The Elvis sightings have begun anew, this time the president of Honduras suggests Joaquín “Shorty” Guzmán Loéra, Latin America’s most wanted man, is hiding out in his country.

Earlier this week, the Guatemalans leaked to the media that the narco non grata may have been killed in a shootout in their country.

The gringos offer a $5 million bounty for Shorty’s arrest, but he’s worth far, far more as a fugitive.

When the Shorty Visits Guatemala story broke, I speculated that it was Guatemala’s attempt to grab a slice of the security aid package the U.S. is giving Mexico. Now, the Hondurans are acting up – with the help of our very own Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

The Bush Administration’s been pushing its Merida Initiative, a $1.4 billion, three-year program to prop up Mexico’s security forces against the cartels who’ve gone absolutely apeshit.

This fiscal year, Guatemala received $21 million.

Honduras received $47 million in foreign aid in fiscal 2007 and $43 million this fiscal year.

But I’m just some back-cactus country boy; of course there is no way a Latin American country would be so unsophisticated as to invent tales of mythical narcos using their country as a hide-out in order to draw some U.S. funding their way. Right? Of course not.

Or, and this is Saturday Morning Rambling Thought Number Two, maybe Sheriff Joe Arpaio had it right about Honduras and spent $157,000 training its police force for a really, really good reason. Like the capture of Shorty Guzmán.

Now wouldn’t that be a kick in the shorts of his biggest critic, the Phoenix New Times?

  1. Sheriff Joe helped train Honduran cops?Cool! But then, Honduras has always had a special place in the American government’s heart.. The original “Banana Republic”. The only Latin American country to have an ex railroad locomotive driver from New Orleans become the general of the Honduran Armed Forces!

  2. no way they caught el chapo, not el chapo bours LOL… why doesn’t anyone mention VICENTE CARRILLO AND HIS JL SIDEKICK, besides drugs are they not part of a organ trading ring, oh well maybe next time…

  3. in ciudad juarez, everybody knows that the carrillo family is involved in the las muertas de juarez case, there is no serial killer nor the snuff film industry like they are trying to make it look, but how can the people denounce it if the police and even some politicos are involved in such heinous crimes?…

  4. Well all I can say is that the government of Guatemala is extremely corrupt. They are getting money to fight drugs but they r best friends with the narcotrafficants. President colom just declared that people are starving and nobody is starving there but there was a lot of fat people. He’s a crook and is lying to other contries to get money. He’s to busy stealing and have not time to run this country!!! Janano baboso
