WikiLeaks has dumped another batch of State Department cables, and among them are communications which shed some light on a number of controversial issues involving the drug cartels on the south side of the border.

Perhaps the most disturbing cable reveals an effort by the United States to keep the border violence out of the American press. On Feburary 15, 2010 House Speaker Nancy Pelosi attended a ceremonial event on the international bridge between the sister cities of Nuevo Laredo, Mexico and Laredo, TX which was hit with stray bullets during a gun battle the prior evening, and although U.S. authorities considered cancelling the joint ceremony decided to go forward because "a change would make Texas headlines and bring attention to the shootout."
Of course, the Obama Administration long has been blatantly lying to the American people by insisting that there is no evidence of any spillover violence from the drug wars on the border, and its effort to keep a story out of the press dovetails with the denial strategy.

Dog bites Man story (i.e., just another Popo shoots dog story).
An informative and fun thread you should read. And learn.
Can you say gun runner,gun walker?
I hope Queen Nancy was loading her depends the whole time she was on the bridge.
There is a trial in Illinois involving a top guy in the Sinaloa cartel. This may shed more light on US involvement. link
Besides, if a stray round did take out Pelosi, they would have blamed it on the Tea Party.
Didn’t Big Sis recently return from a tour of the border where she rode a donkey, or skate board or whatever? Didn’t she also state that everything was both hunky and dory down there?
Nancy was running drugs. Look at that face....there’s a mule for you.
Wikileaks has turned out to be a boom for conservatives, and not so much for libtards.
In one instance when evidence of violence on the border surfaced, Bush brought his "Dog, and Pony Show," to the border, and made a big show of putting the "Guard" on the border.
Thanks AtlasStalled. Wiki ain’t the only place this info has leaked out.
