I am a consultant and analyst with eight years of military law enforcement experience, six years of analytical experience covering Latin America, and over seven years of analytical experience covering Mexican TCOs and border violence issues. This blog is designed to inform readers about current border violence issues and provide analysis on those issues, as well as detailed focus on specific border topics. By applying my knowledge and experience through this blog, I hope to separate the wheat from the chaff...that is, dispel rumors propagated by sensationalist media reporting, explain in layman's terms what is going on with Mexican TCOs, and most importantly, WHY violence is happening along the US-Mexico border.


With over a dozen years of combined experience in military law enforcement, force protection analysis, and writing a variety of professional products for the US Air Force, state government in California, and the general public, Ms. Longmire has the expertise to create a superior product for you or your agency to further your understanding of Mexico’s drug war. Longmire Consulting is dedicated to being on the cusp of the latest developments in Mexico in order to bring you the best possible analysis of threats posed by the drug violence south of the border.

"...payoffs reached all the way into the Office of the Mexican Attorney General."

Would that be into the office of, or actually including Eduardo Medina Mora, who just tendered his resignation to President Calderon?

"No reason was given for Eduardo Medina Mora's departure, but the president thanked him for his 'brave work'."

I hope there isn't backlash against the computer experts who accepted the invitation to combat the corruption problems, only to be unceremoniously kicked out of the country (and basically robbed of their hardware/software and stiffed on payment). Who would blame them if they refuse a 2nd request?

K. - Thanks for the comment! I just posted my analysis on the Cabinet changes. Who knows exactly what was going on with Mora? He was described as an "average performer" by a former high-level member of Calderon's government. Although there's no hard evidence he was dirty, it's always tough to know for sure.
