- Undercover Tactics and Informant Handling
- International Narcotic Enforcement
- Human Intelligence (Informant Handling),
Mike Levine, was a 25 year veteran, highly decorated international deep cover agent, who witnessed, first hand, how the CIA, State Department and the Department of Justice teamed up to kill every major international drug case I was involved in, for political and economic reasons. At the same time our politicians and bureaucrats lied to the American people and taxed them hundreds of billions of dollars to fight drugs. I was a witness to the highest kind of treason imaginable committed by our government’s covert agencies, politicans and bureaucrats, against their own people. After my brother, a heroin addict for 25 years, committed suicide and my son, a highly decorated New York City police officer was killed by crack addicts during a holdup, I had experienced enough. I decided I would use whatever talents God gave me and training the government gave me, against the criminals responsible for the immense and deadly fraud.
Levine has lectured on a contractual basis for many local enforcement agencies on Human Intelligence, Undercover/Covert Operations, Narcotics Investigations [from street level to international], International Operations and more (details on request).
