      U.S. Deepens Secret Military Intervention in Mexico

      While pursuing better diplomatic relations with Latin America, the Obama administration is escalating drone flights over Mexico, trains thousands of Mexican security forces, conducts eavesdropping and regularly collaborates with Special Forces units. The escalation is being kept secret because it violates Mexican law and national sensitivities. The deepening penetration cannot happen without “allowing Mexico to have plausible deniability,” one retired U.S. official told the New York Times.

      Thirty-five thousand Mexicans have been killed since the government of Felipe Calderon came to office in 2006. The war is fueled by massive American drug consumption and thousands of weapons purchased in the U.S. and smuggled to Mexico. Earlier this month, a whistleblower in the ATF revealed that the agency permitted entry into Mexico hundreds of weapons sold to gunrunners in the United States in an operation called “Fast and Furious.”
