John Carman resigned from U.S. Customs and ran customscorruption.com which resulted in Federal retaliation for his whistleblowing efforts.

The following letter to the House Judiciary Committee was written by an attorney that witnessed the criminal trail by Department of Justice personnel against former U.S. Customs agent John Carman, who had been exposing corruption in upper management through his Internet site, www.customscorruption.com.

This is the kind of thing John and other whistleblowers have been pointing out.

Judiciary has been working Fast & Furious.

This adds perspective.

Interesting, between supplying guns to cartels, allowing drugs to walk across border, not securing the border, suing states that try to protect themselves from influx of illegals, stopping the building of a fence.

Our government is acting like the criminal element and the bigger threat to US citizen security. Unfortunately nothing results from Congressional investigations.

I joined the thousands calling the White House to get President Bush to pardon Ramos & Compean.

I was shocked to hear him refer to Johnny Sutton as his "good friend"--It seemed to me immunizing mule Aldrete-Davila and screwing two LEOs for over a dime was scummy.

The Feds struck back at Border Patrol officer Jesus Diaz and it was the office occupied by Sutton. FreeAgentDiaz.com hosted by LEOAC

The billions from Afghan poppies and Mexican marijuana and cocaine have corrupted to a point it will take outrage to affect.

Fast & Furious started a crack in the bulletproof world of these cockroaches.

We have a president who openly despises the Constitution and an Attorney General who defiantly refuses to enforce the law.

And agencies actively promoting what they were constituted to prevent.

Officials who oppose this beast risk all.

Unfortunately, after reading all about these obvious felonys our so-called government has committed, NOTHING will ever come of this. There is sooooooo much coruption in government, it is/will be imposible to clean up.

God, what has happened to this country we so dearly loved and believed in?

This is getting way out of hand. No accountability at all from these agencies. People had better wake up fast.

If Sinaloa was getting US support and Los Zetas were getting US support, how many other Mexican cartels are receiving assistance from the US government?

If these groups are getting US aid and using it to murder Mexicans and Americans, there should be public hangings of the officials involved.

“...U.S. federal agents allegedly cut a deal with the Sinaloa drug cartel...”

Sounds similar to the deal the Kennedy clan had with their liquor smuggling business.

OMG...it was true! I heard of this a month ago from the Mexican press.

YOU SEE WHY THAT DEA GUY WAS KILLED?

The old rule was, “kill anyone you want but not US officers —it brings too much heat...”

The the other cartels heard of this arrangement, and therefore then started regarding US officers as de-facto proto-cartel members!

THAT is why suddenly such people were fair game, and he was killed.

Our leadership was so reckless and cowardly that they didn’t even TELL THEIR GUYS of the new danger they faced, see...?

“Oh yeah, as you’re doing your duty down there, there’s just one more thing —YOU ARE A DRUG DEALER NOW....”

Funny but that would have HELPED them —at least they would have known the new danger they faced.

OH MY GOD.

Maybe this is all part of obama's brilliant plan to drive drug prices down.

Page 5 or so of Fox’s document there states that the US would receive the intel from Sinaloa, never interfere with their ops, even calling them and letting them know when US operatives NEARED their area of operations AND:

They would keep all of that completely secret from the Mexican government.

Now:

HOW would you like to be a Mexican cop, knowing that not only were the US actively ARMING the guys killing your co-workers, but that these Americans were *partners* with the killers and were not even TELLING your government any of the info they knew...?

If you were an honest Mexican cop would you ever want to speak with or show your face to US officers or agents?

Hope and change —yeah LOTS of change, as we can see here, yup.

Weird business with drug traffickers goes back to Nicaragua and contras.

I did not see it with my own eyes but know folks whom I had faith in that saw for a fact some Contra leaders were able to transport from Nica areas they controlled, Costa Rica areas they controlled...Eden Pastora, and Honduras areas with relative impunity while the US Govt...Magnus and Bush I admins...worked to expose Nicaraguan Sandies transporting Pablo and Gacha dope...which has been proven on film

it links back even earlier to opium war lord cooperation in the Indochina war...dopers fight commies...give dopers a little slack...black ops or CIA and Military guys often trump LEO needs

Same with AUC and Victor Caranza during Uribe time in Colombia

not sure what the angle is in Mexico though

I had an eyewitness claim to have seen arms being offloaded in Panama for transshipment by air to the Nicaragua Sandanistas before the overthrow of the Somoza government, during the Carter years.

Terry Reed and John Cummings, Compromised: Clinton, Bush and the CIA, SPI/Shopolsky, 1994.

Buddy Young guards the door as inside the bunker North and Clinton argue over profits.

Johnny Sutton immunized Aldrete-Davila--if any U.S. citizen had independently run loads of 700 or 1,000 pounds of marijuana, would Sutton or any other U.S. Attorney have immunized him?

Panama. Noriega. Guilty knowledge. Taken down.

In my view, tracks with the Karzai brother: lit up as CIA paid asset and major druglord--assassinated.

The same deal used over and over: silver or lead.

Why the Tea Party is such a threat: no vulnerabilities to bribe or threat.

The ruling class is not merely a term of art.

Could you explain that? Are you saying that non-enforcement of federal laws against medical marijuana helps the cartels?

FACTBOX-The growing power of Mexico's Sinaloa cartel

CULIACAN, Mexico, Jan 19 (Reuters) - A decade after its leader Joaquin "Shorty" Guzman escaped from prison, Mexico's Sinaloa drug cartel is the most powerful organized crime gang in the Americas despite a government crackdown.

Guzman's cartel is believed to handle 65 percent of all drugs illegally transported to the United States, drug experts say. The Sinaloa cartel is also the most international in the Americas, with cells in Central and South America, Europe, China and India, according to analysts and official sources.

Guzman, 53, was captured in 1993 in Guatemala but escaped from a Mexican maximum security prison on January 19, 2001 in the back of a laundry van with the collusion of dozens of corrupt guards. He has outwitted several major government drives to find him since 2002 including narrow escapes from planned raids on parties in 2007 and late last year, according to Mexican media reports.

Amid accusations that federal authorities protect Guzman, experts estimate his cartel has suffered fewer casualties and arrests during President Felipe Calderon's four-year-old campaign against drug trafficking. But the government says it has made progress in weakening the Sinaloans, including the arrest of Vicente "Vicentillo" Zambada, the son of Guzman's right-hand man Ismael Zambada in 2009, and the killing of senior cartel leader Ignacio "Nacho" Coronel last July.

The outrage of the Clinton State Department over Hondura's ouster of its president seeking an unconstitutional extension in office may have revolved around the four planeloads a day the so-called "coup" curtailed.

It had been reported that China shipped tons of precursors to Mexico for Mexico's superlabs' manufacture of methedrine smuggled into the U.S.

Ramos and Compean, Jesus Diaz, John Carman, F & F, DEA aiding Sinaloa cartel--can there be corruption at a high level, organized crime in our government?

"I assure you there is no gambling in this establishment."
