In this episode, we explore why the U.S. needs Black Ops, the importance of human intelligence, and the emotions at play in intelligence gathering. We delve into Black Ops philosophies, discuss foreign counter-intelligence, and the intense strategy that went into the tumultuous period in Regan's war against communism in Central America. Delving further, Prado shares a harrowing account of his close encounter with death fighting the Sandinistas in the Contra war in Honduras and his role in the Bin Laden task force known as Alec Station. He addresses the controversy around why Bin Laden wasn't rendered earlier and the important issues of oversight in the agency and respect for enemies. We also discuss the ethical standards within the agency and the politics that play out behind closed doors. As we wind down, we discuss the decision to retire, the ramifications of operation disruption, his reaction to 9/11, and take a somber moment to reflect on the CIA memorial.

We then pick up the pace to discuss the future of military recruitment, the necessity of bravery in leadership, and compare drone assassinations to close quarters operations. We end on a lighter note discussing who should play Prado in a movie and the role love plays in his life. Join us for a mesmerizing journey into the depths of the CIA and the world of Black Ops with Ric Prado. In this riveting podcast, our host engages Ric Prado, a former spy for the CIA, in a thought-provoking discussion that spans a range of topics - from the rationale behind black ops to the importance of human intelligence in the world of espionage.
