Skip to comments.DEA, U.S ATTORNEYS SECRETLY MET WITH DRUG CARTELS IN MEXICO TO OBTAIN INFO ON RIVALS
Posted on 03/14/2014 9:40:22 AM PDT by mgist
U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) agents and U.S Attorneys held secret meetings with drug trafficking organizations, especially the Sinaloa cartel, on Mexican soil, revealed Mexico-based newspaper El Universal. The DEA and the U.S. Attorney's office are both components of the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ). Official and court documents from the U.S and Mexican governments were cited as the source in the Jan. 6 news report. Court documents show that the U.S. government knew and authorized those meetings, which resulted in drug seizures, arrests, and an increase in drug cartel violence in Mexico. The paper published excerpts from U.S. court documents to support their claims. Breitbart News confirmed the validity of the court papers. El Universal alleges that the DEA operations were carried out without the knowledge of the Mexican government. The paper reported that it obtained the court and official documents in the course of a year. During that time, it also conducted interviews with more than a hundred active and retired officials from both countries. In an effort to obtain information on their rivals, DEA agents and U.S. attorneys met with leaders of Mexican drug trafficking organizations, especially the notoriously violent Sinaloa cartel. That is the same trafficking organization that received the bulk of the firearms intentionally dispensed to drug cartels in Mexico under ATFs 2009 Fast and Furious" operation according to a congressional investigation. ATF is a DOJ component as well. In December 2011, CNSNews.com reported that the gun-walking operation was linked to a drug-trafficking immunity deal between the U.S. government and the Sinaloa cartel by a defendant who was awaiting trial in a Chicago federal court at the time.

This has been going on for decades.
Lazy LEOs want front page results with low risk to themselves.
It doesn’t hurt that they also get paid off by the big guys, in the process.
Explains why those two border patrolmen went to jail.
Where is Johnny Sutton now? He was dubya’s boy.
How’d that work out for them with Whitey Bulger?
Theorem: In a tyranny, everyone is a criminal, except the government or anyone who works for the government or is part of the government.
And what did they give in return?
Intel on north-of-the-border LEO missions?
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Wipe out drug cartels AND big government: legalize.
Thanks for being such loyal supporters. /s
Glad someone made that point early in the thread. Drug War corruption did not start with Obama.
Drugs are really bad...but the drug war is really just growing a huge prison industry...the largest of all civilized nations. We have lost our country, almost.
Holder DOES have a way of standing with criminals against the law biding...
Maybe Holder’s boys met with them to come up with an ‘agreed upon lie’ to stop any Fast and Furious investigations.
Uncle Scam, the CIA, the Banksters and the Drug Cartels have been partners for years. George “Poppy” Bush and this other son, Bill Clinton, know all about in from their Mena days.
Still think at some level this was tied into an attack on gun owners AND the 'vast right wing conspiracy' ... The truth on this will be uncovered.
Legalize what exactly and how far do you want to go? These cartels have a much larger portfolio than marijuana. The real problem is corruption in goverment. Our goverment and the banking system. The war in Afghanistan and other middle east countries is no different than the cartel wars in central America. We just pick a side and make sure they win.
This is pure Clinton and Obama - Monte. Get your facts straight.
Liz - this is a must read...
The Bush family learned the trade when daddy Bush was the CIA director.
Legalize all drugs. Do you really think everybody is going to go straight for the most poisonous potion available? Really?! The popularity of many hard drugs seems to ebb and flow with the fanaticism of the enforcement of so-called gateways like marijuana. Those seeking such escape sometimes have gone to heroin or meth because it was easier to make, conceal and get than growing marijuana.
Besides, the government, especially the federal government, never had the authority. If you support the War on Drugs then you are helping the Left support Wickard v Filburn that expanded the interstate commerce clause on which it is base into every nook and cranny of your life because you don’t have the guts to try to pass a prohibition amendment carve out of drugs for federal enforcement.
If you don’t support either Wickard or an amendment, then state by state bans won’t work because their borders are porous and importation will come from the least restreictive state, just as occurred with alcohol from 1900-1919 that led to the amendment.
Besides, the intent of the interstate commerce clause was to facilitate, not inhibit, trade between states. And drugs, until the Third Awakening religious movement of the 1880s, along with gambling, guns and prostitution, were considered individual rights. It wasn’t until the religious right met and got in bed with Progressives around 1900 that they found government willing to impose their religious views in return for their support for progressive management of the economy.
Is that what you support?
Soros has been pushing for drug legalization, including heroin, since 1996. If Soros wants it, it's bad. He (they) have spent millions and they have obviously influenced many people like you. I grew up in Miami in the 80's and 90's. That was a legitimate drug war. There is no "drug war" right now. Holder's response to the heroin deaths is a medicine for first responders. He is in charge of the DEA!!! When I was growing up there was cocaine. Since there really was a war on drugs and shipments were seized daily, cocaine was expensive. Kids and people with limited resources didn't have easy access to drugs. There were no deaths that I knew of. I knew one addict, in my entire life, and I know a lot of people. The crap they are bringing is cheap. They aren't stopping the massive distribution of highly addictive and dangerous heroin, so it is cheap. It is cheap and therefore very appealing to silly kids curious, or trying to have fun. No bueno. The governments job is to protect citizens. Heroin destroyed China, and reality is that drugs are already legal to Pharma industries who ruthlessly supply highly addictive opium products in pill form and they are abused also. The "failed" war on drugs was a Soros campaign, but the fact is we didn't have all this crap around when Bush was president. What is going on now is whack. Just this last week I read about a toddler going to day care with heroin in his jacket. The heroin being sold out of McDonalds! It's ridiculous. NO WAY, legalization is Beelzebub Soros baby, and he wants the death of this nation.
2014 looms---and vote-crazed Obama needs to act fast.
Dummycrats need mucho latino votes.
Obama plans to fellate a latino on the Capitol steps .....broadcast live on Univision.
Looks like Sinola's got several willing candidates.
So do you support the authority of states under the 10th Amendment to regulate intrastate marijuana?
