If Mexican border agents shot an American, I would expect the US government to take an interest. Yes, even if the American was trying to enter Mexico with an intent to break the law.

INDEED.

My own take . . .

The Oligarchy wanted to send a sobering message to folks to leave their lucrative drug business alone.

Hideously treasonous.

In Mexico, everyone is literally guilty until proven innocent (or pay a big bribe.)

You really can’t compare the two. At least, not until President Bush started sending Americans to prison based on the word of an illegal alien drug runner you couldn’t.

This will all come out if Obama allows it. It isn’t pretty. But the ironic thing is, what Bush did with Mexico will pale besides what Obama will do with the Muslim governments. America is for sale, just take over payments.

Rico added his government lobbied to keep the agents in prison. But the efforts of what he called anti-immigrant groups had more influence.

Yes, because cartel members who sneak into the US for an hour or two to drop off a half ton of narcotics should be considered "immigrants".

I agree Quix. There is something quite rotten - and it ain't in Denmark.

Jorge Bush leaves office as possibly the worst president in American history. He will be remembered for having kept the borders open in spite of the public outcry to secure them and to enforce immigration law...all the while ignoring the real threat of future terrorist attacks attributable to the borders HE chose to leave open.

Good riddance.

If I was arrested in a foreign country (for whatever reason), I sure as heck would like the U.S. government to take interest.

Lets hope the big government cheerleaders and politician worshipers don’t succeed in getting this thread sent to the cornfield.

“REP. TED POE, (R) TX: We’ve always thought the Mexican government was involved in this case ever since the U.S. Attorney’s office made the back room deal with the drug dealer. I thought that they made a backroom deal with the Mexican government at the same time. It looks like that all throughout this case. We certainly want to find out their involvement.”

_____________________

Know who the General Council in Homeland Security was at the time? And resigned when the public found out about Ramos/Compean? You’re not going to like it.

Exposing the Dept. of Job Security (who is Philip Perry?)

http://towncriernews.blogspot.com/search?q=Philip+Perry

[snips] Enter Philip Perry. When Michael Chertoff was nominated to head the DHS in 2005, he had asked Perry to join him as the department’s general counsel. The two were not only colleagues at Latham & Watkins but also members of the conservative Federalist Society, and they were of like minds in their general distrust of government regulation of business. By the summer of 2006, as various bills competed for attention, Perry’s services were in great demand. “Industry went back to the well,” says one DHS official.

To no surprise, Perry’s “revolving door” habits haven’t ended with his position at DHS. Secretary Chertoff announced on Jan. 23 that Perry would be resigning from DHS by Feb. 6, presumably to rejoin his old law firm. Although Perry’s exit will undoubtedly be an improvement for DHS accountability, the enormous problems that he had a hand in creating at the Department still remain.

Walker said the problem is “systemic” and not the fault of any single individual. But he complained that GAO has had to go through the office of General Counsel Philip Perry. Perry is married to Elizabeth Cheney, a former State Department official who is one of the vice president’s two daughters. Walker said it is his understanding that people from Perry’s office have to review documents GAO seeks before they are released and selectively sit in on interviews with department employees.

“When you have more lawyers in a meeting than program people, you know you got a problem. Something needs to be done about this,” Walker said. “There needs to be an understanding that if the general counsel’s office is going to get involved, it’s clearly got to be the exception rather than the rule,” he added. “Right now the system is structured to delay, delay, delay ... We haven’t had a situation where they refuse information but it might take months to get it.”

Homeland Security Inspector General Richard Skinner said his investigations have also been hindered. “We’re experiencing the same problem,” said Skinner, who added his office is “oftentimes” told who they can interview and that it sometimes takes weeks to get documents.

From what we’ve found, it appears Philip Perry may have also been involved with the Ramos/Compean prosecution and resulting ‘confusion’ over statements, testimony, investigation by Homeland Security. Perry resigned this month to ‘spend more time with family’.

Remember Skinner is the one who admitted to congressmen last week that Homeland Security had ‘misled them’ about statements Ramos and Compean made to the Homeland security investigator.

Perry’s wife Elizabeth (daughter of Dick Cheney), was #2 at the State Dept for Mid eastern affairs until recently.

Exactly! As our country becomes morally and economically bankrupt, it becomes easier to surrender to a world government.
