U.S. Military Doing 'Limited' Drug War Work In Mexico, Napolitano Says


U.S. Military Doing 'Limited' Drug War Work In Mexico, Napolitano Says
By Mark Memmott | NPR

"Our military, in certain limited ways, has been working with the Mexican military in their efforts against the drug cartels" inside Mexico, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano told NPR's Robert Siegel this morning. Her comments were among the most extensive to date from a U.S. official about the U.S. military's role in the drug war raging across the border....

"Just to be clear," Robert continued. "Are you saying that (Mexican President Felipe) Calderon has expressed an openness toward a uniformed, U.S. military presence within Mexico?"

Napolitano's response:

"Yes. Let me be very, very clear (because) this is a very delicate subject. ... Our military in certain limited ways has been working with the Mexican military in their efforts against the drug cartels. But, it is at the request of the Mexican government, in consultation with the Mexican government. And it is only one part of our overall efforts with Mexico, which are primarily civilian in nature."

Quote: ""Our military, in certain limited ways, has been working with the Mexican military in their efforts against the drug cartels" inside Mexico, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano told NPR's Robert Siegel this morning".

"in certain limited ways"? No kidding. It's very limited in terms of good work, or work of good conscience, for a the U.S. drug war is extremely, wholly phony, criminal, imperialist, etc. Any good conscience work on the part of the gov't in this is so limited that the only occurrence of any is really just cover, smokescreen, deception.

I already knew that, and anyone who's read about the story of the famous investigative journalist named Gary Webb, or who has listened to former CIA agents or station chiefs, and former DEA and LAPD officers against the phony drug war and international drug trafficking by the CIA, DEA, and, if I recall correctly, the FBI having its hands in this business, already knows this. Former CIA station chief in Angola, etcetera, John Stockwell, and former DEA agent or officer Michael Levine, both provide video and audio interviews, though John Stockwell also provided a video-taped lecture, on international crimes of the CIA and DEA; the latter with respect to drug trafficking, and the CIA with respect to international drug trafficking and many other criminal covert ops.

BUT, people who already knew that the U.S. drug war is wholly phony, etcetera, should nevertheless view the excellent and very recent interview (linked further below) with Kevin Booth, who is a Texan filmmaker, founder of Sacred Cow Productions, and director of two documentary films, "American Drug War: The Last White Hope" and "How Weed Won The West". The latter film is about the fact that California, along with thirteen or so other states, legalised the use of medicinal marijuana and, for that purpose, cultivation and sales; BUT it also tells viewers about the CIA and DEA federally acting in hegemonious, ... ways against state rights to legislate this legalisation.

The first of the two documentaries is available at Google, and the official websites for both films are www.americandrugwar.com and www.howWeedWonTheWest.com.

The following is the excellent interview with Kevin booth and it occurred on March 16th, 2010, or maybe a day or two earlier.

Alex Jones also had Freeway Ricky Ross on for an excellent and strongly relevant interview, which occurred on Feb. 3rd, 2010.

These are greatly appreciable interviews.

We learn (albeit not newly for most people) that Big Pharma. has certainly been lobbying very strongly against legalised medicinal marijuana, and other natural products, including vitamins and more, but we also learn that the alcohol and cigarette manufacturers have been lobbying strongly too for the same outcome. That's in addition to the CIA wanting to keep marijuana illegal, wholly, because letting it be legalised, even if only for medicinal uses, would greatly diminish the revenues the agency derives from covertly trafficking heroin and cocaine.

The CIA uses these revenues to avoid needing to ask for funds to be authorised by the Congress, for then the CIA is legally to be held accountable for how the money is spent. The black market revenues don't require accountability to anyone outside of those on the inside of this secret "little" business the CIA ops branch conducts.

And the Pentagon is also guilty in this, for helping to protect the international black market trafficking the CIA profits a LOT from, but maybe also being guilty in other related respects.

"In certain limited ways"? Napolitano surely knows better.
