Now that you've read the article, What do you think about that commit, "moved some operations to San Diego in recent years, seeking a safe haven from gang wars and law enforcement crackdowns south of the border."
OK, you move your drug operation to San Diego so you don't have to worry about Law Enforcement? WTH?

OK, now you get it, "a top official in the Baja California attorney general's office who allegedly passed along information obtained from U.S. law enforcement to cartel leaders."

OK, I want to know the name of this person. It is: "Jesus Quinones Marques, director of the international liaison office for the Baja California attorney general's office."

So, you have current and former Mexican law enforcement officials charged and the director of international affairs for Baja California attorney general.
I was also curious about that statement, About the feeling of a Safe Haven in San Diego California.
What does that tell you about Southern California?

It tells me, Southern California is conceder to be a Sanctuary for Criminals and I believe the most of their Law Enforcement Hands are Tied by the Politicians getting their kick backs.

What it sounds like to me, is that the mexican police that are not paid off were getting too close.

Better to come over here and get protected properly by our government.

Our government is much better at corruption.

What really happened here is a drug cartel avoided paying off the feds and smuggling drugs into the USA through the proper agencies, and have become a target for the feds and co-operative rival cartels.

But of course, the only truth is that which the feds and the MSM feed a gullible public.

In my opinion, of course.

I know the US has a government, and a very corrupt one, indeed.


US government involvement in drug trafficking is nothing new.
