Have US Officials agreed to “clean routes” for Mexican drugs into America?

In Chicago, Mexican Sinaloa drug-cartel member, Jesus Vicente Zambada Niebla, sits in prison.

He’s waiting for his October trial to begin, after three years of delays. DEA agents arrested him in Mexico City in 2009, on drug-trafficking charges.

Why all the postponements? US national security issues are involved.

Niebla wants to introduce evidence he says will show he, and the entire Sinaloa cartel, the most powerful drug-trafficking organization in Mexico, were given immunity from prosecution by the US government.

In return, Sinaloa has been providing US officials with intelligence on lesser drug cartels in Mexico, so they can be taken down.

If this sounds like a deal to permit Sinaloa to bring huge quantities of drugs into the US, that’s exactly what defendant Niebla is implying.

Federal prosecutors admit there are national-security issues in the Niebla trial. They deny Niebla or Sinaloa were ever granted immunity by the US government. However, they have made motions to keep unspecified classified information out of court proceedings.

Bill Conroy, who has been writing groundbreaking articles for The Narco News Bulletin (twitter), quotes Niebla’s lawyers: “The United States government considered the arrangement with the Sinaloa cartel an acceptable price to pay, because the principal objective was the destruction and dismantling of rival cartels by using the assistance of the Sinaloa Cartel—without regard for the fact that tons of illicit drugs continued to be smuggled [by Sinaloa] into Chicago and other parts of the United States and corruption continued unabated.”

US, Mexican Officials Brokering Deals with Drug “Cartels,” WikiLeaks Documents Show: Revelation Exposed in Email Correspondence Between Private Intelligence Firm and Mexican Diplomat

Does this in part explain the rising tide of violence in Chicago? Are we looking at an exact parallel to what the late journalist Gary Webb described, in his explosive Dark Alliance: The CIA, the Contras, and the Crack Cocaine Explosion, about US officials opening the door to massive drug-trafficking in South Central Los Angeles?

Journalist Conroy goes on to reveal a number of relevant emails captured by Wikileaks from Stratfor, a private intelligence company based in Austin, Texas. Stratfor refuses to comment on the emails. The company indicates that, in general, this type of email may be factual or may be intentionally fictitious.

The emails are the observations of a Mexican diplomat code-named MX1. Noting his probable identity has already been published online, Conroy writes, “[Fernando de la Mora Salcedo is] a Mexican foreign service officer who…served in the Mexican Consulate in El Paso, Texas, and is currently stationed [or has recently been recalled] in the Mexican Consulate in Phoenix.”

Here are choice excerpts from Salcedo’s emails, allegedly sent to Stratfor between 2008 and 2011. They bolster the idea that the US government is supporting the Sinaloa Cartel.

April 19, 2010: “…I think the US sent a signal that might be construed as follows: ‘To the VCF [Vicente Carrillo Fuentes] and Sinaloa cartels: Thank you for providing our market with drugs over the years…please know that Sinaloa is bigger and better than VCF…let’s all get back to business [and stop the violence.]’”

June 3, 2010: “They [the US and Mexican governments] want the CARTELS to negotiate with EACH OTHER…if they can do this, violence will drop and the [US and Mexican] governments will allow controlled [drug] trades…The major routes and methods for bulk shipping [of drugs] have already been negotiated with US authorities. In this sense, the message that Sinaloa was winning was, in my view, intended to tell SEDENA [the Mexican military] to stop taking down large trucks full of dope as they made their way into the US. These large shipments were Sinaloa’s, and they are OK with the Americans.”

The explosive nature of the upcoming Niebla trial in Chicago could shed light on Operation Fast&Furious. After all the reasons that have been given for walking guns into Mexico, suppose the true explanation is the most simple? The US government supports Sinaloa, the biggest drug cartel in the world. Therefore, they gave Sinaloa guns.

    Please entertain this: The Border Agents at drive thru stations seem to know just who to “inspect” for drugs etc.. So, they bust him, tear the vehicle apart, put ALL the drugs etc. into LOCKUP. “He” gets Deported to Mexico. BUT! they have to keep ALL that “Evidence” in lockup for “the Trial” (?) Really? Lets say he had 100# of heroine, do they really need all that “Evidence”? (even if they did not deport him so he could go to trial). So what happens to ALL that “Evidence” that has been collecting for how long? Wouldn’t it be simple for the CIA and / or the Cartels to BUY a few or more Agents for the border crossings?
    No truck routes, No special hiways, No tunnels, No Mules and Coyotes. All right there “In plain sight”.

    Seems pretty simple to me. The people who do get busted are either on their own, or working with the organizations that are low enough on the food chain/ not vetted by the gov’t. So your average smuggler out to make a profit, all the way up to members of the smaller cartels, often get popped, because they either don’t know enough about concealment or have already been snitched on by larger cartels, etc. Whereas the really large, profitable shipments are able to make it right on through those same checkpoints, or use routes that aren’t monitored by agencies tasked with “protecting” these routes from drugs.

    But yeah, eventually, after someone has been made to take the fall, the moderate-large (but unvetted) shipments will add up, at which point the CIA will sell them back to the cartels that they’re in bed with, at 100% profit. After all, there’s no oversight on that organization, and who in their right mind would ask to make sure that those drugs are all still being kept? Nobody, because on the face of the issue, it seems preposterous that they wouldn’t destroy it or use it for anything other than evidence. And if you do try and call them on it, you’re unpatriotic and will have your character destroyed, thus rendering you impotent once more.
