U.S. Government Invokes National Security to Conceal Deal Cut with Mexican Drug Cartel

Media Cover Up: U.S. Government Invokes National Security to Conceal Deal Cut with Mexican Drug Cartel

Tuesday, 4. October 2011


Mainstream Media Assists Government in Cloaking Evidence of an Ugly Duplicity in the So-Called Drug War


nieblaOn Saturday, October 1, 2011, investigative journalist Bill Conroy of the Narcosphere reported scandalous and highly troubling new developments in the criminal case against accused Mexican narco-trafficker Jesus Vicente Zambada Niebla. The breaking story unravels the U.S. government’s ugly national-security interests in the drug war by exposing a quid pro quo deal between the US government and the most powerful international narco-trafficking organization on the planet- the Sinaloa “Cartel,” and the US government’s recent attempt to cover this up by filing a motion in the case seeking to invoke the Classified Information Procedures Act (CIPA), a measure designed to assure national security information does not become public during court proceedings.

Zambada Niebla, son of one of the leaders of the Sinaloa “Cartel,” arguably the most powerful international narco-trafficking organization on the planet, argues in his criminal case, now pending in federal court in Chicago, that he and the leadership of Mexico’s Sinaloa drug-trafficking organization, were, in effect, working for the U.S. government for years by providing US agents with intelligence about rival drug organizations.

In exchange for that cooperation, Zambada Niebla contends, the US government granted the leadership of the Sinaloa “Cartel” immunity from prosecution for their criminal activities — including the narco-trafficking charges he now faces in Chicago.

The government, in court pleadings filed last month, denies that claim but at the same time has filed a motion in the case seeking to invoke the Classified Information Procedures Act (CIPA), a measure designed to assure national security information does not become public during court proceedings.

CIPACIPA, enacted 30 years ago, is designed to keep a lid on public disclosure in criminal cases of classified materials, such as details associated with clandestine FBI or CIA operations. In this case, however, the invocation appears to be for the purpose of covering up a scandalous and shady quid pro quo deal between the US government and a drug cartel. Not only that, the Niebla case also threatens to further expose another US government scandal:

It is important to note again that most of the weapons allowed to cross from the US unimpeded into Mexico by ATF’s Fast and Furious were going to the Sinaloa “Cartel,” according to a report issued in July by Issa and Grassley.

So, given Zambada Niebla’s claim ithat “some of the [Fast and Furious] weapons were deliberately allowed by the FBI and other government representatives to end up in the hands of the Sinaloa “Cartel,” it seems his attorneys may want to pose some serious questions to witnesses suspected of having knowledge of that alleged act, including DEA’s Roberts, as well as the special agent in charge of the FBI’s New Mexico operations, Carol K.O. Lee and the U.S. Attorney for New Mexico, Kenneth J. Gonzales.

Such a prospect can’t be very uplifting for the prosecution in Zambada Niebla’s case and might explain, in part, why there is an effort afoot by the US law-enforcement and intelligence officials to cloak the revelations, the evidence, that might surface in the case under the seal of national security.

Prosecutors on Monday, Oct. 3, filed a motion in federal court in Chicago rebutting the accused Mexican narco-trafficker’s argument that he has been denied access to critical evidence in preparing his defense:

In their pleadings, prosecutors again affirm the government’s position that there was no immunity deal offered to the accused narco-trafficker or to the leadership of the Sinaloa drug-trafficking organization. The pleadings filed by the prosecution do not address directly why the government is seeking to invoke national-security procedures for Zambada Niebla’s case

Monday’s filing by prosecutors confirms that Zambada Niebla’s case does raise national security issues that require, according to those prosecutors, that special procedures be established by the court — under a 30-year-old law known as the Classified Information Procedures Act — to assure that classified materials do not become public during the court proceedings.

There seems to be another equally troubling and scandalous angle to this story: the US media’s synchronized and orchestrated black out of this massive scandal, most likely at the behest of the US government:

To date, the US mainstream media has been completely silent on the US government’s effort to invoke CIPA in the Zambada Niebla case; so, kind readers, Narco News is the only authentic news publication providing you with the scoop.

Conroy’s final sentence succinctly sums up the reality in the US government’s so-called War on Drugs:

The future of the for-profit prohibition industry and the drug-war pretense that props it up could well depend on assuring that the public remains in the dark…

I am going to add my own little sentence to Conroy’s: …and the US media has been playing its role exceptionally well in this “assurance” project.

