Pablo Escobar’s Son Reveals His Dad “Worked for the CIA Selling Cocaine”


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

In his new book, “Pablo Escobar In Fraganti,” Escobar, who is named under the pseudonym, Juan Sebastián Marroquín, explains that 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 discussed 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.”

His first book covered Escobar, as the other, Marroquín’s second—which was just released in Argentina—goes 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. The government associates “were practically his partners,” which gave Escobar the ability to break laws, and initially gave him the same power government had.

The information is absent from media headlines in America. If you think the CIA trafficking cocaine into America sounds like some ridiculous conspiracy, think about it again. Their alleged role in this drug trade was exploited in 1996, in an explosive investigative series “Dark Alliance” by Gary Webb of the San Jose Mercury News. 

The investigation, lead by Gary Webb, proved that there were correlating ties with the CIA, Nicaraguan contras and the crack/cocaine trade ravaging African-American communities. To discredit Webb’s report, the mainstream media tried to brainwash many, and with all of this, it sparked massive protests and congressional hearings. Decades later, officials spoke up and backed Webb’s investigation. At the time, Then-senator John Kerry released a well-detailed report that claims “considerable evidence” that links the Contra effort to drug & weapons trafficking— but that the U.S. government knew all about it and said nothing. 
Escobar, also known as El Patron, attained so much wealth than any other drug dealer in history. He, at one point, made around $420 million a week—and supplied 80% of the world’s cocaine. He was on the Forbes list of international billionaires for seven years. In the business, there’s no such thing as solid numbers—his estimated worth was around $30 billion. Escobar and his drug cartel smuggled over 15 tons of cocaine into the U.S.—every day—and left a trail of thousands dead just to carry out the job. 

“It was a nine-hundred-mile run from the north coast of Colombia and was simply wide-open,” journalist Ioan Grillo wrote in the book, “El Narco: Inside Mexico’s Criminal Insurgency.”

“The Colombians and their American counterparts would airdrop loads of blow out to sea, from where it would be rushed ashore in speedboats, or even fly it right onto the Florida mainland and let it crash down in the countryside.” It it’s true, what Marroquín reveals in his new book, it would explain how the CIA took part in making sure American’s had their share of cocaine. They were doing this WHILE funding anti-drug propaganda with taxpayer money. As Marroquín observes, drug prohibition makes for the best pro-drug propaganda—the nature of something initially being illegal gives it a higher sense of appeal to others. 

Prohibition was what kept Pablo Escobar in good reign of his consumers and rich. It also further guaranteed him to be a violent force to reckon with. Marroquín believes “his path of healing is reconciliation with the relatives of those whom his father ordered to kill.”

He utilized violence in many ways, by ordering others to effectively pursue it to gain power. He was a very charitable man though. Business Insider notes, “He was nicknamed ‘Robin Hood’ after handing out cash to the poor, building housing for the homeless, constructing 70 community soccer fields, and building a zoo.”

Pablo met his fate in 1993, and suffered a gunshot to the head, as he was escaping from his home that was surrounded by cops. The circumstances around his death are being questioned still to this day. Marroquín insists his father committed suicide rather than be shot or captured by police forces sent to capture him; while others believe Escobar was killed by police. Either way, Escobar’s accumulation of wealth could be viewed as incidental to the role he played for the CIA and the war on drugs — a massive hypocrisy serving to only keep people hooked on a substance deemed illegal by the State, so the State can then reap in the profits made by prisons, courts and police work ‘necessary’ to ‘combat’ the ‘war on drugs.’

“My father was a cog in a big business of universal drug trafficking,” Marroquín says, and when he served no purpose for those using him that way, killers were sent to do away with the problem — the problem so many had a part in creating. Marroquín revealed himself to be the son of Pablo Escobar in 2009. He says he has had to forgive the family members involved in the drug business and mostly, the betrayal of his father. He explains that forgiveness means not forgetting the past and its happenings. He has a wise perspective on the man who ruthlessly rules the cocaine industry.“Pablo Escobar is by no means a role model,” he asserts.

“I admire Pablo, my father, who educated me. Not Escobar, the mafioso.”

Marroquín further noted that drug lords, like his father, might have it all in mass public attention, status and materialistic gains, but in all reality it has no goodness to it. “The more power my father had, the poorer he lived.”
