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.

Have your sources mentioned what level of security was present outside the consulate at the time of the attack? I find it amazing that security would not be heavy at U.S. consulates throughout Northern Mexico based on present levels of violence including the recent deadly incident in Cd Juarez and the 2008 grenade attack at the Monterrery consulate.

here are examples of the level of instability in Nuevo Laredo at present.
