Kill the Messenger - Could this be happening in Mexico - Your thoughts

"The three-day, 20,000-word series connected aspects of the 1980s crack cocaine epidemic in Los Angeles to Nicaraguan drug suppliers who, it maintained, had funneled drug proceeds to the CIA-backed contra rebels fighting the socialist-leaning Sandinistas."

Could the CIA have some type of symbiotic relationship with the anti-drug cartel vigilante groups in Mexico? Where's Tom Clancy when you need him?

cbviajero, the constants are:

1. Possible CIA involvement
2. mucho dinero involved
3. The vast sums and resources that both Mexico and U.S. have allegedly (I don't think no one knows for sure) spent billions of dollars fighting the so called War on Drugs.
4. 23 States have legalized medical marijuana, yet the U.S. government still lists marijuana as a Schedule 1 drug. Why is the federal government dragging its feet on the legalization issue?

And then there are the weapons. From Rolly's website, "Owning a Gun in Mexico"

"The Mexican Constitution says:

Article 10 - The inhabitants of the United Mexican States have the right to possess arms in their residences for their security and legitimate defense with the exception of those prohibited by federal law, and those reserved for the exclusive use of the military. Federal law will determine the cases, conditions, requisites, and places in which the bearing of arms by inhabitants will be authorized.

I've seen photos of autodefensas holding what looks to be some military-grade type weapons. Very Interesting - especially considering Article 10 above.

The fact that the autodefensas exist raises the possibility that they may be linked to the U.S. Do I know this for sure? - No. The media has reported that José Manuel Mireles, who for months was the movement's public face, spent many years living in Sacramento and two other prominent leaders, Estanislao Beltrán Torres and Luis Antonio Torres González, have strong ties to El Paso.

The media here has also reported that Comandante Bonita, after spending about fifteen years in the United States returned to Mexico, allegedly because she was tired of the extortion's, rapes and disappearance of people in Mexico.

Conspiracy theories? Perhaps. What's your take?

While looking at stories related to the student massacre, I came across this tidbit from the Los Angeles Times:

" ...some who have moved back here have become disillusioned by the level of infighting among vigilante leaders, and by arrangements made with the government and, in some cases, the cartels."
