Trace the history of the DEA and go behind the scenes of some of its pivotal cases in this sweeping look at America's "war on drugs."
They fight a critical battle on every front. From the small-time user to the large-scale producer, the DEA is charged with eliminating the scourge of illegal drugs in America. It is an uphill battle against powerful criminal cabals, the temptation of corruption, and America's troubling appetite for drugs.
From the origins of the Federal Bureau of Dangerous Drugs to the modern day DEA, this is the definitive look at the "war on drugs," and the men at the heart of the battle. Explore some of the landmark cases including the apprehension of a notorious drug "queenpin," and the brutal death of an agent in Mexico. Travel deep into South American jungles, where the DEA is taking the fight to the source, literally attacking the cocaine epidemic at the root. In revealing interviews, DEA operatives offer an up-close look at the tactics they employ and the dangers they face. And meet agents who have tarnished the DEA's image by giving into temptation and turning into the kind of criminals they swore to fight.
