As the article says there have been rumors about the arrangement for years.

An investigation by El Universal found that between the years 2000 and 2012, the U.S. government had an arrangement with Mexico's Sinaloa drug cartel that allowed the organization to smuggle billions of dollars of drugs while Sinaloa provided information on rival cartels.

Sinaloa, led by Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, supplies 80% of the drugs entering the Chicago area and has a presence in cities across the U.S.

www.businessinsider.com...


Zambada-Niebla's lawyer claimed to the court that in the late 1990s, Castro struck a deal with U.S. agents in which Sinaloa would provide information about rival drug trafficking organizations while the U.S. would dismiss its case against the Sinaloa lawyer and refrain from interfering with Sinaloa drug trafficking activities or actively prosecuting Sinaloa leadership.

"The agents stated that this arrangement had been approved by high-ranking officials and federal prosecutors," Zambada-Niebla lawyer wrote

Zambada-Niebla also alleged that Operation Fast and Furious was part of an agreement to finance and arm the cartel in exchange for information used to take down its rivals. (If true, that re-raises the issue regarding what Attorney General Eric Holder knew about the gun-running arrangements.)


Just another straw on the back of well meaning evil dumb*sses... The drug war has corrupted society and government; Oh let us count the ways!

I'm sure this is one of the many reasons the dems are desperately trying to pass a non-death penalty bill for federal crimes, now.

Somebody already made a thread about this a week or so ago. It looks like you have all the same data that was in the other thread too.

I must assume that is nothing but a cover story for the real situation. As I've said repeatedly on ATS when this topic comes up, the War on Drugs is a façade, a cover story in total. And here, we have a cover story for a cover story.

In short, the whole scheme is simple. Supple the drug users in the US with drugs, the money is shipped south where the billions are used to keep the richer aspects of Mexico flourishing and the whole apparatus of various levels of governmental functioning (or not) with bribes.

As long as Mexico stays somewhat afloat for the wealthy and middleclass from the influx of that money, then Mexico can barely stay solvent. Seriously cut the flow of drugs into the US and Mexico's economy falls apart and the average Mexican will want to head north creating an immense international headache that would bring chaos, war-like situations to the southern states at the least. There would be an unofficial war by southern citizens against the invaders which could then give way to a genuine US civil war if the federal government wanted to try to accommodate the refugees against the will of the US citizens.

As it stands, the proceeds of drug money going south conveniently keeps Mexico on life-support without much government aid from the US. Stop that illegal flow of case, and the US taxpayer/citizen, by federal decree, would pay in direct, multiple ways for the rescue of Mexico and its self-imposed, dire state of being.

What price does the collective US now pay for helping the cartels continuing to exist? Not much, if you can easily dismiss the drug use of any and all kinds within the ghettos and all across America.

"For the greater good" is code speak for "hypocrisy".

Our law enforcement readily admit that they will lie and possibly violate the law int he "pursuit of justice". Cops who work in narcotics regularly end up in rehab, then reassigned to a different job duty. It happens around here all the time. Our local Media Affairs officer....he got busted back when he was on the narcotics task force. At the same time his wife found out about his girlfriend, who was my across the street neighbor. It was some good people watching during those times!
