    Yesterday, the Mexican military arrested 6 alleged Zeta members involved in the murder of ICE Agent Jaime Zapata in San Luis Potosi, Mexico. The alleged Zeta leader, Julian Zapata Espinoza, confessed to authorities that he shot the ICE agent because he ‘mistook’ him for a rival gang leader.

    However, the arrest of Julian Zapata Espinoza, a.k.a. “El Piolin” or ‘Tweety,’ and his cohorts raises more questions than answers. Mexico’s leading newspaper, El Universal reported that Zapata Espinoza was actually arrested in 2009, but he was later released by the Mexican government. Furthermore, when the Mexican Army raided his ‘safe house,’ they found him and other alleged gang members in possession of several military-issue weapons and uniforms. According to El Universal, these items were ‘exclusively for military use.’

    Reputed Mexican drug cartel czar charged in killing of US agent
    Wednesday, December 21, 2011 WASHINGTON — A reputed Mexican drug cartel leader was charged in federal court in Washington in the ambush slaying this year of a U.S. immigration officer in Mexico - a killing that set off a massive search on both sides of the Southwest border for several assailants after it was learned that one of the weapons was illegally purchased at a gun store in the Dallas area.

    Without question the United States can stop the cartels. We are unwilling to do that because someone might get hurt.

    When they say "military issue-weapons", does this mean weapons used by the military that can be obtained on both the open and black market, or weapons that have gone missing from a U.S. military installation that have serial numbers that will correspond with matching numbers in the source armoury's log? I'm sure that the uniforms/fatigues could've been ordered online, thus undermining what's otherwise being suggested is a collusive conspiracy between corrupt personnel and a Mexican cartel.

    The Zetas were originally trained at the notorious "School of Americas" in Ft Benning Georgia by none other than the US Government itself. They're a federal drug gang, working for the US government and laundering their money through the big banks and wall street. Anyone still believing the war on drug garbage is pretty dumb. :p
