Do we need the DEA to Teach Money laundering Tactics?

 

Money laundering

Money laundering

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 agents, primarily with the Drug Enforcement Administration, have handled shipments of hundreds of thousands of dollars in illegal cash across borders, those officials said, to identify how criminal organizations move their money, where they keep their assets and, most important, who their leaders are.

They said agents had deposited the drug proceeds in accounts designated by traffickers, or in shell accounts set up by agents. 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. 

Agency officials declined to publicly discuss details of their work, citing concerns about compromising their investigations. But Michael S. Vigil, a former senior agency official who is currently working for a private contracting company called Mission Essential Personnel, said, “We tried to make sure there was always close supervision of these operations so that we were accomplishing our objectives, and agents weren’t laundering money for the sake of laundering money.”

Another former agency official, who asked not to be identified speaking publicly about delicate operations, said, “My rule was that if we are going to launder money, we better show results. Otherwise, the D.E.A. could wind up being the largest money launderer in the business, and that money results in violence and deaths.”

Those are precisely the kinds of concerns members of Congress have raised about a gun-smuggling operation known as Fast and Furious, in which agents of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives allowed people suspected of being low-level smugglers to buy and transport guns across the border in the hope that they would lead to higher-level operatives working for Mexican cartels.

After the agency lost track of hundreds of weapons, some later turned up in Mexico; two were found on the United States side of the border where an American Border Patrol agent had been shot to death.

Have we become Barbarians!

USA and Mexico

USA and Mexico

Everyday we look at the news and we find that people are killing each other. The reasons are many, but none are worth what goes on. We have become a society, if I dare call us a society, we are representative of the animal cult! But in reality we are worse. We kill for no reason! We talk about the other people and unfortunately it is us, who committs these atrocities against human society.

In Oregon a young man was killed by a complete stranger for what reason. The stranger attacked a young man in the prime of his life with a machete knife, and almost decapitated him. What was the reason, and what was to be achieved by this cruelty! This is one incidence that has occurred in recent days in the USA.

Mexico is totally out of control, over-run by Drug cartels and the numbers of persons killed daily is beyond belief. We are living in a state of denial, these killings are happening daily even as I write. This fanaticism for money,power and control is leading us to the edge of human understanding, and is damning us to a bitter end.

Mexico used to be a lovable country full of happy people, but due to the International cry for more drugs it has virtually destroyed the country. Day after day, the killing goes on. The people are afraid to speak, and those that do, are usually killed, of their familes are intimidated, Case in point La Ninja who was a blogger she was attacked and killed because she spoke up. The Drug cartels did not like that so, she was silenced with a Machete and her body thorwn in the streets. There are many cases similar to this one.

The USA with their “Fast and Furious” fiasco contibuted weapons that were used agaisnt the local people of Mexico and now the US Government is ashamed for what they did. But, no-one has accepted responsibility. All we get is just talk! The weapons keep on comming from Texas, down to Guatemale and back into Mexico. President Obama will not accept responsibility, nor does anyone in the current Government. It is easy to blame the previous Governments for they no-longer share the responsibility.

A Barbaric society are we, for we tolerate the drug barrons, dealers, traffickers and any form of corruption. Yes, we tolerate it, for it is all about Money, and we have moved our society to believe that money is the only solution to all problems. We have forgotten the human side, and for this we are now in a world wide situation of daily market chaos. We have lived through the Arab summer and the changes that the people cryed for, and gave their lives to make their lives better. In some cases this may work in others the chaos continues, and will continue.

Yes, we are barbaric, because we do not understand what it is to live in peace. We have too many weapons, and the human demand/consumption for drugs world wide  is out of control. Until, we can control the production, transportation and marketing of these illicit drugs our world economies will continue to fall. Billions of dollars are made in the business each year, leading to drug addiction, money laundering, murder, kidnapping and human trafficking. Our governments have no-idea what is to be done or how to stop this flow of drugs, money and trafficking. Some governments are saying legalize drugs, this will decrease the trafficking and reduce the money being laundered as this is a direct way to hurt the Drug Cartels. Yet, there is no simple solution.

The concept of Western culture is generally linked to the classical definition of the Western world. In this definition, Western culture is the set of literary, scientific, political, artistic and philosophical principles that set it apart from other civilizations.

From the above definition; where do we fit in?

Los Zetas-No. 2 boss ,Rigoberto Zamarripa Arispe-captured!

Rigoberto Zamarripa Arispe, No 2 Los Zetas Boss

Rigoberto Zamarripa Arispe, No 2 Los Zetas Boss

A Los Zetas drug cartel boss and four associates were arrested by marines in Cadereyta, a city in the northern Mexican state of Nuevo Leon, the Navy Secretariat said.

Rigoberto Zamarripa Arispe, “presumably the No. 2 boss in the command of the Los Zetas criminal organization” in the area, was arrested as a result of an anonymous tip, the secretariat said.

The 36-year-old Zamarripa Arispe was arrested at a ranch in Cadereyta along with Juan Luis Martinez Perez, 54, and Juan Fidencio Perez Saucedo, 27.

Marines seized eight rifles that the suspects had buried on the property, four handguns, 48 ammunition clips, ammunition, a vehicle and communications equipment.

Jose Galvan Palacios, 43, and Ruben Nicanor Tijerina Garcia, 31, were arrested at a house in Cadereyta in a separate operation targeting members of the same Los Zetas cell.

Los Zetas, considered Mexico’s most violent drug cartel, mainly operates in Tamaulipas, Nuevo Leon, Coahuila and San Luis Potosi states.

Los Zetas has been battling an alliance of the Gulf, Sinaloa and La Familia drug cartels, known as the Nueva Federacion, for control of the Monterrey metropolitan area and smuggling routes into the United States.

Heriberto Lazcano Lazcano, known as “El Lazca,” deserted from the Mexican army in 1999 and formed Los Zetas with three other soldiers, all members of an elite special operations unit, becoming the armed wing of the Gulf drug cartel.

After several years on the payroll of the Gulf cartel, Los Zetas went into the drug business on their own account and now control several lucrative territories.
