    More than 60 suspects have been arrested in a federal sting operation that has taken down a drug and weapons trafficking ring involving members of San Diego's Iraqi community and a major Mexican drug cartel.

    Federal officials said Thursday that the suspects were linked to the Chaldean Organized Crime Syndicate were arrested.

    Smugglers were shipping drugs from El Cajon to Iraqis in Detroit, where the Chaldean syndicate is based, authorities said.

    El Cajon and federal police say they have seized 18 pounds of methamphetamine, narcotics, cocaine and other drugs; more than 3,500 pounds of marijuana; $630,000 in cash; four IEDs; and more than 30 guns, including assault rifles.

    I would like to see her walk the streets of Mexico. She lives in la-la land. And to boot she was the governor of AZ and saw many things first hand - gets to WA and is deep in denial and see things through rose colored glasses!!! This administration needs a house cleaning badly!!!
