THE LATEST COUP IN BOLIVIA & “OPERATION CONDOR”
“Do you think Bolivia’s government—or any government in South America—can be changed without your government and mine being aware of it?”
When Levine asked why that affected the planned DEA investigation, the Argentine answered, “Because the same people being named as drug dealers are the people who we are helping to rid Bolivia of leftists.”
Three weeks later, Levine met with a Bolivian drug trafficker who outlined plans for the new government in which his niece, Sonia Atala, a major cocaine supplier, would “be in a very strong position.”
(Barry Seal worked with Sonia Atala.)
The masked paramilitary thugs in the coup turned out not to even be Bolivians, but spoke French, Italian and German, and Spanish with Argentine accents.
Their presence in Bolivia would later be ascribed to the CIA—and Operation Condor.
General Luis Garcia Meza was in control. His first act was to release drug traffickers from jail and destroy police records of trafficking. He had brought in the neo-fascist paramilitary squads wearing swastika armbands, calling themselves the “Fiancés of death.”
Garza immediately put the Interior Ministry under the control of the nephew of Roberto Suarez, the Bolivian kingpin who went on to become exactly what he styled himself as… the King of Cocaine.
