Join Bill (Sitrep 6) and Oriskany Jim as they head into the Colombian highlands circa 1989.  It’s the height of the “Escobar Era” drug war against the Medellin Cartel, and law enforcement is headed into the jungle to root out another of the Cartel’s labs.  Government forces will include troops of Policía Nacional de Colombia’s “Search Bloc” – backed up by Americans in the DEA.

But will they be facing Cartel thugs?  AUC right-wing militia?  Marxist guerrillas of the FARC movement?  Innocent farmers?  All of the above?  Tune in and find out as the Sitrep Podcast pivots back to our “Modern Warfare” roots.

Sunday, July 25 – 2PM East US Time, 7PM UK Time
