    Did Feds Allow a Mexican Drug Cartel to Sell Cocaine in the U.S.?Ben on August 19, 2011

    El Paso Times


    U.S. federal agents allegedly allowed the Sinaloa drug cartel to traffic several tons of cocaine into the United States in exchange for information about rival cartels, according to court documents filed in a U.S. federal court.

    The allegations are part of the defense of Vicente Zambada-Niebla, who was extradited to the United States to face drug-trafficking charges in Chicago. He is also a top lieutenant of drug kingpin Joaquin “Chapo” Guzman and the son of Ismael “Mayo” Zambada-Garcia, believed to be the brains behind the Sinaloa cartel.

    You bet this admin did. Gun running and drug trafficking run hand in hand.

    They are already in the business of exporting guns. Why not import cocaine?

    Sort of an import/export bank with federal backing. Like Fannie and Freddie in the housing market.

    Why should things like this be a suprise it has been done before, admitted to being done by the president, and everyone was pardoned.

    Law enforcement seems to do shit like this all the time.

    Look at the BULGER case in Boston as a perfect example.
