    Well isn't this special? I wonder how much of the bailout money went to the drug cartell in Mexico?

    Just before sunset on April 10, 2006, a DC-9 jet landed at the international airport in the port city of Ciudad del Carmen, 500 miles east of Mexico City. As soldiers on the ground approached the plane, the crew tried to shoo them away, saying there was a dangerous oil leak. So the troops grew suspicious and searched the jet.

    They found 128 black suitcases, packed with 5.7 tons of cocaine, valued at $100 million. The stash was supposed to have been delivered from Caracas to drug traffickers in Toluca, near Mexico City, Mexican prosecutors later found. Law enforcement officials also discovered something else.

    Western banks ‘reaping billions from cocaine trade’
    Mon, Jun 04, 2012 - The vast profits made from drug production and trafficking are overwhelmingly reaped in rich “consuming” countries — principally across Europe and in the US — rather than war-torn “producing” nations such as Colombia and Mexico, new research has revealed. Its authors claim that financial regulators in the West are reluctant to go after Western banks in pursuit of the massive amount of drug money being laundered through their systems.

    When you factor in the Attorney General authorizing the shipment of 3,000 illegal weapons to Mexico and the federal government preventing states from defending themselves from criminal illegal Mexican aliens it seems to point to a conspiracy beyond money laundering.

    Not likely. Heard anything about "Fast and Furious" lately? Nope.

    The US Gov't is completely corrupt.
