I am a sucker for all things historical as you know, and I have been watching the second season of Narco’s on Netflix which chronicles the story of Pablo Escobar’s rise and meteoric fall as one of the most notorious drug czar’s ever to live.
As many of you may or may not know, Escobar’s story is one of not only drugs and crime but politics and government corruption (the 2 typically go hand in hand) that span 3 decades of Columbia’s bloody history.
Escobar partnered with M-19 Communist guerilla’s to attack the Palace of Justice in 1985. In doing this, Escobar created the term “Narco-Terrorist” and at the same time made enemies with the violent but effective anti-communist Autodefensas Paramilitary Group known as “Los Pepes”.
Now it goes without saying that certain American “Alphabet agencies” were interested in helping see that both Communism and Escobar were taken out of the picture quickly and quietly, so CIA involvement in the supplying of arms and intelligence to right-wing paramilitary groups was pretty much a given during this time.
As you can see this is interesting history, if you are willing to dig into it a bit.
