U.S. Special Ops Troops Deployed in Mexico, Leaked Briefing Confirms

A Pentagon document has come to light that confirms the U.S. has put special operations troops on the ground in Mexico as the drug war there continues to escalate, notching some 40,000 murders since late 2006.

The document is a Department of Defense briefing presented in mid-May 2009 in Washington, D.C., to a group of business and political leaders from northwest Florida. The “Unclassified/For Official Use Only” briefing reveals the 18 Latin American nations where 7th Special Forces Group soldiers [Airborne Green Berets] were deployed as of fiscal year 2009, which ended Sept. 30, 2009.

Among those nations, according to the briefing document, was Mexico.
The document also indicates a 7th Special Forces unit was deployed in Mexico in 1996 as well, as part of a “counter-narcotics” mission.

The revelations in the briefing material are important because, to date, neither the Pentagon nor the State Department has confirmed that U.S. special forces have been deployed inside Mexico — a politically volatile subject in that Latin American nation given the rising drug-war death toll there and the “Yankee” history of U.S. Gunboat Diplomacy in the region.

I'd really have to think about the first he told me about that fact; I know it was before he starting posting about it on this Forum..so quite a few years ago. I'm sure the numbers have only gone up and up and up and up....the results speak for themselves ......angryfire

The 'War on Drugs' has only been of profit to those who launched it, and the big drug dealers [some of whom are those who launched it - or their necessary counterparts in the trade]. Everyone else has been on the loosing end...many loosing their lives.
