13:56
Escobar's signal was pinpointed to a quiet suburb just outside MIDI the search bloc scrambled for an immediate raid they would surround the area on the ground and take him by force gonna get the gun based upon my idea one unit hit the house other units covered the roads in and out Escobar was cornered or so they thought the house was empty
14:35
[Music] he was never here Venegas criticized the searchbox tactics the team was too large to be stealthy Escobar's spies had surely spotted the huge convoy Colonel Mejia defended his operation he believed

16:18
he knows his Tillman Colonel Mejia assured Venegas that bringing down Pablo Escobar was an extremely personal mission is the only he showed Venegas photos of 65 search bloc officers he lost to Escobar's assassin single Miguel Alvarez he double Escobar's men had repeatedly tried to kill Colonel Mejia and his family lived in constant fear Venegas was convinced
16:49
that the Colonel's commitment your persona method may he admitted he needed the seals help Alice a dilemma his man needed training together from a stereotype and yet only with mutual trust had the mission succeed [Music] the US Navy SEALs developed an arduous training regimen for the search bloc officers for three solid months they
17:26
trained tirelessly tactics teamwork and marksmanship improved dramatically they were ready for another raid to catch Escobar they would need to move lighter and faster Venegas recommended a surgical strike force inserted via helicopter the raid would commence as
18:00
soon as centra spike located Escobar and confirmed that he was holding his position sent respite pinpointed the source of Escobar's signal to a remote unpopulated area north of the city [Music] it was still there at nightfall [Music] it was time to strike [Music] moments later the search bloc deployed in a Colombian army helicopter although was a combat mission they were
18:39
accompanied by members of the US team Columbia's helicopter pilots were not yet trained in the latest night vision technology US personnel provided on-the-job training night vision revealed the source of the signal a small house nearly obscured by dense forest the teen was forced to land the helicopter to clearing several miles away a small unit of six men would move in on foot during one one zero we're gonna

21:29
captured Mejia and Venegas considered the raid a minor victory they were getting closer well the happy Escobar had been on the run for five months and was feeling the pressure of the hunt he said the Boca so you don't doctor how are you yeah he knew there was only one way colombian forces could get so close with help from the united states he wrote president Gavi idea a letter
22:14
and offered to surrender but only on his terms he would go back to prison but only in la Catedral he demanded that the search block unit be disbanded in every officer in it fired if these terms were not met Escobar threatened to unleash another campaign of terror as usual Escobar signed the letter with his signature and a thumbprint [Applause]
22:52
the Colombian government refused Escobar's offer president Gaviria would settle for nothing less than unconditional surrender [Music] and response Escobar went deeper underground [Music] stopped using his mobile phones and started using messengers to conduct business [Music] this made it impossible for centra spike
23:23
to track him for three months Escobar disappeared [Music] finally in the spring of 1993 Escobar resumed using his mobile phone although his conversations were now brief and infrequent [Music] centra spike found him yeah once again Escobar was located in the

heart of midday heat bingo when I went up easier he had eluded capture for eight months and still remained in his hometown yes I love me about two CS yeah they sclerotic Venegas refined the plan of attack I lost me at this but a ground surveillance unit would go in first to monitor the hideout Eagle they needed to determine when Escobar was most vulnerable to capture Peaks [Music]
24:34
they installed high-powered remote cameras in a building a half-mile from the hideout the cameras transmitted their signal to a van packed with surveillance equipment [Music] people Greg Hicks the Delta Force electronics expert was teamed with search bloc sergeant Gonzales [Music] they studied the movement of Escobar's men over a period of several days looking for gaps as personal security
25:05
[Music] they also monitored as a more sporadic mover for conversations evidence that he was still in the hideout holiness you know gets a bonus Venegas briefed the men an hour before the raid to prevent security leaks oh so close the demo scare at I got a little odd oh yes at nightfall the commandos would surround the hideout from all sides and hold their positions you notice Oklahoma hot

26:26
Joe the mission had been betrayed by one of his most trusted officers the raid was a boy oh I saw a girl mama Dee there was a traitor in their ranks now Mejia and Venegas would have to find him Pablo Escobar had escaped from his luxury prison the notorious drug lord was now a fugitive and free to resume

gave Mejia the officer's name but before the officer could be confronted he was found dead Escobar had infiltrated even the secret and protected search bloc so all of you know but I cannot believe our left if Venegas couldn't trust his Colombian counterparts the mission was doomed to failure [Music] but Escobar had his own traders welcome
30:02
Maria Montoya was one of them Escobar had executed her husband a high-ranking member of the Medellin drug cartel now Maria feared for her own life asked her what type of she contacted the CIA and offered them a deal in exchange for protection she would tell them anything they wanted to know about the man who killed her husband Maria's knowledge of Escobar's business
30:37
dealings were impressive [Music] she had also compiled detailed notes on the structure of his massive organization [Music] okay with her help they constructed an extensive chart listing almost a thousand Escobar's associates [Music] as lawyers bankers money launderers and assassins were named so never before had someone from inside Escobar's
31:11
organization dared to come forward in a matter of days she provided more intelligence information than the Colombian government at a mast in ten years the search bloc changed their tactics instead of going after Escobar directly they would dismantle this cartel his lawyers and business associates were caught off guard evidence found in our offices confirmed
31:49
their involvement in the midium cartel Escobar's assassins the men who did his dirty work we're more difficult to find surveillance teams combed Nadeem neighborhoods following mobile phone traffic after a week of searching they got a break locked onto a signal and heard Escobar's most dangerous assess and identify himself the assassins nickname was Sicario feeling the heat he was laying low in an

