The Whistleblower Newsroom - Max Kail, author of ZOMBIE FILES

Max Kail, author of ZOMBIE FILES: GUNS, DRUGS, POLITICS AND VOODOO UNDER THE MANDATE OF THE UNITED NATIONS began his stint in Haiti as a security officer for the UN and was so troubled by how ineffective they were at combatting the murderous drug trafficking and kidnapping gangs that had a stranglehold on the country that he and other security specialists formed an ad hoc shadow group called The Zombie Hunters Union to crack down on them. Kail explains that Haiti is not a failed state but a successful narco-state supported by elite politicians (including presidents) and business people, with money made from servicing drug cartels. Part of that money is used to arm drug trafficking gangs and to pay off law enforcement, lower-level politicians, Voodoo practioners and the justice system. Kail’s book is, arguably, the most detailed insider description written to date of how a narco-state actually operates and of the brutality and depravity that attend it.
