Columbian Rambo – Carlos Lehder.
Carlos Enrique Lehder Rivas or simply Carlos Lehder, born September 11, 1949, is a Colombian drug lord and co-founder of the Medellin Cartel. He is currently imprisoned in the United States.Born in Armenia, Colombia, Lehder eventually ran a cocaine transport empire on Norman’s Cay island, 340 km off the Florida coast in the central Bahamas.
Lehder was one of the founding members of Muerte a Secuestradores, a paramilitary group whose focus was to retaliate against the kidnappings of cartel members and their families by the Guerrillas.His motivation to join the MAS was to retaliate against the M-19 guerrilla movement, which, on November 19, 1981 attempted to kidnap him for a ransom, but he escaped from the kidnappers, and they only managed to shoot him in the leg.He was one of the most important MAS and Medellin Cartel operators, and is considered to be one of the most important Colombian drug kingpins to have been successfully prosecuted in the United States.
Lehder founded “a neo-Nazi political party”, the National Latin Movement, whose main function, police said, appeared to be to force Colombia to abrogate its extradition treaty with the United States.”Lehder is of mixed German-Colombian descent, his father a German engineer and mother a Colombian schoolteacher. The family owned a semi-legitimate used car business in the Medellín area in which Carlos got his start as a criminal, by supplying it with stolen American cars.
