I just wonder to what extent he has been blamed for things by the CIA which the CIA are themselves actually guilty of

The 'narcos' series could be typical hollywood propaganda to shape the perceptions of the public
Did pablo escobar work for the CIA? US media quiet as sons memoir says 'yes'

Did Pablo Escobar work for the CIA? The question is nothing new for conspiracy theorists who have long argued that the United States government’s War on Drugs was actually a cover-up of its efforts to get in on the action, and a new memoir from an individual with a front row seat lends even more fodder to those suspicions.

Born Juan Pablo Escobar, Sebastián Marroquín now lives under a pseudonym in trendy neighborhood Palermo Soho in Buenos Aires, Argentina. After a brief stint in Mozambique following the death of his father, the son of the notorious drug lord moved to the nearby South American country with his mother and sister.

In his new memoir, Pablo Escobar In Fraganti: What My Father Never Told Me, the iconic drug trafficker’s son shares these interactions to shed light on the man behind the legend, with one particular detail pushed to the headlines: Marroquín alleges that the CIA was closely associated with his father’s business, according to an exclusive interview with Infobae.

“In my book, I tell the story of my father working for the CIA selling cocaine to finance the fight against Communism in Central America. There are names like George Bush, Sr. and many more.”
