His recruitment into the security forces came by the Iran-Contra scandal, also known as Irangate. This case was about to cost the job to the American president Ronald Reagan, who had already been involved in other political scandals. Seal was part of the Medellin cartel in the 80's, where he demonstrated his exceptional skills as a pilot drug moving to another location, always going unnoticed and unpunished.
