    An investigation by El Universal has found that between 2000 and 2012, the U.S. government had an agreement with Mexico’s Sinaloa drug cartel that allowed the organisation to smuggle billions of dollars of drugs in exchange for information on rival cartels.

    Sinaloa, led by Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, supplies 80% of the drugs entering the Chicago area and has a presence in cities across the U.S.
    There have long been allegations that Guzman, considered the “world’s most powerful drug trafficker,” coordinates with American authorities.

    But the El Universal investigation is the first to publish court documents that include corroborating testimony from a DEA agent and a Justice Department official.

    The written statements were made to the U.S. District Court in Chicago in relation to the arrest of Jesus Vicente Zambada-Niebla, the son of Sinaloa leader Ismael “El Mayo” Zambada and allegedly the Sinaloa cartel’s “logistics coordinator.”

    Zambada-Niebla’s lawyer says that in the late 1990s, Castro struck a deal with U.S. agents in which Sinaloa would provide information about rival drug trafficking organisations while the U.S. would dismiss its case against the Sinaloa lawyer and refrain from interfering with Sinaloa drug trafficking activities or actively prosecute Sinaloa leadership.

    "The agents stated that this arrangement had been approved by high-ranking officials and federal prosecutors,” the lawyer wrote.

    Evidently there is some kind of deal between the government of the United States and the big international banks that laundered the drug money.

    Who said the government of the United States was operating the biggest illegal drug running operation in the world? Oh that's right it was me.

    Drug Smuggling DEA calls Marijuana Legalization ‘Reckless and Irresponsible’

    DEA desperate to keep blood money flowing

    The Drug Enforcement Administration’s chief of operations pleaded with lawmakers during a Senate hearing Wednesday, warning over the alleged dangers of marijuana legalization at the state level.

    “It scares us,” James L. Capra said according to the Washington Post. “Every part of the world where this has been tried, it has failed time and time again.”

    Only one day after court documents revealed the DEA to be smuggling billions in drugs with Mexico’s notorious Sinaloa cartel, backing up a 2011 report by the El Paso Times, the federal agency seemed desperate to keep its blood money flowing uninterrupted, calling the growing legalization movement “reckless and irresponsible.”

    “This is a bad experiment,” Capra said. “It’s going to cost us in terms of social costs.”

    While the social costs are to be debated, it seems unlikely the DEA is concerned over the social cost of incarcerating millions of Americans for purchasing drugs the agency itself helped ship into the country.

    Nations Largest Cocaine Smuggler Revealed: The DEA

    Newly released documents, and testimony from Justice Department and DEA officials now show the stories of government running cocaine are true.

    An investigation conducted in Mexico found the American government allowed that country’s largest drug cartel, Sinaloa, to operate without fear of persecution. That groups is estimated to be responsible for 80 percent of the cocaine coming into the country through Chicago. In exchange, the leaders of Sinaloa provided the DEA information on rival gangs.
