Juan Pablo Escobar Henao, son of notorious Medellín cartel drug kingpin, Pablo Escobar, now says his father “worked for the CIA.”

Juan Pablo Escobar Henao, son of notorious Medellín cartel drug kingpin, Pablo Escobar, now says his father “worked for the CIA.”

In a new book, “Pablo Escobar In Fraganti,” Escobar, who lives under the pseudonym, Juan Sebastián Marroquín, explains his “father worked for the CIA selling cocaine to finance the fight against Communism in Central America.”

“The drug business is very different than what we dreamed,” he continues. “What the CIA was doing was buying the controls to get the drug into their country and getting a wonderful deal.”

“He did not make the money alone,” Marroquín elaborated in an interview, “but with US agencies that allowed him access to this money. He had direct relations with the CIA.”

Notably, Marroquín added, “the person who sold the most drugs to the CIA was Pablo Escobar.”

Where his first book primarily covered Escobar, the man as a father, Marroquín’s second — which has just been released in Argentina — delves into the kingpin’s “international ties of corruption in which my father had an active participation, among them with the American CIA,” he said in a recent interview.

Those government associates “were practically his partners,” which allowed Escobar to defy the law, and gave him nearly the same power as a government.

Predictably, this information is conveniently absent from media headlines in America.

If the CIA trafficking cocaine into the United States sounds like some tin foil conspiracy theory, think again. Their alleged role in the drug trade was exposed in 1996 in an explosive investigative series “Dark Alliance” by Gary Webb for the San Jose Mercury News. The investigation, headed up by Webb revealed ties between the CIA, Nicaraguan contras and the crack cocaine trade ravaging African-American communities.

The investigation provoked massive protests and congressional hearings, as well as overt backlash from the mainstream media to discredit Webb’s reporting. However, decades later, officials would come forward to back Webb’s original investigation up.

Then-senator John Kerry even released a detailed report claiming that not only was there “considerable evidence” linking the Contra effort to trafficking of drugs and weapons –  but that the U.S. government knew about it.

El Patron, as Escobar came to be known, amassed more wealth than almost any drug dealer in history – at one point raking in around $420 million a week in revenue – and reportedly supplied about 80 percent of the world’s cocaine. Escobar landed on Forbes’ list of international billionaires for seven straight years, and — though the nature of the business makes acquiring solid numbers impossible – his estimated worth was around $30 billion.

Escobar Jr. is trying to make some bucks writing books about his monster father. The entire Escobar family is not known for truth telling. The next book out will tell of his fathers involvement in the JFK assassination, even though he was only 14 years old at the time. Pablito started early in his life of killing and crime.

Maybe CNN should hire Escobar, Jr. to produce news stories. "Fake News" is in vogue now on that network. Perhaps he could replace Don Lemons who has been having a lot of trouble managing his own news stories.

Sounds like Escobar Jr. and Agent Olivares have something in common

@ 1:51pm its been proven that the CIA was involved with the DEA killing of Agent kike carmarena. The CIA needs what it needs to do at any expense.

Pablo has a daughter living in mcallen. The family doesn't need any more money. This guy just wants his 5 minutes. Unable to escape his father's shadow, he is just trying to keep his dad in the media. Drug dealers are a dime a dozen and no one drug dealer is "better" than an other. They are all scum.
