Mexico's President Criticizes DEA's Fight Against Ruthless Sinaloa Cartel

( – The U.S. government has come under a sharp fire from Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador over an ongoing investigation into the Sinaloa Cartel.

The president claimed that in addition to sending agents into the criminal organization, American officials also eavesdropped on military conversations and their responses to cartels.

During his morning press conference, Lopez Obrador referred to the intrusion as “an abusive intrusion, prepotent, that should not be accepted under any motive,” alleging he had not been informed of any probe.

The Mexican politician stressed that while he has no issue exchanging information, his soldiers should carry out any ” intervention ” rather than American officials.

According to Breitbart Texas, the U.S. Department of Justice revealed several new indictments against the Los Chapitos division of the Sinaloa cartel late last week.

They were charged with being the leading fentanyl traffickers and primarily responsible for the current overdose catastrophe. The cartel boss Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman’s sons are currently in charge of that organization.

U.S. officials stated after that announcement that they had the highest level of infiltration inside the Sinaloa Cartel. According to Mexican writer Peniley Ramirez, the infiltration involved three spies who held important positions within the company.

Lopez Obrador stated that the issue would be brought up in the upcoming round of international negotiations since DEA agents would no longer be free to “come and go” as they had in the past.

According to a report by the Washington Post, American officials allegedly monitored communications in the Mexican Navy and military concerning their fight against drug cartels and a rumored rivalry between the two branches.

The Mexican president remarked, “We can’t accept espionage acts just so they can know what our security institutions are doing. “We will notify them of the requirements for collaboration in due course.”

The same Mexican politician, Lopez Obrador, declared that the drug war was concluded after assuming government.

Ovidio Guzman Lopez, one of El Chapo’s sons, was also ordered to be released by him shortly after being detained in Sinaloa by federal law enforcement.

Following a second detention by Mexican federal police, Ovidio is in a Mexican prison fighting his extradition to the United States.

Should dangerous and violent drug cartels be designated as terrorist organizations by the United States?
