Feb 17 - Attacks In Mexico

1. Comment: Attacks In Mexico - A video styled "US Agent Killed

in Mexico" by STRATFOR

points out the similarities between the attack on two ICE agents,

and an attack on some missionaries two weeks ago, in that it was

carried out opportunistically by low-level gangsters in Mexico,

and with the intent of acquiring a vehicle. The report

distinguishes this incident from the premeditated, deliberate and

targeted kidnapping and murder of a DEA agent, Kiki Camarena,

back in 1985, which murder became the cause of a wide-ranging and

intense punitive effort by US government agencies to bring the

heads of the cartel responsible to justice.
