High-Ranking Mexican Drug Cartel Member Makes Explosive Allegation: ‘Fast and Furious’ Is Not What You Think It Is

A high-ranking Mexican drug cartel operative currently in U.S. custody is making startling allegations that the failed federal gun-walking operation known as “Fast and Furious” isn’t what you think it is.

It wasn’t about tracking guns, it was about supplying them — all part of an elaborate agreement between the U.S. government and Mexico’s powerful Sinaloa Cartel to take down rival cartels.

My question:

Whether these allegations are true or not, if this man has not been told to say these things by the cartels, why is he still alive?

My comments:

Personally, given how thoroughly the cartels have infiltrated Chicago, and how the Left reflexively thinks they can pick winners and loosers (as in one cartel over another), I tend to believe there is a great deal of truth and a connection here between the cartels and the Obama Administration.  I also believe Obama knows all about it.  It is the easiest assumption to make that also makes sense out of all the “executive privilege” nonsense over “Fast and Furious.” 

So, while the Left will accuse me of making wild accusations, all I am doing is making a “scientific application” of the principles of Ockham’s Razor.

  1. As noted yesterday when you first peddled this, if you can’t trust a “high-ranking Mexican drug cartel member,” who can you trust? This is pitiful, even for your favorite source, Joe, and the writer apparently is an idiot.

    And how nicely ironic that you choose to run this–for the second time–on the same day that you put up another post whining about outrageous unsubstantiated allegations from the left.

    “if this man has not been told to say these things by the cartels, why is he still alive?”

    Maybe because everyone involved realizes that the story is unlikely, at best, that Zambada-Niebla’s motives are obvious, and so no one outside of a Glenn Beck fantasyland is likely to take it seriously.

    From the article: “To be sure, Zambada-Niebla is a member of one of the most ruthless drug gangs in all of Mexico, so there is a chance that he is saying whatever it takes to reduce his sentence, which will likely be hefty”

    Gee, ya think?

    Also from the article: “However, Congress and the media have a duty to prove without a reasonable doubt that there is no truth in his allegations.”

    Uh, that’s not how the American judicial process works. In the U.S., people have to be proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, not the other way around. If Congress had to “prove without a reasonable doubt” that there was no truth to the allegations of felons facing trial, it wouldn’t have time for anything else.

    Of course, if we want to look at president being involved in murder, we need look no further than the drone wars. But conservatives don’t bother pursuing that, perhaps because some of them apparently approve of murdering Muslims: http://www.salon.com/2012/08/04/obama_the_pioneer/

  2. This isn’t far fetched.

    USA has been picking winners and losers in other countries for more than a century. That is why so many people’s from all over the world hate America.

    What is different is conducting these operations in our domestic territory and so close to home with murderous criminal organizations.
