NPT Drug War: Calderon: “There is some corruption in the United States”

On the BBC, a story titled ‘US graft adds to Mexico’s woes’ :

“There is trafficking in Mexico because there is corruption in Mexico,” Mexican President Felipe Calderon told the BBC.

“But by the same argument if there is trafficking in the United States it is because there is some corruption in the United States… It is impossible to pass tonnes of cocaine to the United States without the complicity of some American authorities.”

  2. This is a much accurate statement than the one he issued earliar and being repeated by Mrs Clinton.

    We SHARE responsibilty for the smuggling but NOT SOLE reason for the drug problem or Mexico’s Nacro-terrorist problem.

  3. I hope Pres. Calderon is sharing his intelligence with US authorities. He should feel free to name names if he has them. Generalties don’t help. This also applies to our Sec of State.

  4. Sr. presidente, there is some corruption in the U.S., just like there is some honesty in Mejico, but exactly where we don’t know. So please show us on a map.
