MY BOOK SYNOPSIS
I am Suad Leija, my story starts at age eleven in Chicago. I am the step daughter of Manuel Leija Sanchez, one the founder’s of the Castorena Leija Sanchez organization the largest Mexican crime organizations that produces and sells fake identification in the United States. I started to realize who my father was and what he did when the FBI raided our house in Chicago when I was eleven they had come to arrest my father Manuel Leija Sanchez. I also started to learn of the brutality of my family. Through a series of events that shaped my life I made a decision that put my life at risk to assist the U.S. government in its fight against terrorism by becoming a witness in the prosecution of my father, my family and their associates, identifying key family members and providing the history of this organization. I had to make a life decision that would affect the rest of my life and at 21 years old, a decision not many people have to make. As a young woman I hope that other young girls and women can see that in the end we all have to make our own decisions and that we are capable of making good ones even if they hard
As a twenty-year-old university student in Nicaragua , I became an unsuspecting target of the U.S. intelligence effort to gain entry into my father and partners vast American computer data base located in 33 states and 53 American cities in order to track terrorists who obtained counterfeit documents. Called the Tag Operation, the responsibility for its ultimate failure is shared by both the Leija Sanchez family and the Department of Homeland Security. Despite this failure, I developed into the key figure in the pursuit and eventual prosecution of the Castorena Leija Sanchez organization itself. I initiated, through my Grand Jury testimony, my appearance before Congress, and the coverage of my interviews by the media, the indictments and arrests of my father, uncles and numerous other members of CLS in several countries.
My marriage to the man who was responsible for me being here provided the wire tap information, relating business conversations between members of the CLS organization also impacted the failure of the bill. These wiretaps, explaining to a client how CLS “can fix his papers” to meet the requirements of a legalization program such as the bill the Senate was presently debating, were provided by my husband to the Washington Times, and ran as a front page story for two days. Also on the taps was the conversation of the planning and gruesome murder of a former employee turned competitor in Mexico.
Paper Weapons is also the story of my husband Robert Kelly, who had infiltrated the Russian trained Cuban DGI, Cuba’s version of the American CIA. He worked for years traveling to Havana,Miami, and through out Central America. He operated out of Miami andCosta Rica as a double agent, controlled as a NOC (Non-Official Cover) agent, supervised by a counter terrorist unit of the FBI inMiami. He lived three different lives in three different places at this time:
Costa Rica: as a business man married to a Costa Rican; as an agent of the Cuban government and an agent of the United States government.
Miami: as a business man in Miami, involved with the Cuban business community working for both Havanaand the United States.
Havana: as its agent in Latin America and theUnited States.
Above all, despite the story of violence, murder, espionage, and treachery that spans Miami, Atlanta, Chicago, Washington D.C., Nicaragua, Cuba, Costa Rica, Mexico,Panama and other countries in Central America, Paper Weapons is a great love story. It depicts the unexpected and unconditional love between a beautiful, innocent, determined twenty-year-old Mexican woman and a fifty-seven-year-old counter intelligence agent. He is considered uncontrollable by his American handlers. For this man, to whom she became his seventh wife, Suad Leija Sanchez has endured death threats from her father, giving traumatic testimony before the federal grand jury in Chicago , being held hostage by her grandfather, a terrifying escape across the Mexican border into the United States , and the permanent separation from her sister and mother. For this woman, whom he knowingly but painfully put in harm’s way, and with whom he is surprisingly and completely in love, has pledged to devote his own life to keeping her safe and happy. It’s a love story with a twist.
After each trip i take I draw a series of cartoons that reflect what I did and where I went with my husband Lazarus during the trip. Mostly girl stuff like shopping, resturants and meeting new interesting people. You can see a sample of the South Beach Adventure cartoon. As I draw more the quality should improve.
