The leader of ... the Zetas, was captured Monday in a city near the Texas border, an emphatic retort from the new government to questions over whether it would go after top organized crime leaders.If you're counting, and I am, this is the 11th Kingpin we've captured in less than three years! Start the chant: War on drugs! War on Drugs! USA! Mexico!
Mr. Treviño is the highest-ranking and most-sought-after drug capo arrested by the government of President Enrique Peña Nieto of Mexico, whose aides had questioned the so-called kingpin strategy of his predecessor, which had emphasized high-profile arrests.
The BBC mentions in passing: "The fear is that it will lead to a period of violent in-fighting between different Zeta factions as they try to assume control of the criminal organisation, our correspondent adds." Ya think?
