NPT Drug War: CNN calls EP ‘this year’s border hot spot’

CNN calls El Paso “this year’s border hot spot”

“No other country in the world has a greater impact on the drug situation in the United States than Mexico does,” said Arabit, who heads the DEA’s office in this year’s border hot spot, El Paso, Texas.

A December 2008 report by the Justice Department’s National Drug Intelligence Center revealed that Mexican drug traffickers can be found in more than 230 U.S. cities.

  1. How ingenious. Close off EP and the cartels will not figure any other way to enter the U.S.

    How in the world did these people get the law enforcement jobs?

    And CNN is still trying to vindicate itself about the sky is falling story about EP being another Bagdad. How pathetic they become as the ratings drop.
