Cocaine Smuggler Revealed: The DEA
documents, and testimony from Justice Department and DEA
officials now show the stories of government running cocaine are
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

cartel working with the federal government is run by . He is
considered to be the world's most powerful drug trafficker. In
addition to Chicago, his group also maintains cocaine operations
in several major cities around the country.
Written statements were provided to a U.S. District Court in
Chicago, confirming the alliance between the DEA and Mexico's
largest cocaine cartel. The written testimony, combined with
other evidence, shows DEA officials met with leaders of the
Sinaloa cartel more than 50 times between 2000 and 2012. This
would mean DEA-authorized drug smuggling goes back to at least
the beginning of the George W. Bush administration, and
continued for year under Barack Obama.
One of the groups leaders, Vincente Zambada-Niebla, claims the
American government also sent military-grade weapons to Sinoloa.
According to the latest revelations, it was these weapons which
were part of the Fast-and-Furious scandal. Automatic firearms
which disappeared during that operation, led by Eric Holder,
were used to kill U.S. Border agents.
This latest evidence and testimony points toward a massive
scandal, involving both Republican and Democratic
administrations. At the very least, this provides the best
evidence so far that the Federal government was sponsoring the
smuggling of billions of dollars of cocaine into the United
States. Worse still, weapons purchased for the U.S. military may
have been sent to the cartel, and used to kill American agents.
