Apparently Homeland Security finally is getting hip to narcoland on the American streets, and at last officially has acknowledged that the gangbangers are nothing more than "hired foot soldiers for Mexican and Central American transnational criminal organizations" as reported by Ildefonso Ortiz for Breitbart News.
Jack Riley, the special agent in charge of the DEA's field office in Chicago, IL, previously said that the local street gangs are proxies for the Mexican drug cartels in the battle for turf as reported by Armen Keteyian for CBS News:
Riley says Mexican cartels have a significant influence in Chicago's gang violence problem. "Let's take the gloves off on that," he said. "We know that the majority of the drugs here in Chicago, cartels are responsible for. We know that the majority of the murders are gang related. So it is very clear to see the connection and the role." As it stands now, at least three major Mexican cartels are battling over control of billions of dollars of marijuana, cocaine and -- increasingly -- heroin in this city.
President Obama and his useless administration long have insisted that the drug violence in Mexico is not spilling over the border into America; of course, the President is always the last to know, and the clueless clown only learns about our country's collapse from news reports.
