Who are the Mexican drug cartels?

Mexican drug traffickers are blamed for thousands of deaths along the U.S.-Mexico border. But who are these crime syndicates? Recently I spoke with a top DEA official, who broke down the major players.

    The US has a tendency to look at other countries for the drug wars when we've been having one for decades. "Properly prescribed fha approved pharamceuticals are the 4th leading killer in America .. that's North America. Over 200,000 each year and growing.. not to mention all the side affects/additional illnesses that come from these drugs that the medical "professionals" then put them yet on more drugs for these newly discovered diseases.This is by design .. followthe money. Big Pharam is the biggest drug cartel in the world, forcing babies and children to have 5X the number of vaccination than when I was a kid, to the PR scam to force pre-teen to teenage girls to get yet another shot. From the craddle to the grave, they want us medicated .. dumbed down with fluoride in our water and the drug residual they dump into the water supply. Why use lab animals? We are all being turned into lab rats. Why is it that 1 in 2 men will get cancer and 1 in 3 women? One hundred years ago it was 1 in 500 and they were concerned "then". They are convincing school personnel and parents to give young kids speed . .for ADHD. .. follow the money incentives. When I was a kid. . they called that childhood ,.. not a disease. Read Selling Sickness, Vaccination Nation-the documentary. It stunts their growth so a 9 year old boy might only gain 2 pounds in a 15 month period. Is that healthy? Is this what God intended? I get it if you don't believe in GOD. Man iss superior. Man knows best. But if you do believe in God, don't you think HE knows best? By the way,the same drug is sold as a weight loss for adults under a different name. We are so concerned about pot which hasn't killed anyone, yet alcohol is legal, speed for kids is legal. .kills way too many! Yet the holistic homoepathic system of real/preventative healthcare is put down and tried to be eliminated/controlled by the FHA (who works for Big Pharam-not us),all drug companies, AMA and all the other alphabet soup groups. You want to cut the medical costs, use natural methods, eat real food not Monsanto's geneticall modified food (GMO). You discuss Miss America, American Idol, even Britains Got Talent and Somalia's captured pirate..but what about our legallized pirates in THIS country? We're "racing for the cure". .really? Many of those companies that sponsor these charity events actually have cancer causing chemicals in them. Read the book, Exposed and see what Bush did to help keep the toxic chemical industry in business where other countries including the EU, even Mexico has eliminated many of the proven cancer causing toxic chemicals from the same products swe purchase here yet we getthe old toxic formula. We've had people curing cancer in America since at least the 1930s yet unless there's a patent on it (huge billion dollar profits) .. the "race" goes on, the truth is concealed and the PR campaign that follows it. Get educated. What if the drug companies could not advertise on TV. . what would the news programs do for revenue? Would the news stories finally change?

    "not all comments will be posted" means big brother is wataching which means selective free speech eh?

    I don't see many comments at all. I never seen CNN practicing selective free speach. It's like putting on your jacket and tie to go to your favorite resteraunt. Even if you eating your food with your fingers. Maybe they kick you out even... It's Don Lemons' blog he can do what he wants in it.

    Mr. Lemon,

    Please let me know if you would be interested in hearing about Charlie Scott (no relation to Wendell Scott), the first African-American NASCAR driver. He was a member of the Chrysler team.
