ICE Agent Almost Gets It

The key to combating [Mexican Drug Cartels], said Alonzo R. Pena, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement deputy assistant secretary for operations said, is to go after their money — money used to corrupt officials and to buy weapons.

William J. Hoover, executive director of the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, said "We have to get to the source of the money."

That's all from the El Paso Times.

Gosh. How can we take the criminal profit out of bootlegging... I mean drug dealing?

It's also worth looking at the comments to the article at PoliceOne to see some of the stupidest police officers who know how to type. "Invade Mexico and smart bomb the terrorists!" "Bring the fight to them." I really find it tough to believe that some people still think that is the answer. No doubt because after 28,000 deaths there we've all been playing this too soft. I guess we just need to go in and take out the Osama Bin Laden of Mexican drug dealing. Problem solved. Man, if only it weren't for liberals who hate freedom, we'd be winning all our wars.

Effing idiots.

I don't remember if I made this comment here before; if so, I apologize.

I get scared every time a president declares "war" on something, because it means the original strategy will never change. We'll just keep doing more and more of the same, on the premise that the original strategy was sound, we're just not doing enough of it.

Now that I think of it, maybe Obama should have declared war on the recession. Then the stimulus might have been big enough.
