Over the past twelve years, the US government had a deal with Mexican drug cartel Sinaloa that allowed the group to smuggle billions of dollars of drugs in return for information on its rival cartels. Written statements made b y a Drug Enforcement Administration agent and a US Department of Justice official in the US District Court of Chicago following the 2009 arrest of Jesus Vincente Zambada-Niebla – son of a Sinaloa leader Ismael “el Mayo” Zambada and the organizations alleged “logistics coordinator” indicate that DEA agents met with top Sinaloa officials over 50 times beginning 2000.
“The DEA agents met with members of the cartel in Mexico to obtain information about their rivals and simultaneously built a network of informants who sign drug cooperation agreements, subject to results, to enable them to obtain future benefits, including cancellation of charges in the US,”
Relying on over 100 interviews with current and former government functionaries on both sides of the border, as well as official documents from the US and Mexican governments, Mexico’s El Universal concluded that the US Drug Enforcement Administration, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and the US Justice Department had secretly worked with Mexican drug lords. The controversial conspiring led to increased violence across Mexico, where many tens of thousands have been murdered in recent years, the newspaper found after its year long probe into the whole ordeal. Basically saying, the US Government not only allowed the Mexican cartels to operate, they also worked with them, and also fueled hundreds of murders, brutal in and of themselves. The US agents and the shady deals with Mexican drug lords even sparked what the paper called a “secret war” in Mexico.
The newspaper’s investigation also confirmed long held suspicions that US authorities were signing secret agreements with Mexican drug cartels-especially Sinaloa, which CIA operatives have said was a favorite for use in achieving geopolitical objectives. Supposedly without knowledge or approval of officials in Mexico, ICE, and DEA with a green light from Washington DC, made deals with criminal bosses allowing them to avoid prosecution for a vast crime spree that has included mass murder, corruption, bribery, drug trafficking, extortion, and more. In exchange, cartel leaders simply had to help US officials eliminate their competitors, a win-win situation for crime bosses who prefer to operate without competition or fear of prosecution.
To no surprise, none of the American Federal Agencies implicated in the machinations would comment on these revelations. However, looking at court documents and official records it published online, as well as numerous interviews with federal agents, convicts, and analysts, the paper was able to conclusively confirm what experts and even officials have been arguing for years: THE US GOVERNMENT HAS AND IS DEEPLY INTERTWINED WITHIN THE DRUG TRADE. IT WAS NOT CLEAR WHAT STATUTORY OR CONSTITUTIONAL AUTHORITY WASHINGTON DC BELIEVES WOULD AUTHORIZE ITS FUNCTIONARIES TO PARTICIPATE IN, PROTECT, AND FACILITATE WANTON CRIMINAL ACTIVITY.
But isn’t it obvious. When it is beneficial to us we will allow mass murders and drugs. When it is beneficial to us we will start wars. When there is money to be made and power to be had we will allow everything that imprisons Americans every day. We are fueled by a mass need and greed not by justice, not by freedom.
