NEW YORK (AP) — U.S. federal court documents show Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernández and some of his closest advisers were among the targets of a Drug Enforcement Administration investigation.

A document filed by prosecutors on Tuesday in the Southern District of New York mentions Hernández as part of a group of individuals investigated by the DEA since about 2013 for participating “in large-scale drug-trafficking and money laundering activities relating to the importation of cocaine into the United States”.

The Hernandez Presidential Family Drug Cartel -under DEA investigation since 2013. "...in large-scale drug-trafficking and money laundering activities relating to the importation of cocaine into the United States”.

Honduras sends us drugs, disease, crime and indigent illiterate people that burden the US economy to the tune of billions of dollars.

US sends Honduras billions of dollars in financial aid since 2013 to thank them for the exportation of these destructive forces.

America First or we will be destroyed by invasion and drained financially.

Big Surprise. Better check out the guys who lead Guatamala and El Salvador also. In addition to drugs and money laundering, I suspect all our foreign aide went into their off shore bank accounts.

At the WH, under the Honduran flag, then-Pres Obama met with El Salvador's Pres Salvador Sanchez Ceren
(from left), Guatemalan Pres Otto Perez Molina and Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez.

used to ride the US gravy train..........and vote Democrap.

Neither do their kids

I see all of this as a Clear And Present Danger.

I wonder what Teddy Roosevelt would have done? If Patton had become president, what would he have done?

That works. Or, how about the most decorated Marine in recorded history, lieutenant general Chesty Puller? My favorite story about him was when some of his Marines went to Tijuana before shipping out the next day. They got into a beef with some of the local trash and the messycan cops jailed them until they came up with the appropriate ransom.

Puller got some Marines, a couple Ma Deuces and went to Tijuana. They surrounded the fleabag jail and Gen Puller informed the messycans that he wasn't going home without his boys.

The jailed Marines departed the next day right on schedule.

And, don’t forget Raul Castro and pals, and the Banco de Cuba in Switzerland and Spain. He and his brother murdered General Ochoa for doing what THEY were doing— and he was going to spill to our DEA. Amazing, commie coke mobsters.

Honduras is also major clintooonian “investment” land— foundation has “condo” investment “communities” they laundered the bill clinton coke money (that is the powder he didn’t snort himself, causing the need for nasal septal surgery— documented back in Arkie—saw) through. And probable Panama Papers investment there as well.

Why we had to get rid of Noriega (sorry to say, bush real estate... etc.) back when. So sick of this.

The War on Drugs restricts the billions from drug purchases to criminal hands, ensuring them the resources to corrupt officials foreign and domestic. Prohibitions by their nature contain the seeds of their own failure.

Hmmm... Preet Bharara was in charge of SDNY then, no?

Interesting… reminds me of the days of John Kerry and the Sandinistas...maybe a Preet Bharara connection.

The cartel involved is a Honduran ally of the Sinaloa cartel: Cachiros. Bharara was involved in prosecuting them: "Aunque los Rosenthal se defienden de los señalamientos de lavar dinero para Los Cachiros, la acusación presentada por el fiscal Preet Bharara, ante la Corte del Distrito Sur de Nueva York, afirma que ellos conocían que esas operaciones financieras involucraban actividades ilícitas y las promovían, además de transferir fondos a EE. UU. y disfrazar la naturaleza ilegal de los mismos.": Los Cachiros, la mafia que hundió a los Rosenthal

And author connects up to Alexander Cockburn who connects up to none other than Truthout’s source Wilkerson from the Niger affair:

Wilkerson told a similar story in a recent critical biography of Rumsfeld by Washington-based British journalist Andrew Cockburn.

Looks like the protect Iran at all costs crowd is trying to pull another Japan Today / Capitol Hill Blue caper.

Maybe the Watergate thing isn’t working for them so they are reaching for an Iran Contra gotcha.
