Following close on recent news that the U.S. is deploying CIA operatives and
mercenaries contractors in Mexico to fight the drug war, and the State Department’s announcement that Plan Mexico will continue indefinitely, we now hear that the war has expanded to bringing Mexican commandos into the U.S. to stage attacks.
Yes, you heard that right.
The Obama administration has expanded its role in Mexicoâ€™s fight against organized crime by allowing the Mexican police to stage cross-border drug raids from inside the United States, according to senior administration and military officials.
Mexican commandos have discreetly traveled to the United States, assembled at designated areas and dispatched helicopter missions back across the border aimed at suspected drug traffickers. The Drug Enforcement Administration provides logistical support on the American side of the border, officials said, arranging staging areas and sharing intelligence that helps guide Mexicoâ€™s decisions about targets and tactics.
Really? We’re allowing commandos from another country to launch attacks from inside our borders?
