Why America Slept: The Failure to Prevent 9/11

If you haven't read Why America Slept, you should. If I may be allowed to be so bold, it's a searing indictment of the Clinton and Bush administrations and the CIA and FBI. In Chapter 19 it sets out the details of a remarkable interrogation of an Al Qaeda terrorist and raises disturbing questions over a possible 9/11 role for some Saudi and Pakistani officials.

“Cocaine godmother” Griselda Blanco gunned down in Colombia

I was interviewed about her a couple of weeks ago on the Biography Channel's American Gangster.

From the Miami Herald: "Griselda Blanco, the drug kingpin known for her blood-soaked style of street vengeance during Miami’s “cocaine cowboys” era of the ’70s and ’80s, was shot to death in Medellin by a motorcycle-riding assassin Monday.

Blanco, 69, spent nearly two decades behind bars in the United States for drug trafficking and three murders, including the 1982 slaying of a 2-year-old boy in Miami.

Called the “Godmother of Cocaine,” she was deported in 2004 to Colombia, where she maintained a low profile.

Colombia’s national police confirmed her slaying late Monday. According to Colombian press reports, two gunmen on motorcycles pulled up to Blanco as she walked out of a butcher shop in Medellin, her hometown. One man pumped two bullets into her head, according to El Colombiano newspaper. It was the sort of death many had predicted for her: Blanco has been credited with inventing the idea of the “motorcycle assassin” who rode by victims and sprayed them with bullets.

“It’s surprising to all of us that she had not been killed sooner because she made a lot of enemies,” former Miami homicide detective Nelson Andreu, who investigated her, said late Monday. “When you kill so many and hurt so many people like she did, it’s only a matter of time before they find you and try to even the score.”
