U.S. Widens Role in Mexican Fight
WASHINGTON — The Obama administration has expanded its role in Mexico’s fight against organized crime by allowing the Mexican police to stage cross-border drug raids from inside the United States, according to senior administration and military officials.
Mexican commandos have discreetly traveled to the United States, assembled at designated areas and dispatched helicopter missions back across the border aimed at suspected drug traffickers. The Drug Enforcement Administration provides logistical support on the American side of the border, officials said, arranging staging areas and sharing intelligence that helps guide Mexico’s decisions about targets and tactics.
Officials said these so-called boomerang operations were intended to evade the surveillance — and corrupting influences — of the criminal organizations that closely monitor the movements of security forces inside Mexico. And they said the efforts were meant to provide settings with tight security for American and Mexican law enforcement officers to collaborate in their pursuit of criminals who operate on both sides of the border.
Although the operations remain rare, they are part of a broadening American campaign aimed at blunting the power of Mexican cartels that have built criminal networks spanning the world and have started a wave of violence in Mexico that has left more than 35,000 people dead.

U.S. Widens Role in Mexico’s Fight Against Crime
When The New York Times comes out with a story like this it speaks volumes about the effectiveness of the Obama administration and the lack of any effort being put forth to secure THIS nation!
Ladies and Gentlemen, I have never done one thing in my entire life that could even be remotely called *Un-American*, but some are going to think otherwise after this post. After this post I am certain that the Obama regime will label me an anti-American that makes threats against the President.
I am NOT making threats, not in ANY way; what I am doing is stating the obvious and saying what it appears that many Americans are to cowardly to say!
Barack Hussein Obama and Eric Holder must be removed from power!
These despicable cretins have now allowed the United States to be invaded, not just by ILLEGAL immigrants, no, now they have ALLOWED, and it seems that possibly they have encouraged the Mexican police and military to operate on U.S. soil.
I don’t care how *RARE* these operation may be, you do NOT allow Mexican police and/or Mexican commandos to operate on U.S. soil; this is a violation of everything we as Americans hold as beliefs in our hearts! This is a violation of American sovereignty and goes against everything American patriots stand for and believe in!
Many aspects of the campaign remain secret, because of legal and political sensitivities. But in recent months, details have begun to emerge, revealing efforts that would have been unthinkable five years ago. Mexico’s president, Felipe Calderon, who was elected in 2006, has broken with his country’s historic suspicion of the United States and has enlisted Washington’s help in defeating the cartels, a central priority for his government.
Legal and political sensitivities? If this is being kept *secret* because of LEGAL concerns and sensitivities, that line, in and of itself substantiates everything I have just posted above.
American Predator and Global Hawk drones now fly deep over Mexico to capture video of drug production facilities and smuggling routes. Manned American aircraft fly over Mexican targets to eavesdrop on cellphone communications. And the D.E.A. has set up an intelligence outpost — staffed by Central Intelligence Agency operatives and retired American military personnel — on a Mexican military base.
If the DEA and CIA are operating on Mexican soil, with the permission of the Mexican government, at their request, that doesn’t bother me, that is what the DEA and CIA do, and have done for years.
For Mexican forces to be operating here, on U.S. soil, in ANY capacity, that is wrong.
We have seen the effects of lax border enforcement, we have seen the effects of an out of control Department of Justice and BATFE as they implemented, and then lost control of Operation Fast and Furious; am I the only one that sees the possibilities for graft, corruption, misuse and loss of American lives and sovereignty in an operation of this manner?
“There has always been a willingness and desire on the part of the United States to play more of a role in Mexico’s efforts,” said Eric L. Olson, an expert on Mexico at the Woodrow Wilson Center. “But there have been some groundbreaking developments on the Mexican side where we’re seeing officials who are willing to take some risks, even political risks, by working closely with the United States to carry out very sensitive missions.”
Eric L. Olson is an expert on Mexico? Great, what does he know about American patriots and OUR beliefs regarding Mexican Special Forces operating on U.S. soil? Little or nothing I am sure.
Still, the cooperation remains a source of political tensions, especially in Mexico where the political classes have been leery of the United States dating from the Mexican-American War of 1846. Recent disclosures about the expanding United States’ role in the country’s main national security efforts have set off a storm of angry assertions that Mr. Calderon has put his own political interests ahead of Mexican sovereignty. Mr. Calderon’s political party faces an election next year that is viewed in part as a referendum on his decision to roll out this campaign against drug traffickers.
Mexicans are worried about Mexican sovereignty but U.S. authorities are NOT concerned with OUR sovereignty?
“The cartels don’t expect Mexican police coming from the U.S.,” said one senior military official. None of the officials interviewed about the boomerang operations would speak publicly about them, and refused to provide details about where they were conducted or what criminal organizations had been singled out.
This may come as a surprise, at least for some; Americans don’t expect Mexican police coming from the U.S. either!
This story has me angry beyond angry, there is more from the original source but I am not going to post it, folks can read it at the link above, I am going to be astounded if American patriots, Second Amendment and Tenth Amendment supporters don’t get as upset about this as I am!
