    Manuel Rubén Abimael Guzmán Reynoso (American Spanish: [maˈnwel ruˈβen aβimaˈel ɡuzˈman reiˈnoso]; born 3 December 1934), also known by the nom de guerre Chairman Gonzalo (Spanish: Presidente Gonzalo), a former professor of philosophy, is the former leader of the Shining Path during the Maoist insurgency known as the internal conflict in Peru.

    So who’s ready for an American trial of Mexican drug cartel kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman? You may be getting understandably excited about the prospect. After all, the gang lord was already moved from the Altiplano lockup further south in Mexico (and the scene of his now famous tunnel escape) to a cell in Ciudad Juarez, just over the border from us earlier this month. And the Mexican Government has approved his extradition. He’s certainly in high demand on this side of the Rio Grande. We’re looking at bringing him to Brooklyn to stand trial, but he’s also wanted for...

    Guzmans attorney says the drug lord will plead guilty once he arrives if his lawyer can negotiate a reasonable sentence in addition to the medium security detention. The attorney, Jose Refugio Rodriguez, said he discussed the idea with the kingpin during a meeting on February 15. He said Guzman asked him to get in touch with a U.S. lawyer to discuss the process. Guzman, the purported leader of the Sinaloa cartel, has broken out of Mexican maximum-security prisons two times. He slipped out of the Altiplano prison in July through a mile-long tunnel dug under the prison, but was recaptured...

    Oscar-winning actor Sean Penn on Friday rejected Mexico's claim that his secret meeting with Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman was crucial to the drug kingpin's recapture, saying officials were trying to put him in the crosshairs of the feared cartel. Penn also told talk show host Charlie Rose that he regrets the fallout from the Rolling Stone article based on his interview with Guzman. Their meeting in a jungle hideout was the first interview anyone scored with the fugitive drug lord, and Penn said he had hoped it would spur a broader discussion on the drug war. In Penn's first major...

    Mexican drug cartels continue to fascinate the minds of Americans who tend to idolize outlaw gunmen with fast cash, fancy cars, guns and women. However, few realize that Mexican drug cartels are as ruthless and sadistic as Middle Eastern terror groups like ISIS with whom they actually have many tactics in common. For most in America, the closest they have come to a drug cartel is the small-time drug peddler in the street corner, the glamorous TV shows, or the Mexican narco-ballads. However, taking a step back and looking at their entire structure, and how those drugs got from...

    He was part of the team that helped put one of Mexico's most violent drug lords behind bars the same one who escaped from a Mexican maximum-security prison over the weekend. Tuesday, KOB talked to Michael Vigil, a former DEA agent from New Mexico who investigated Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman for years. Vigil says Guzman's escape is not good for the U.S., especially our state. He says Guzman wants to push out the Juarez Cartel and push more heroin through New Mexico. "Chapo Guzman has taken over that area and he controls most of the routes into the United...

    The guy has been locked up in Mexico for years. El Chapo is an escaped prisoner. What escaped prisoner on the run is MORE WORRIED about U.S. elections that are more than a year out... much less ever..., than disappearing off the radar? Attracting more attention would be counter to the counter to the escape plan. Furthermore, why would El Chapo announce it on social media which would attract A LOT of attention, and would attract even more people coming after him when he is still on the run? Something is not adding up here? Just saying..

    Donald Trump on Sunday blasted "corrupt Mexican officials" for letting a notorious drug kingpin escape from a maximum security prison. Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman escaped the prison by riding a motorcycle through a mile-long tunnel that was connected to the shower area of Guzman's cell. It is his second escape, and prison employees are being questioned. Trump noted that the last time Guzman escaped he was free for 13 years. "He has been selling drugs in the U.S. big-time a major kingpin," he said in a statement sent to the media. "He is possibly in the U.S. and his...

    Mexico's billion dollar drugs lord known as 'El Chapo' has gloated on Twitter about his escape from a maximum security jail by taunting authorities and threatening US-presidential hopeful Donald Trump. Joaquin Guzman, billionaire head of the powerful Sinaloa Cartel, made his jail break on Saturday morning and is on the run from Altiplano jail, 50 miles outside of Mexico City, security officials said. His audacious escape saw him dash through the mile-long tunnel system, which led to a building under construction next to the prison - from where he collected clothes left for him by his conspirators.

    MEXICO CITY (AP) Mexico mounted an all-out manhunt Sunday for its most powerful drug lord, Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, who escaped from a maximum security prison through a 1.5-kilometer (1 mile) tunnel from a small opening in the shower area of his cell, according to the country's top security official. The elaborate underground escape route, built allegedly without the detection of authorities, allowed Guzman to do what Mexican officials promised would never happen after his re-capture last year slip out of one of the country's most secure penitentiaries for the second time. If Guzman is not captured immediately,...
