    That's how you do it, send in the SEALs secret....ly....... oops.

    Maybe they aren't really after their gun buyers but just want to appear so?

    Didn't both countries announce hands-off policies towards the Cartels recently? The Mexicans tactically and the US told Border Patrol and Homeland Security officers instead of shooting back to hide and call 911.

    I call shenanigans.

    How much longer until America is housing the most wanted criminal in the world and what will that mean for our country?

    El Chapo is a bad dude. Should be brought to justice but it won't really change a damn thing because dozens more are willing to take his place and that's just within the Sinaloa cartel.

    That doesn't even begin to make a dent in their operations nor will it affect the Gulf cartel, Los Zetas, Tijuana or Juarez cartels.

    They may have destroyed Medellin cartel but that was a long time ago and the game done changed.

    the war on drugs is a joke. it hasn't done anything to curb the flow of narcotics into this country. even if the story had some truth to it, as somebody has already mentioned, somebody else will take el chapo's place.

    Want to beat the cartels?

    End prohibition.

    Don't like that idea? Don't worry about it then, just keep sipping your whiskey, smoking your cigarettes, popping those Vicodin and Xanax and forget I said anything.

    Sounds like a Tom Clancy novel.

    I have a hard time taking this article seriously when in the first paragraph this is said: "There are lots of reasons why the report may be off."

    We need to label the Cartels as Terrorist Organizations and go after them like that.

    Yeah, because the "War on Terror" is going much better than the "War on Drugs".

    What would that change?

    It wouldn't stop the incentive to produce, transport, and sell drugs in the U.S. for a profit.

    Do you think that the thugs that go after the cartel leaders are any less brutal than the ones that murder "terrorists"?

    There is no real war on drugs.There is way too much money made by both sides for that.
    Smoke and mirrors

    As far as this being "secret",it wouldn't matter if you told the cartel if the seals really wanted the guy.Somehow they would get him
    If somebody "really wanted" him.And that would be because he crossed the line some how. Killed the wrong person,didn't pay the right ones,bad product or all those other things bad dealers do.

    Or it is a distraction to make him move.
    I don't have to read Tom's books to figure this out.

    I watched a stupid movie on this the other night called "Line". Basically showing if the "line" (pipeline/flow) is interrupted, someone is going down.
    Yes the American spooks were behind the hits.
    Trust me it wasn't worth watching,just someones view of what's really happening on the border

    So, are our Seals operating in a Mexico without the Mexican governments knowledge like Fast & Furious?

    Or does the Mexican government know about it, in which case so do the cartels!!
