Forbes Rick Ungar, Contributor - "I write from the left on politics and policy." Was Operation Fast And Furious Really Part Of A Secret Deal Between The DEA And Mexico's Sinaloa Drug Cartel?
to Mr. "left on politics and policy" Ungar, a "major Mexican newspaper"
is saying that agreements were made "dating back to 2000 and continuing
through 2012" between the U.S. DEA and "Mexico's largest drug
trafficking gang, the Sinaloa Cartel."
...the deal involved the cartel providing information about rival Mexican drug gangs to the DEA in exchange for the U.S. government agreeing not to interfere with Sinaloa shipments into the United States and the dismissal of criminal charges against cartel participants.
you read you will see the author insists on concentrating on the guns
and bargains (and that's bad enough) the DEA made with the better of the
bad guys and ignores the part of the bargain where "The Sinaloa Cartel
was allegedly permitted to traffic massive amounts of drugs across the
U.S. border from 2004 to 2009."
...would Americans feel better (about Operation Fast and Furious) if they knew that the weapons were actually being used as part of a strategy to take scores of drug traffickers belonging to Sinaloa's rival gangs off the playing field?
Indeed, if this is really a war, one might argue that this would be a pretty ingenious way to kill enemy soldiers.
This leads me to ask a provocative question--
If the "divide and conquer" strategy was being applied in Mexico as a part of the deal with the Sinaloa cartel--the same being based on what many would claim was a successful strategy used to scale back the drug trafficking originating in Colombia--was Fast and Furious the result of a U.S. government that couldn't shoot straight or a well organized effort to allow the Sinaloa crew to kill off thousands of rival drug traffickers to our mutual benefit?
sense that it is to "our mutual benefit" to kill off rival drug dealers
and all the while allowing "massive amounts of drugs across the U.S.
border?" How about going in there and helping wipe out ALL dealers and
NOT allow drugs across the border? Lordy I feel sorry for the Mexican
So just whose mutual benefit is this to
the "left on politics and policy" genius speaking of? Obviously "our"
government because it sure as hell is not to the benefit of our country
for Americans to become addicted to drugs!
Or is it?
Kool-aid or heroin -
pick your poison here folks and as an added bargain, we and the media
will blame all this on gun shows, gun dealers, and red necks!
The "provocative question" should have been WHO in our government is benefiting from "massive amounts of drugs" flooding our country!
