The Stacks: A DEA Agent at War with the War on Drugs

TheDailyBeast.com has featured a reprint of the late Mark Kram's fantastic profile on Michael Levine, originally published as "The Betrayal of Michael Levine" in the March 1991 of Esquire. A thrilling read by a fantastic writer, the piece reads like a film-noir thriller, detailing Levine's fight to bring attention to the failures of the American "War on Drugs."

Mark Kram was one of Sports Illustrated's most lyrical writers of the 1960's and 70's and the author of a book about the tormented relationship between Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier.

Triangle of Death eBook Now Available

"Triangle of Death" by Michael Levine has just been published in Epub digital version by Amazon.com, iBooks and BarnesandNoble.com.

The name was coined by a US prosecutor when a world map used to diagram the conspiracy, black pins for homicides, green pins for cash exchanges, white pins for heroin and cocaine deliveries, formed a triangle covering three continents. Europe, South America and the US. Triangle of Death is the only book ever published that gives an accurate depiction of The Auguste Ricord organization and its downfall.

Ricord, a French Nazi collaborator during WWII was sentenced to death by France in absentia. Aided by OSS the forerunner of CIA, he was spirited out of Europe to Paraguay before the French could capture him. From his Paraguay headquarters, protected by CIA, he set up the global drug and death dealing organization the was the source of the heroin seized in the fabled French Connection. Ironically, the book, a fact-based an action thriller, an authentic deep cover odyssey, has more accurate detail about the function of this organization and its ongoing protection by CIA than anything the authors' could find in any other source. The organization was the first to combine massive heroin and cocaine shipments into the US. Michael Levine, a young special agent with DEA was a part of the original investigation. When first published the first run of this book sold out in hours, and hit best seller lists throughout the country, then shipments to book stores inexplicably disappeared. Michael appeared before an audience of 5,000 at the Marin County Auditorium, San Francisco, in an event sponsored by radio and TV personality, Michael Savage. The publisher, Barnes and Noble ordered 2,000 books to be available at the presentation. None were delivered. It took weeks of investigation to learn that the ISBN serial number for the book had been mysteriously altered in the computer, making it impossible for any retail book outlet to reorder the book. An event that in the history of book publishing, had never happened before. All investigations into how this happened yielded no explanation.

Among the factual revelations of the book is the attempt and limited success of this organization to genetically alter cocaine into a sexual enhancement drug (with violent side affects) that made it both highly addictive and extremely dangerous to anyone in the vicinity of users; and an interrupted trade, Mideast oil for this genetically altered drug that would have made it a weapon of terror.



The above photo captures the beginning of the takedown of the Ricord organization in the early 70s. Pictured is Claude Pastou, (wrists cut from suicide attempt) DEA Agents John Coleman and Mike Levine (without handcuffs). The massive world-wide arrests and extraditions to the US had begun. Pastou admitted responsibility for smuggling well over a thousand kilos of heroin and cocaine into the US, while working for Ricord. Among those brought in from South America by DEA on that day were Lucien Sarti, an assassin whom some believe was the trigger man in JFK's assassination and Christian David, fugitive from France for the murder of two French policemen who attempted suicide by eating a light bulb.

Evo Morales & the Big While Lie

On March 3, 2011, Bolivian President Evo Morales vowed before the world press that DEA would never again be permitted to enter Bolivia. He cited the events in La Guerra Falsa (the Spanish language translation of The Big White Lie) as proof of America's covert use of the War on Drugs to manipulate his and other governments as his justification. This event was largely ignored by American mainstream media. As a consequence, the American taxpayer who is paying the price of the War on Drugs in drug related deaths, homicides and more than a trillion in taxes, continues to be left in the dark.

This book is not about the betrayal of the Bolivian people; it's about the betrayal of both our peoples by individuals in CIA and the Department of Justice whom in a sane world should have been indicted for treason and complicity to mass murder.

Since the first publication of this book in 1993, CIA Inspector General Frederick Hitz admitted CIA's support of the same drug dealers targeted by DEA, in essence, corroborating every accusation documented in these pages. Furthermore, Federal Judge Robert Bonner the DEA Administrator went public on 60 Minutes and called CIA drug smugglers.
