This news article comes under the category of hmm....I didn't know that for sure, but all signs were certainly there. Here are some excerpts:


June 5, 2011 at 6:14 pm
Document, Prepared At the Request of a “Tea Party” Congressman, Indicates the 7th Special Forces Group “Has Conducted Operations in Every Latin American Country”.

A Pentagon document has come to light that confirms the U.S. has put special operations troops on the ground in Mexico as the drug war there continues to escalate, notching some 40,000 murders since late 2006.

The revelations in the briefing material are important because, to date, neither the Pentagon nor the State Department has confirmed that U.S. special forces have been deployed inside Mexico — a politically volatile subject in that Latin American nation given the rising drug-war death toll there and the “Yankee” history of U.S. Gunboat Diplomacy in the region.

This occurred despite the fact that the briefing document was marked “For Official Use Only,” which, according to Ken McGraw, spokesman for the Pentagon’s U.S. Special Operations Command, means the document was “not to be released publicly.” McGraw adds that he does not “know the specifics” of the 7th SFG operation referred to in the briefing document, explaining that “by the end of the year, we [USSOCM] will have operations in 120 countries.”


And this part of the article is especially interesting:


However, someone as of Saturday, June 4, had removed the link on the EDC’s Web site that directs readers to the site where the briefing document can be downloaded. [See screen shot here of material removed]. The EDC Web-site download link for the document is still active, though, and can be accessed here — as well here should that EDC download link be deactivated in the future, with a screen shot here of the EDC download link as it exists as of the publish date of this story.

Not sure what happened in your case. The document is 20 pages long, and took me a while the first time to get it to load, etc. Maybe they are having server overload?

Something is wrong with the "source" link for sure...it let me in and I was on it for about 30 sec. and then explore quit working.

I am going to see if I can go exploring again!

It is odd though for sure!

Edit: Link works okay now...takes awhile to load but working fine....very interesting!

They were probably just used to escort US Weapons into Mexico,
and escort the Drugs back into the US.

Doesn't surprise me. Napolitano made reference to it about a year ago and was quickly hushed.

Furthermore, US is flying drones in Mexico.

It's the US drug war, I don't see how they could not be involved.

This is from the first page of the twenty page document:


7TH SPECIAL FORCES GROUP (AIRBORNE)
COMMAND OPERATIONS BRIEF

Congressman Miller and members of Florida’s 1st District
14 May 2009
The overall classification of this presentation is UNCLASSIFIED//FOUO


The article indicated that it was not supposed to have been released to the general public; the documents are now listed as "unclassified".

I would say upon quick reflection, most of these incursions have been documented from the Banana revolutions on...it is a well known fact of our involovement in almost every central american nation, and we are easlily recognized as influencing militarily: Columbia, Venuzuela (pre Chavez) Peru, Ecuador, Guyana, French Guyana, Brazil, Uraguay, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina - and there are more as my brain fizzles...I guess my point is that although the thread deserves comment becasuse it is important and it is amazing; if you've been paying attention in history class you knew this already...good thread!

This is the most logical scenario played out yet, unfortunately.

Why does the wording "requested by a Tea Party" member seem bothersome?

Would requested by a "Democrat or Republican" made any difference?

I fail to understand why that's in the report.

Anyone? I don't like any of them so I'm not leading the question.

It seems to me that russia having the bomb protected the balance of power on this planet. If they hadn't of had it, we would have used it alot more, and the world would be a much worse place to live today... maybe

I hope those kind of incursions do some good instead of harm.Mexicos law systems are corrupted to the maximum.The only law is the gun,u can be killed in any croos fire that make u look ur in the wrong place at the wrong time most of the crimes and murder cases go unnoticed or never make it to court,usually nobody gets the jailtime the penal code mandates.Just look at the drug lords arms like the loong arm of the traffiking,for u OBL being multiplied by 1000.

Someone else, DaddyBare (sp?), started this same topic thread AFTER you. No one has closed it and lead the others here.

Don't know why more people aren't interested.

Good question. The answer could be a positive or a negative depending upon
your perspective.
