    Mexico City (CNN) -- Mexican authorities captured the top leader of one of the country's most violent drug cartels Tuesday, officials said.

    Federal police captured Jose de Jesus Mendez Vargas, also known as "The Monkey," in an operation in the state of Aguascalientes, Mexico's national security spokesman said.

    Spokesman Alejandro Poire called Mendez the "principal head" of La Familia Michoacana cartel and said his capture was the federal government's "most overwhelming blow" to the group.

    "This capture destroys what remained of the leadership structure of this criminal organization," he said.

    I will believe it is working when American troops are asked to come in and deal with this issue. Until then, nothing will change.

    It's simply whack a mole...

    As important as the captures are (three in two weeks), it is important to note that it is election time in Mexico; July 3rd. Makes you go hmmmm....

    Seems as if it isn't one thing, it's another about drug cartels.

    Drug Cartels Using Drones Now to Identify Empty Areas Along the Border

    49 Decapitated Corpses Found between Monterrey and US Border


    Video at border showing drive shafts, car batteries, and other hiding places for meth, heroin, cocaine, and other drugs being smuggled by cartels at border

    Drug abuse in Emergency Room PDF


    What a mess. 90,000 cars going back and forth at some borders on a daily basis.

    According to a quick glance, they're also finding a lot of drug cartel smuggling going on at just about every airport.

    By air, by land, and by sea...
