|You've got it all wrong. We aren't Mercenaries. We're "Private Security Contractors".|
The Obama Administration is run by idiots (is that news?)
The United States is sending new CIA operatives and retired military personnel to Mexico and may deploy private security contractors to fight drug cartels, The New York Times said.
PRIVATE SECURITY CONTRACTORS? Let's do a translation for the public. Those are called mercenaries.
First, the Obama Administration ships guns to arm the Mexican drug cartels in Operation Fast and Furious. Second, the Administration sends mercenaries and CIA agents to Mexico to fight the cartels his administration just armed.
Words fail me . . . almost.
Either this American Administration is run by total morons or these are deliberate acts designed to destabilise Mexico and / or to get us involved in their internal problems.
Small numbers of CIA operatives and civilian US military employees have been posted at a Mexican military base, it said late on Saturday.
Security officials from both countries work there side by side in collecting information about drug cartels and helping plan operations, the report said. Officials are also looking into embedding a team of American contractors inside a specially vetted Mexican counter-narcotics police unit, it said.
The new efforts have been devised to get around Mexican laws prohibiting foreign military and police from operating on its soil.
They also aim to prevent advanced US surveillance technology from falling under the control of Mexican security agencies with long histories of corruption, the paper noted.
More than 41,000 people have died in violence blamed on Mexico's drug cartels since the end of 2006, when President Felipe Calderon deployed some 50,000 troops to tackle organized crime.
