U.S. Agents Launder Mexican Profits of Drug Cartels

E-mail Print PDF

Undercover American narcotics agents have laundered or smuggled millions of dollars in drug proceeds as part of Washington’s expanding role in Mexico’s fight against drug cartels, according to current and former federal law enforcement officials.

The officials said that while the D.E.A. conducted such operations in other countries, it began doing so in Mexico only in the past few years. The high-risk activities raise delicate questions about the agency’s effectiveness in bringing down drug kingpins, underscore diplomatic concerns about Mexican sovereignty, and blur the line between surveillance and facilitating crime. As it launders drug money, the agency often allows cartels to continue their operations over months or even years before making seizures or arrests.

TVNL Comment: Former LAPD officer Michael Ruppert exposed CIA drug running and drug money (cash) being infused into the US banking system decades ago. He was almost killed for doing so. This is not news.
