Mexican Prez’s Ex-Guard Sold Military Weapons to Drug Cartels

“A Mexican officer assigned to guard President Felipe Calderón was accused of leaking information to drug cartels in exchange for bribes, training hit men through a private security firm, and supplying military weapons to groups like the Zetas, according to a U.S. diplomatic cable.” The information comes to us via elpasotimes.com. As I’ve said before, Los Zetas and their main competitors are NOT buying their weapons in dribs and drabs from Bob’s Gun Stores in Los Estados Unidos. To even suggest such a thing is the height of absurdity. No wait: it’s official U.S. government policy, courtesy of the Gunwalking federal agency known as the ATF. Perpetuated by the President of Mexico and President of the United States. What’s that all about?

    Well those guns probably did come from the US, but I am pretty sure our government gave them to the Mexican government. I don’t think they had to buy them.

    I’m shocked — SHOCKED! — to find corrurption in Ol’ Mexico. What’s next? Ice in Antarctica? I’m sure El Presidente got his cut of the proceeds.

    Am I the only person not even SLIGHTLY surprised by this? The only surprise to me is that it’s been confirmed.
