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.

Just a few points here:
1) Nobody gets mistakenly released in Mexico unless a bribe is paid.
2) I would imagine that the CIA has some contacts and assets within Mexico's immigration apparatus on the border with Guatemala. This hopefully acts as a filter to prevent the release of potentially dangerous special interest aliens detained in southern Mexico. According to one other media source at least one Pakistani undocumented person in transit through Mexico was detained there and ended up in Guantanamo.
3) The geography of this story is troubling. All this potentially dangerous traffic is funneled through Guatamela. Serious pressure must put on Guatemala to better police the entry of "special interest" nationals with false/suspect documents.

Thank you for writing this. Please keep calling out sensationalistic stories when you see them.

It is such a pleasure to read the work of a person with such knowlage and insight! It is another plus to find person which holds the same contempt for Sarah Carter, and nails on the chalkboard articles. Keep up the good work!
