THE BORDER REPORT
This State Department cable out of Wikileaks caught my eye. 51 FBI informants and 10 DEA “liaison officers” were murdered in Mexico between 2007-09.
When we talk about American law enforcement in Mexico, we generally view the Americans as not being part of the game; for the most part, this has held true since the wars began.
But I wonder about these 61 informants and liaisons. Were the 51 also Mexican informants and therefore murdered for that connection or were they killed because of their ties to the Americans? Same for the 10 liaisons. Were they killed because they were Mexican intelligence officers or because they were working with the Americans?
