I hate to say I told ya so, but…

11 July 2013

… I told ya’ so:  back in March 2009:

 

Although I was writing about Chapo (who was in the news a lot back then) and what was then the all-consuming “drug war” meme, I did say that the Mexicans should be extremely wary of the Obama Administration:

 

I’ve written several times about my fears that the Obama Administration, suffering from the same blinkered view of Latin America as every U.S. administration over the last several decades two and a half centuries and Obama’s own statements that he wants to “help” Latin America… and the Secretary of State’s long-documented contempt for Latin leaders,was likely to lead to serious problems over the long run.

Admiral Mike Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, is on a tour of Latin America,  “offering” Mexico the same “assistance” the United States gave Colombia (with a president tied to narcotics dealers, a rising narcotics production industry and a military running rough-shod over human rights).

 

It appears the “assistance” was in getting Mexicans as spied on just like Gringos.
