    The thing about this book is that although it intrigued me intensely; it just isn't all that cracked up to be The author sometimes act as if he couldn't believe that America and its people could ever be corrupted; and that there isn't any fowl play involved in such situations Suffice it to say that my expectations about this book were null by the end of itOther than that it does put light on the bad guys and the good guys I really liked the characters of George Uruijo and Steve Nelson They put some much needed stability into the whole fiasco The way Levine outdid himself as Luis was also a good thing and also how he manage to record the whole caseWhat really surprised me till the last page of the book was the peculiar role David Wheeler played in the whole thing It just seemed like a scam at times but I was really surprised at how the government could choose to ignore the only important stuff about himIn all I just kinda dragged through the last 70 pages of the book That may also have been because it had too many names of the people to remember who did what wrong The 'War on Drugs' was too messed up from the beginning anyway

    This is an interesting story but I just can't get past the fact that reading it feels like I'm on some sort of wacked out conspiracy theory website The irony here is that it is a conspiracy theory in fact it's a first hand account of an alleged major cover up by the US government but I just don't feel the level of shock and outrage that the author is clearly trying to provoke I think the problem is that he comes off as so over the top that I have trouble taking him seriously And he's so cocky and self righteous that I have trouble genuinely caring about what he's saying Well that and the fact that he is way too fond of italics
