Operation Pseudo Miranda

A Veteran of the CIA Drug Wars Tells All

Foreword Review — Jan / Feb 2001

Cocaine Conundrum: “Bullets suddenly began to fly at us again, although from a new direction as our attackers circled to cut us off. We plunged on. Moving almost blindly now, our skins lacerated by the unforgiving brush, we finally made our way back to the small hill where the helicopter had landed. It was gone.”

Bucchi tells of confronting “cocaine cowboys” in Colombia as one of the tactical commanders fighting drug trafficers. Bucchi, author of Inside Job: Deep Undercover as a Corporate Spy and Criminologist, also tells of his planning of Operation Pseudo Miranda that involved a deal with “coke lords” concerning seizure of half the incoming cocaine into the U. S.

A story of bullets and bravado as well as C.I.A. skulduggery.
