Operation Odessa

Great documentary about three guys with some huge balls. These were the guys that bought Russian helos and subs to run drugs for Escobar--one of the three is still an international fugitive (Tony Yester). If you get a chance, it's worth the watch, and there is zero doubt that Benicio Del Toro's character in Sicario was based on Tony Yester, down to the clothes, voice, and exact mannerisms of asskickery.

I actually saw it on Showtime...these three fuckers were incredible, ballsy, and lucky as fuck. They got over on the FBI, DEA, CIA, NSA, the Russians and Escobar--and all three lived to tell about it. Definitely ranks up there with--"You can't make this shit up".

Well maybe it's because I'm OCONUS because I have it online. That's weird because it's usually the other way around.

Ha no kidding. Now I know why a few times on here people have said it is on Netflix and I couldn't find it.

Most likely. When I lived in Germany I didnít get the US Netflix.

Not a bad documentary at all.

Steal $10,000,000 from the Cali cartel. Live to brag about it.

Impressive.

Did they touch on the fact that Juan Almeida was recently sentenced to prison for conspiring to distribute marijuana, or did his current legal trouble happen too late in the process of making the doc?

I couldn't find any on youtube that weren't click bait. I watched it on hulu, you have to get the showtime add on. Free trial.

Really good documentary.

The high-security submarine base looked a bit dodgy. They took happy snaps including of the Russian cruiser Aurora which is a museum ship, the ancient Dreadnought looking thing with the wing turrets.

There are extensions and desktop apps that can download YT videos if you want to watch on something else/later. I paid for 4KVideoDownloader (a bundle with all their apps) but FF and Chrome have the free extensions.

A VPN with US exit IPs might let you watch US Netflix from abroad, unless they are blocking. I'm finding Proton VPN to be really good speed wise on every country I've tried so far.
