U.S. Airforce Plane Caught Smuggling Drugs
February 15. 2011
Argentina and the United States are engaged in a diplomatic spat after Buenos Aires authorities seized what they say are undeclared weapons and drugs on a US military aircraft last week.
The Argentine government on Monday said it planned to lodge a formal protest with Washington, while the US State Department said it was “puzzled and disturbed” by the seizure of what it claimed was routine equipment for training the Argentine federal police.
Officials in Argentina said the US Air Force C-17 transport plane was searched and its cargo seized by customs officials on Thursday at Ezeiza International Airport after arriving with experts and material for a hostage rescue training exercise.

In a statement late Sunday, President Cristina Kirchner’s government said it would lodge a protest with Washington and ask it to cooperate in a probe into the air force’s attempt “to violate Argentine laws by bringing in hidden material in an official shipment.”
Argentina has said it seized “sensitive material” that had not been declared in a manifest submitted by the US embassy.
“Among the material seized, which the State Department makes no reference to, are from weapons to different drugs, including various doses of morphine,” the foreign ministry said in Sunday’s statement.
State Department spokesman Philip Crowley said “we are puzzled and disturbed by the actions of Argentine officials,” adding they conducted what he called “an unusual and unannounced search of the aircraft’s cargo.”
But he said the material seized was routine for exercises in which US military experts train the Argentine federal police in “advanced hostage rescue and crisis management techniques.”
He said the “seized items include batteries, medicine, a rifle and communications equipment,” adding he had no information to “corroborate that rumour” that drugs were seized.
Crowley said he had heard the serial number of one item was not documented, but added that the whole matter could “easily have been resolved on the ground by customs officials” rather than “escalated.”
“We continue to call on the Argentine government to return our equipment,” he said, adding the United States regretted the training exercise was cancelled.
He said Assistant US Secretary of State Arturo Valenzuela at the weekend called Argentine Foreign Minister Hector Timerman and other officials to register “our great concern” about the incident.
The Argentine foreign ministry statement said Valenzuela “refused to explain why they tried to pass this material.”
Argentine officials said Valenzuela had contacted Timerman hopes of resolving the situation, and was said to have expressed “concern on behalf of the US Defence Department over the seizure of items related to the security of the United States.”
The incident comes amid a chill in US-Argentine bilateral relations, and follows US President Barack Obama’s decision to exclude Argentina from his first scheduled trip in March to Latin America. Obama will travel to El Salvador, Brazil and Chile.
Timerman reacted to this decision by saying that the United States has “more interests than friends.”
He said Obama would not visit Argentina because “it won’t buy arms or even sign a defence agreement.”
US Air Force C17 transport caught smuggling arms and drugs into Argentina
February 14, 2011
Translation by Aletho News:
Argentina’s foreign ministry has issued a press release stating that it will be making a formal protest over undeclared weapons and drugs brought into the nation at Ezeiza last Thursday.
A manifest provided by the US did not list war materiel and drugs which were seized by Argentine authorities.
Among the confiscated materiel were communications interception equipment , encrypted communications equipment, sophisticated GPS devices, high power rifles, a machine gun and narcotics as well as a full trunk of expired pharmaceuticals including stimulants. All boxes had the stamp of the 7th Army Airborne Brigade based in North Carolina.
The Argentine government estimates the value of the goods and the C17 transport expenses to exceed $2 million.
The unreported contents also included an odd brochure with the phrase “I am a United States soldier. Please report to my embassy I have been arrested by the country.” translated into fifteen languages.
US documents described the shipment as intended for an Argentine government approved Federal police training course.

Hillary: Too much money to be lost if you legalize drugs

Hillary Clinton: There’s just too much money in drugs to legalize
In an interview on Monday, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton gave a very precise demonstration in how to dramatically misconstrue the fundamentals of drug prohibition. It’s one of those perfectly incoherent explanations that would be almost comedic if it weren’t for the tens of thousands who get murdered in the streets thanks to logic like this.
QUESTION: In Mexico, there are those who propose not keeping going with this battle and legalize drug trafficking and consumption. What is your opinion?
SECRETARY CLINTON: I don’t think that will work. I mean, I hear the same debate. I hear it in my country. It is not likely to work. There is just too much money in it, and I don’t think that – you can legalize small amounts for possession, but those who are making so much money selling, they have to be stopped. They can’t be given an even easier road to take, because they will then find it in their interest to addict even more young people. Mexico didn’t have much of a drug problem before the last 10 years, and you want to keep it that way. So you don’t want to give any excuse to the drug traffickers to be able legally to addict young people.
That’s interesting, because I don’t see the drug cartels taking over the coffee trade, even though it’s more addictive than space-meth and grows vigorously on the hillsides of Colombia. I can’t help but wonder what everyone on the left would say if this preposterous analysis came from Sarah Palin, rather than Hillary Clinton. It’s the sort of profound nonsense that ought to get you skewered by Jon Stewart, yet our Secretary of State will almost certainly get a free pass on misunderstanding literally everything about the escalating violence below our border.
More here if you can handle it.

Mexico Drug Kingpin Admits U.S. Funding
September 1, 2010
A captured Mexican drug kingpin admitted to “investments” in Colombia and said he had received trailers full of dollars from the United States, in a first interrogation video released here.
US-born Edgar Valdez, alias “the Barbie” for his fair complexion, was captured this week, in a major coup for the Mexican government as it struggles to contain raging drug violence.
Valdez, 37, was a key lieutenant of Arturo Beltran-Leyva, who headed the Beltran-Leyva cartel and was Mexico’s third most wanted man until his December 2009 death in a military operation.
Mexican justice officials on Wednesday interrogated “the Barbie” and were set to decide whether he would be sent to the United States, where he has been indicted in several drug trafficking cases.
US and Mexican officials both offered some two million dollars for information leading to his arrest.
The broad-faced drug trafficker wiped sweat off his face as he replied to questions from a female voice in images released by the attorney general’s office late Tuesday.
He said his networks extended to Colombia and he received payments from the United States in dollars hidden in vehicle trailers.

Cops charged with helping drug dealer
July 23, 2010
Two Milwaukee police officers face federal charges related to cocaine delivery and money laundering.
Sgt. Royce Lockett and officer Paul Hill said little during their court appearance late Friday afternoon.
Lockett is accused of aiding a drug dealer who claimed he was trying to transport two kilograms of cocaine. If convicted, Lockett faces a mandatory minimum of five years in federal prison, and up to 40 years.
Hill is accused of helping the same drug dealer conceal the alleged proceeds of drug transactions. Hill’s money-laundering charge carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in federal prison plus a $250,000 fine.
Public defender Chip Burke says both men have served Milwaukee honorably as police officers. He says it’s a sad day for law enforcement.
