'El Chapo' trial: a three-month plunge into the bloody ways of the drug trade

According to the witnesses, the Sinaloa cartel flooded the United States with cocaine with the blessing of countless police, military officers and Mexican officials -- going all the way up to the president -- who turned their heads in exchange for bribes worth millions.

Martinez estimated that from 1990 to 1993 El Chapo thus imported 25 to 30 tons of cocaine into Mexico each year.

Isaias Valdez Rios, described as a hired killer for El Chapo, testified that he saw the drug king torture and execute three rival drug traffickers, burying one of them alive. The two others had bones broken before being killed. Their bodies were then burned.

Snip
El Chapo's accountant, Jesus Zambada, brother to "El Mayo" and the cartel's boss in Mexico City, told the jury how El Chapo purchased Colombian cocaine for $3,000 a kilo and then sold it in New York for $35,000 a kilo -- a markup of more than 10 times the cost.
All the drugs, an average of 80 to 100 tons a year, were sent to the United States, he said.

THE BORDER CRISIS is all about drug money. Who stands to lose the most if the border is secured? The cartels and all the people they buy...in Congress.

Where is the NSA? Or do they "serve" at the behest of the CIA and the FBI?
Those would be rhetorical questions, I guess.

Actually, the NSA is a part of the CIA. The two directors of the NSA answer to their boss, The DCI. They share the same budget, though it's mostly secret. The NSA's budget is actually larger than CIA's.

If you're interested in this stuff, I suggest reading James Bamford's books.

I've read 3, The Puzzle Palace, Body of Secrets and The Shadow Factory. Of the three, The Puzzle Palace is the most famous but, it's a bit out of date now. The Shadow Factory is the most up to date. They are all serious works and documented with academic standards. I think Bamford assumes that with anything after Puzzle Palace, the reader has read his previous stuff. So, I don't know how to advise you. They are all very well written. Let me know if you decide to read one. A good friend is a former NSA employee and now a private contractor to "those" and other agencies, in electronics communications and security. From what I've learned, Bamford is well informed and accurate.