I am going to ask our readers to treat this Boiling Frogs Post update as a Code Red Alert for US Media Cover Up, and take the following actions: [See article link]

The prosecutor has a major problem. The defendant is entitled to the documents or they can dismiss the charges. I don’t doubt that the drug cartel had those assurances. How else can the feds explain giving them the weapons? If it was an undercover operation, they would have made arrests long before they did.

Boy they sure have nerve.

Illegally selling guns to Drug Cartels then claim CPI.

No classification should be allowed to cover up blatant illegal behavour by an agency of the Gov. Or are they trying to hide Obama’s part in this. I can’t imagine such activity WITHOUT Presidential “finding”.

WHO WHAT WHEN did Zero know.

“Rhetorical question: How far will Obama go to remake America in his vision?”
~~~~~~~~~~~

MM: Do you think we should link this to an F&F ping also? Looks like we are getting closer and closer to the BIG BIRDS MOTIVE (following my maxim that BO & thugs ALWAYS try to kill as many birds with one stone as possible).

I just heard a caller on a radio program make a cogent argument that Obama [and thugs] may be setting up machinations in order to take the same advice he gave his “cousin (?),” Raila Odinga.

That comment certainly brought back memories.

I guess we can now claim “National Security” issues over just about anything. How about “National Security” in relation to abortions, or bank robbery, or speeding on an inter-state highway.

What a strange mess we’re in when “National Security” can be invoked to cover up treasonous activities perpetrated by Feds.

The security of the “nation” is now defined as the security of a corrupt, treasonous Federal government.

I don’t believe this is what our Founders had in mind.

I'd be extremely interested in finding out exactly how long he and others in the cartel have been working under the protection of the U.S. government. I suspect strongly that it didn't start with Zero. 

... which would explain the media's silence on this. They protect the demopublican and republicrat parties.

Sorry, I missed that. When you posted to me on the other thread that "We need crosses, holy water, silver, garlic, and wooden stakes," I was going to say you could add a representative logo to your F & F ping design---or better yet---that graphic of Holder & BO behind bars that appears often on FR threads.

Then I thought better of it because your glorious and informative F & F ping already takes up one page :).

~~~~~~~~~~~

I found this thread article by listening to the mind-blowing interview below. Edmonds didn’t discuss this thread topic (I went to her website www.boilingfrogspost.com).

She DID discuss all the many present and former members of Congress who are foreign lobbyists paid by foreign countries.

Edmonds was an FBI translator who inadvertently became a whistleblower by doing her job. She and a roomful of other translators were tasked with listening in on and translating foreign phone calls. It turned out that many of these phone calls were going to current and previous members of Congress and evidenced some very shady dealings.

The FBI, State Dept, & WH higher-ups (of various administrations) did NOT want to “know” about these revelations.

Her summation is that our government is so corrupt and infiltrated that it no longer represents “we the people.”

Most certainly her expose some years ago was covered on FR, but I have not had a chance to do a search.

“Rhetorical question: How far will Obama go to remake America in his vision?”

You ask this of a person who has no respect for a persons
life or liberty. Just like Stalin, the lives of half the
population of the US is a small price to pay if Obama can
realize his communist goals.

This member of that half of the population thinks otherwise.

In exchange for that cooperation, Zambada Niebla contends, the US government granted the leadership of the Sinaloa “Cartel” immunity from prosecution for their criminal activities — including the narco-trafficking charges he now faces in Chicago.

Ah. That explains the $205 million cash stash found by Mexican police about four years back. Probably not the first such *arrangement* then, and the Chicago connection is...interesting....

I’ve felt for a long time that our government looks the other way on a lot of stuff like this. I don’t know if it’s intelligence related—as this article would lead me to believe—or if a whole lot of people from the bottom to very high up(maybe on both sides of the border) are making a whole lot of money.

I believe due to one or another(or even both)reasons nothing will ever be done about our borders or the drug cartels.

Islamofascists coming in add another layer of stink to all of it. Something could probably be done about that as well, but for whatever reason, everyone looks the other way.

The powers that be are killing us by degrees.

Wow! That's an amazing stack of stuff you've arranged here. Thanks!

If Mexico is a failed state in a civil war between drug cartels, why would Obama and Holder pick one over the other, ship guns to them, and then act like they had nothing to do with it?

My guess is money- cash flowing into accounts no one will be able to trace. Let's face it, government jobs only pay so much and when you're crooked to begin with (and Chicago crooked at that), picking a winner ought to pay something. In addition, violence that spills over into the U.S. would justify their crackdowns on gun owners- the dream of any true Marxist (Hillary, Schumer, et al).

Yup, big money in drugs and if you're looking for a payoff (for looking the other way, reducing the odds of capture for drug runners, etc.) it probably helps to deal with a monopoly.
