World Finance's 2008 Man of the Year award was bestowed upon Sir Allen Stanford as he clearly stood out when, two years ago, he began cautioning those in the financial services industry that an impending global economic storm was brewing. His ability to lead the Stanford Financial organisation through this current turbulent environment unscathed and his commitment to philanthropic causes in the cities around the world where Stanford conducts business were the deciding factors in selecting him as this year's award recipient.
Agents claim he is more worried over alleged links to a Mexican drug gang, which beheads and mutilates victims, than he is about being found by the authorities.
Sir Allen, FBI sources say, is suspected of money laundering for the "Gulf Cartel" and the crooks may fear for their funds.
It has been claimed Mexican authorities recently seized one of the 58-year-old's aircraft after allegedly finding cheques on board linked to the Gulf Cartel.

You are all playing a part in the movie. Keep to the script and see where we end up.
I Just got back from Matamoros, Mexico and did not see anything but several poor people trying to make a living.
I was in Tijuana, Mexico in September and was all about the city and seen nothing. While talking to a native of Tijuana about the portrayed violence and crime she made a startling revelation about their views. At that time it was on the news in Mexico about a lady that had microwaved her baby some where in America and they thought it was the most horrid thing. So she was viewing us as some kind of sick society that she was afraid of as much as they are trying to drive fear into us about Mexico. There was a shooting downtown while I was there involving the police and drug dealers but the same thing happens in L.A. every day.
Texas Is full of camera's and has a military check point inside the united states were I was pulled over and harassed by the military. This was I thought going against the Constitution of the United States? Guess no one cares things will just get much worse. Keep watching The movie....
Not all is as it seems.

Mmk...I'm sorry, but this isnt new news. I LIVE on the border, and I can tell you hands down that we hear about oh...20-30 shootings a day, mostly cops and business owners being murdered, bodies being found, such and so forth.
Believe me, the problem will not spill over, and should it do so, the Border Patrol HERE can easily handle it.
Then of course [tin foil hat on!!] maybe those in washington want something to happen as a good excuse for:
a- A distraction for the american public so that other things can get done unnoticed.
b- A reason to pass more laws to help keep us safe ...
c- _____________ (insert something here that just doesn't make sense.)
