US-Trained Assassin Teams Now Deployed in Drug War
Former CIA Asset Who Revealed Presence of US Special Forces in Mexico Says Hit Squads Targeting Narco Splinter Groups
Bill Conroy reports in NarcoSphere.com:
"A small but growing proxy war is underway in Mexico pitting US-assisted assassin teams composed of elite Mexican special operations soldiers against the leadership of an emerging cadre of independent drug organizations that are far more ruthless than the old-guard Mexican “cartels” that gave birth to them.
These Mexican assassin teams now in the field for at least half a year, sources tell Narco News, are supported by a sophisticated US intelligence network composed of CIA and civilian US military operatives as well as covert special-forces soldiers under Pentagon command — which are helping to identify targets for the Mexican hit teams."
This is how Pablo Escobar was hunted down and killed.Mark Bowden's Killing Pablo: The Hunt for the World's Greatest Outlaw tells how U.S. military intelligence officers tracked Escobar by his cell phone calls. Some people think that Delta Force or Seals were with the team that killed him, one shot to the head, with him running no less. Good work.
The ironic thing is that to fight the worst of the worst, our government has to make deals with the lesser evil. In Mexico's case, that appears to be the Sinaloa Cartel.
Misbehaving Cops Roundup
A Harris County deputy constable is facing a criminal investigation for allegedly fondling a woman he stopped for a traffic violation earlier this month, department officials confirmed. Pct. 3 Constable deputy Christopher Kerr, 32, was allowed to resign on Aug. 26 in lieu of firing after his superiors received a complaint from the female motorist, said Chief Deputy David Franklin.
From TheEagle.com in Bryan College Station:
A deputy constable was arrested by College Station police Wednesday night on a charge of kidnapping, officials said.
Agustin Rubio, who is one of seven deputies assigned to Precinct 2, was seen by several witnesses when he approached a woman just before 2 a.m. Sunday near the intersection of Fraternity Row and Deacon Drive.
Friends of the woman saw the interaction and called her parents after Rubio placed her in handcuffs and into the back of his patrol cruiser.
According to police, the father called local jails attempting to locate his daughter after speaking to her friends, but had no luck.
She called her parents at 5:53 a.m., telling them she woke up in a parking lot in the 1200 block of Wellborn Drive.
College Station detectives met with the woman that same morning and began an investigation.
They were able to locate surveillance footage that shows the 41-year-old Rubio in his patrol cruiser leaving the parking lot that morning.
Kidnapping is a third-degree felony punishable by up to 10 years in jail.
