Operation Hun begins when Sonia Atala, deemed too powerful by the male dominated-cocaine aristocracy, is targeted for death. She strikes a secret deal: in return for protection, she will give DEA its first look into the inner workings of the organizations controlling the gusher of cocaine pouring into the US. Levine, posing as Sonia’s half-Sicilian, half-Puerto Rican Mafioso lover and business partner, is now targeted by her enemies. Supplied with a mansion, a fleet of luxury cars, an undercover Mafia crew, and a planeload of cocaine as props, he lures them to his luxurious home to settle their differences on hidden DEA video. It should have been enough evidence to indict those in control of the flow of cocaine into the US. But nothing was as it seemed. Levine discovers that Sonia has a secret: she is manipulating DEA with the help of covert and powerful forces in the US government to selectively destroy her enemies while leaving the cocaine pipeline intact.
Read The Big White Lie and experience the darkest secrets of America’s War on Drugs for yourself—from one who has lived it. RECENT NEWS: During a March 3, 2011 world press conference, the President of Bolivia, Evo Morales, raised a copy The Big White Lie (La Guerra Falsa—the Spanish Translation) in front of news cameras proclaiming the book as one of the reasons he had banned DEA from his country. The photo of President Morales with the book in hand rocketed around the world. When interviewed, Levine said that if President Morales had really understood the book he would have banished CIA from his country and welcomed DEA as heroes. Now that the book is republished as an e-book, readers can decide the truth for themselves.
