The Wall Street Journal tells the story of Baruch Vega, a fashion photographer with a secret life: Vega worked as an informant for the DEA; he had connections with the world's most-powerful drug trafficers. Vega would often persuade traffickers to surrender to U.S. lawmen. He bought their trust by appearing to have influence with the Justice Department. In reality, however, Vega was a double agent for the DEA. But, Vega's act might have worked too well: he is now charged with "receiving million-dollar fees from drug lords in return for promising to use his influence with U.S, agents to help them with their legal problems."
