoney, "War on Drugs." He speaks first person, as a 25 year high level DEA undercover agent, of the undercutting of his and other DEA agents, by not only the CIA, but high level DEA management and Justice Dpt. US Attorneys. This book is a condemnation of the drug war, from someone who had believed in it thoroughly, until he experienced, time after time, of his efforts gathering indisputable evidence against the highest levels of international drug leadership being deliberately negated by the CIA and his own management in order to insure that these drug lords remained free to continue their business. Not only the CIA, but the DEA own management violated our laws by deliberately destroying evidence against top drug lords.

The DEA management so little appreciated his efforts to bring prosecutions that although he had a $200,000 contract out on his head by drug lords, the DEA would not give him protection. It even spent three years trying to find some administrative oversight for which to prosecute him.

In 1996 the annual profit to international crime, due to the war itself, was about $400 billion. A couple years ago it was about $800 billion. I would expect it to be about one billion dollars by this time. And, of course, we as US taxpayers, have probably paid about $100 billion of our own dollars to insure the continuance of this phoney, destructive outrage, for the profit of the elite.

In two or three places Levine alludes to the bankers. He does to get into this aspect, but these enormous profits, which would not exist in this magnitude without our "war," flow through the international banking system(s), thereby deriving further profits for the financial community and as a further derivative, Wall Street, due to price / earning ratios. These hundreds of billions of dollars are not buried in back yards - commercial, civil, political, and governmental leverage and control is purchased annually.

Col. L. Fletcher Prouty, who was Joint Chief's liaison with the CIA, in one of his books, independently corroborates with more details, Levine's accusation of CIA role in Bolivia, e.g., Prouty: "Following an abrupt [Bolivia] coup d'état engineered by the CIA, ... "

I want to here add recognition to the author Gary Webb, who in 1996 published his expose of the CIA involvement in the drug trade in his " Dark Alliance: The CIA, the Contras, and the Crack Cocaine Explosion." Webb committed suicide (?) in 2004 (two! Shots to the head) after having been hounded out of his profession, as a Pulitzer prize-winning investigative journalist, for daring to write about the CIA and the drug trade. As I read Levine's first hand experiences and condemnation of the CIA role, I couldn't help but recall the fate of Webb who should be honored by our nation.

Both Webb and Levine blame the CIA for the 1980's cocaine explosion in the US.

The psychopaths running our government agencies, the ones Mike writes about, get rewarded while courageous heroes like Mike get persecuted, or worse. Just one example is how Clause Barbie, the Nazi butcher of Lyon, gets out of Germany through U.S. intelligence "rat lines" and starts the ever growing drug trade in South America. You know, the same drug trade that is ruining this country and all of the U.S.'s drug war money cannot seem to catch anyone except the competition of the cartels that Barbie created. Mike documents this whole repulsive story and the damage it has been done to this country. He also tells the story that hardly anyone else will tell about why the CIA would be interested in controlling the international drug trade in the first place. These and many more revelations are in this book. A well-spring of information and hidden history that all Americans need.

The book could have been much shorter , Levine overplays the importance of his victims he investigated.
The people that should have been put in jail became presidents, he of course explains and testify to the CIA sponsored cocaine epidemic of the 80s all fingers point at the fact that the USA preferred to back up narco states as long as they did not lean left politically making our own govt complicit in huge human suffering from upstream to downstream in their phony drug war.

It's weird to know beyond the shadow of a doubt that the drug war is the biggest scam ever pulled on the American people.
To see it in writing with proof from a former agent just solidifies what everyone already knows.

If this story didn't ring so true it would be -- literally -- unbelievable. Michael Levine tells a story of malfeasance, intrigue, criminal behavior by government officials and unjust treatment of certain individuals while allowing the true kingpins to remain free and continue to conduct illegal enterprises with impunity. Anyone who objects to the legalization of drugs -- under strict control -- is a damned fool because if one believes Levine's story, which I do, there is no real war on drugs -- just Kabuki theatre.