Sicario was ready members of the colombian search bloc in pain down anaconda pablo escobar's right-hand man the assassin was ambushed the bars men and they were trapped and taking heavy fire chief petty officer Torres ran to the building to help he was breaking orders to assist the men

36:10
behaving more like a death squad in an elite fighting force cosplay a moody lunatic a con la policia but the search bloc was not the only group going after Escobar's associates the poop of outraged citizens began taking the law into their own hands murdering as many as five of Escobar's Associates per day los bebés or people persecuted by Pablo Escobar targeted Escobar's friends family and property they left their signature by hanging
36:48
signs around the necks of their victims [Music] Escobar's vast organization was shrinking five members of Escobar's extended family had been killed aha Escobar now feared for the safety of his own wife and children mama I think they mean he used his connections to quickly obtain visas for his family and their bodyguards being they boarded a flight to Germany Bowens yo let's go Alan with his wife
37:34
and children out of the country Escobar was now free to retaliate despite all efforts to shut him down more than half of his organization was still intact [Music] Escobar's put a price on the head of each and every member of the search bloc the higher the rank the higher the reward [Music] he resumed bombing government targets the country braced itself for a new campaign of terror
38:20

39:31
closing in on Escobar the mission came under the scrutiny of the US government we appreciate there was an obvious correlation between the people killed by los pepes and the search blocks list of suspects if the search bloc was indeed working with most Pepe's to murder suspects US forces could be implicated in the unlawful assassination of foreign nationals [Music]
40:02
colonel may he had denied any connection between his unit and the vigilantes he suggested los pepes had gathered their own intelligence let me tell you what I think the pattern is just a [ __ ] so they're suspects simply coincided with his own Frank your team is in viola Pentagon and the US State Department advised ambassador Busby of their concern okay they feared the seals would be caught in the middle of an international incident you're going to
40:34
be replaced by conventional forces we'll be pulling the plotters on the mission believing country within 30 days back to your posts in the United States an Angus team would be ordered out of Colombia just when they had Escobar [Music] for over 15 months a joint sealed Delta Force team and assisted the Colombian secret police in their search for Pablo Escobar uh-huh gentlemen at the US Embassy ambassador Busby relate troubling news US Special

41:51
spikes sophisticated surveillance aircraft the plane had been ordered out of the country he stumbles like they want us to keep observatory like a desperate Venegas and his team improvised they rigged a helicopter to carry more primitive electronic surveillance gear welcome to our epidemic oh ho ho see the chopper was not nearly as accurate as centra spike it was unable to pinpoint signals as
42:24
precisely I was all they had once it located a signal ground surveillance units were dispatched to the area to isolated source but Escobar had another trick up his sleeve he routed his mobile phone signal through a more powerful transmitter mama Vicky he had eluded them once again over a year on the run had taken its
43:11
toll on Escobar don't imitate me now esta noche at the search bloc and los pepes had reduced his massive organization to a skeleton crew his cash flow was now a trickle his bankers were in jail and his money-laundering machine was crippled [Music] Escobar's also worried about the safety of his family he called them every night usually at the same time we'll see
43:51
during one call sergeant Hicks got what he thought was a sure fix on Escobar's location but it led to an empty intersection again Escobar slit through the ready with the search block on his heels it was in constant motion by the other one [Music] a few days later the fugitive drug lord learned that the American surveillance plan had left Columbia he let his guard down and resumed making calls from fixed
44:40
locations the helicopter picked up Escobar's signal then looking for that are those Mia's he was tracked to a suburban neighborhood of Modena called those Olivos I was so close and I think when I might the best the helicopter could do was track him - with a 15-block radius manana as it was they would have to rely on the ground based surveillance team to pinpoint his exact location a key those me
45:16
the surveillance van spent two days prowling the streets of the city Hickson ernesto scanned the airwaves waiting to intercept Escobar's next call getting a signal okay second December 2nd 1993 they finally picked up his signal [Music] they pulled over as the signal Pete Escobar could be anywhere within a four-block radius sergeant Ernesto studied the buildings along the block
46:02
then movement in one window caught his eye yes come on dopey so a twist a root of shirt Elemento I have that got bananas then I've got dinner while sergeant Hicks called for backup sergeant Ernesto covered the exits to prevent Escobar's escape Sargento Nesta Calavera escobar la segunda vez en la calle backup arrived in minutes now he and his men quickly
46:37
surrounded the building trapping Escobar and his bodyguard inside as much as the Americans wanted to help they were only allowed to support the mission from outside Escobar and his bodyguard were alerted by the arriving vehicles they escaped out a back window and onto the roof but Escobar was now dealing with a superbly trained Colombian force the
47:14
search bloc closed in The Bodyguard laid down cover fire so Escobar had a fighting chance of escaping the bodyguard took a fatal shot [Music] Escobar was cornered [Music] Escobar was hit in the leg on the back
47:54
he was still alive a search bloc officer put an end to Escobar's reign of terror [Music] the official medical report said Escobar died from a point-blank gunshot wound to the head diggin the shooter means anonymous [Music] for the Navy SEALs and Delta Force the mission was over
48:43
but the end of Escobar did not signal the end of the drug war [Music] today rebel guerrillas partnered with new cartels have filled the vacuum left by Escobar's death US forces continue what the covert teams began they provide training and intelligence support the Colombian troops in their ongoing effort to staunch the flow of drugs [Music]
49:14
