Did the Feds Willingly Allow Cocaine Into the US?

Confidence-building stuff all around.

U.S. federal agents allegedly allowed the Sinaloa drug cartel to traffic several tons of cocaine into the United States in exchange for information about rival cartels, according to court documents filed in a U.S. federal court.

The allegations are part of the defense of Vicente Zambada-Niebla, who was extradited to the United States to face drug-trafficking charges in Chicago. The court in Chicago held a status hearing today and ordered the U.S.

Our government seems to be running some sort of incompetence-based barter system, guns to Mexico in return for cocaine.

    This can’t be going on with out the higher ups knowing something. It’s time to route the criminals from the Justice Department. Starting at the top. If it happened under Holder, then he is responsible.

      It happened from 2004 to 2009 when he was arrested.  Does Holder get credit for arresting him?

        He gets the credit for being the largest known gun supplier to the Mexican drug cartels ever. Does that satisfy you?

    Started in 2004, so it’s clearly–SIGH–on Bush’s watch.  If we don’t see some indictments and convictions of the brain dead morons who allowed this, it’s on Obama’s, too.

    And hopefully we can figure out where Sinaloa sent their cocaine, so the bereaved relatives and friends of those killed for the coke can sue the pants off those responsible, too.  Criminy.

      On bush’s watch, you say?
      I wonder if his daddy taught him how to do it?
      He was a well known cocaine smuggler back in the day.

        Or, rather, you are a well known slanderer even today.  While some people with whom the elder Bush worked did traffic cocaine, that doesn’t mean that the elder Bush supported it, silly.

          Not according to the people who smuggled it with him, Mr. Bubba.

    Incompetence, double-dealing, greed, and the quest for power are equal opportunity vices and not restricted to the self-proclaimed adherents of one ideology or another.

    If it were that simple, it would be easy to tell the good guys from the bad guys.

    The only reason this was posted was to embarrass Obama.

    Too bad you douchebags can’t read the actual article.
