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...
