The United States will discuss the idea of US armed agents operating inside Mexico, which is being rocked by deadly drug violence, when President Barack Obama meets his Mexican counterpart Felipe Calderon, a senior US official said Wednesday.
Obama welcomes Calderon to the White House on Thursday.
"It's a top priority for the US government to ensure that measures are being taken to protect our personnel," the official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told journalists in a phone briefing.
"That will continue to be a topic of conversation between both governments and will undoubtedly be a topic that gets discussed tomorrow between President Obama and President Calderon," the source said when asked about US agents' inability to carry their weapons in Mexico since 1990.

We have an armed diplomat in a Pakistani jail right now. Fortunately, he survived, but the USG has done little to free him. Given the track record of this Potus ans SOS..who would want to be a diplomat or agent of the US in any questionable country?
And LBJama gets the ball rollin on his own Vietnam.
I wonder if Calderon will ask Obama why he allowed 1000’s of weapons to be sent into Mexico by BATF.
When will he talk about Project Gunwalker? When Utopia freezes over?
