The countries have been working with the US to find corrupt politicians that are working with organized crime. Espionage has been part of that. The
leaks from government officials and military officials to organized crime. The government officials are making money helping the organized crime
laundry money, make international trips with cargo and even leaking intelligence operations to them so they can avoid detection.
Mexico Pemex is ran by the Mexican government. The corrupt officials have been helping the Zetas laundry money through a government ran oil company
Pemex. Now I can't tell you what steps were taken by the US or Mexico on all the money the Zetas had in that company dummy company working under
Pemex. But it seems it was probably taken considering they bombed the Pemex headquarters.
Colombia had the same BS going on with government officials helping drug cartels avoid the War on Drugs air craft surveillance program. That is why
the Colombia Intelligence Agency was shut down. They were working with drug cartels on protecting the shipments. That is why you had the prostitute
thing in Colombia when the President visited. It was a case of payback by embarrassing the Secret Service and President for getting the agency shut
Another connection of all this is what the US has done after all of the arrest of officials and organized crime figures in these countries. The US
funded and supported building new agencies from the ground up. Colombia has been given large amounts of money and has been working with the US to
build a new Intelligence agency. Right now Mexico is building a version of the CIA in its country. That will legally allow the US to work in Mexico
on fighting drug cartels in the Mexican governments eyes. They had laws they prevented other countries from doing it until this new agency was formed
or in the process of being formed. The military bases in Northern Mexico have raised issues in the Mexican government because the US military has been
using them to fight drug cartels in Mexico. Mexico found a way to make it legal. Or at least make it top secret so the people in Mexico have no right
to know about?
Turkey I have not looked to much more into it on what they have done since they arrested hundreds of generals other military officials. Not sure how
much of a stir it made with the different agencies there. But I am sure the US will gladly help out and try to take over or at least infiltrate their
