Not only misleading, but ridiculous. Nothing but a bunch of young punks who attack unarmed civilians.
According to a 2003 story in the Brownsville Herald, a unit of 31 Mexican soldiers who trained in the US Army School of the Americas at Ft. Bragg, NC deserted to form the nucleus of the Zetas. They started out as enforcers for the Gulf Cartel but later broke away to form their own cartel organization.
They have emerged as leaders of one of the two most powerful cartels in Mexico because of their military training and the discipline of their "soldiers" and because of their willingness to use horrific tactics against anyone who opposes them. The original leaders have apparently passed on their training at camps scattered around Mexico.
That murderous thugs have been trained by the US Army SOA program is no aberration. Over the past 30 years virtually every leader of a Latin American military coup or of a significant massacre of civilians or other major abuse in Latin America has passed through the SOA. All this is well-known and highly documented. What makes the Zetas different is that they decided to privatize their thuggery. US taxpayer dollars at work.
