South of the border, down Mejico way

Guards and officials at a prison in northern Mexico allegedly let inmates out, lent them guns and sent them off in official vehicles to carry out drug-related killings, including the massacre of 17 people last week, prosecutors said Sunday.

. . . Also Sunday, Mexican federal police announced the arrest of an alleged leading member of a drug gang blamed in recent killings and a car-bombing in the violence-ridden border city of Ciudad Juarez, across from El Paso, Texas.

I will never understand why Washington spends so much time obsessing about security in Iraq and Iran and Afghanistan and Pakistan, and so little time concerned about out of control narco terrorism and political corruption within a one hour drive of our unprotected border.
