Mexican drug cartels recruit US teenagers, US soldier as hitmen
Surprised to see this on CNN August 11, on Anderson Cooper's show.

Mexican drug cartels are recruiting Mexican-American young people, inclyuding an active-duty soldier, to serve as hired killers. The details are vicious, bloodthirsty, and evil.

From the transcript :

"ED LAVANDERA, CNN CORRESPONDENT : Look at the elaborately tattooed eyes, the cold eyes. The faces of admitted murderers, young Americans killing for Mexican drug cartels.

But it took many murders in Laredo, Texas to track down Gabriel Cardona and Rosalio Reta. One of the first victims was Moises Garcia, gunned down while he helped his pregnant wife and 3-year-old boy into their car.

... Assassins is what they were. How Gabriel Cardona and Rosalio Reta evolved from average, American teenagers into hit men is laid out in court records and these police interrogation videos obtained by CNN.

In this tape, Reta happily details how he carried out his first cartel assassination at the age of 13. "I loved doing it; killing that first person. I loved it. I thought I was superman," said Reta.

... Like many Americans, these teenagers started hitting the cantinas and bars just across the border in Mexico and that's where investigators say the cartel was waiting to recruit them.

These kids were easy targets for the cartel. The two started living the high life. They got tattoos honoring Santa Muerte, the grim-reaper-like "saint" honored by drug traffickers.

... Cardona and Reta should have been in school here but instead investigators say they dropped out and joined the cartel's payroll. They drove around town in a $70,000 Mercedes. They were paid $500 a week as a retainer to sit and wait for the call to kill. Then they could make up to $50,000 for a hit.

... Detective Robert GARCIA: They just told us that they're already here. There are sleeper cells. They're already here in the U.S. not just in Laredo. They're all throughout the U.S.

... Cardona brags about killing 14-year-old Inez Villareal, the innocent cousin of a Cardona enemy who was also murdered. Cardona laughs about torturing both, making "guiso" or stew out of their bodies in large, metal drums. Villareal and his cousin have never been found.

...Ed Lavandera, CNN, Laredo, Texas."

===========================================================

A US soldier stationed at Fort Bliss was arrested for murdering a US informant :

"Pfc. Michael Jackson Apodaca, 18, was one of three men arrested Monday in connection with the shooting death of the mid-level drug cartel member who also worked as an informant for the United States, according to a complaint affidavit.

Police identified the other suspects as Ruben Rodriguez Dorado, 30, and Christopher Andrew Duran, 17.

... Apodaca joined the Army in September 2008, according to a statement from Fort Bliss in El Paso. He is a member of the 11th Air Defense Artillery Brigade at Fort Bliss and performs the duties of a Patriot launcher crew member, the statement said."

My commentary :

While Democrat and Republican politicians talk about the danger posed by al-Qaeda, they seem deliberately blind to the danger the US faces from Mexico. The drug terrorists in Mexico are far more vicious, evil, and anti-human than al-Qaeda. This evil is determined to spread into the US, but if you object to being ruled over by these Satanically evil scum, you are denounced as racist.

Next time you go through the security measures at the airport, designed to thwart al-Qaeda highjackings, think of how Americans are told that we are unjust if we want a little security at the border.


And as for Pfc. Michael Jackson Apodaca, he should be tried for treason, convicted, and hanged.
