Reuters reports that top Mexico trafficker claims he was DEA informant.





MEXICO CITY(Reuters) – A top Mexican drug trafficker awaiting trial in Chicago is claiming that he has immunity from prosecution as he was working all along as a confidential informant for U.S. agents — allegations the U.S. government denies.

Jesus Vicente Zambada-Niebla is the son of Ismael "El Mayo" Zambada, the right-hand man of Mexico’s most wanted criminal, Joaquin "Shorty" Guzman who leads the powerful Sinaloa cartel.

Regarded as a major trafficker in his own right, "El Mayito" or the "Little Mayo," was arrested two years ago in Mexico City. Extradited to the United States last year, he is now in jail awaiting trial in a U.S. federal court in Chicago in February next year.

The younger Zambada, who is charged with cocaine and heroin trafficking, is claiming he was an informant for the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), and WAS GIVEN IMMUNITY FROM PROSECUTION AT THE TOP LEVEL OF GOVERNMENT.

Zambada is charged with
TRAFFICKING COCAINE AND HEROIN, and RUNNING BULK CASH PROFITS [this bulk cash smuggling is the reason the US supports drug trafficking (see video at the end of this entry)] back to the cartel, which the indictment alleges ran one to two tons of cocaine a month through the Chicago area. The indictment also names Zambada’s father, Guzman and others.

One of a slick new generation of Mexican traffickers, dubbed "narco juniors" south of the border, Zambada’s extradition was hailed by the Justice Department as one of the most significant in years.

But court documents filed by his lawyers in late July argue that a deal was struck between the DEA and Sinaloa cartel attorney Humberto Loya in 1998, granting Loya and top cartel chiefs immunity for providing information about their rivals.

Zambada claims
the agreement was "known and approved" by the Justice Department and cartel leaders and is seeking to have all charges tossed arguing he took over from Loya the role of "primary liaison on behalf of the Sinaloa Cartel with the United States government" in 2008.

A snappy dresser far from the brash Mexican cowboy style of his father,
Zambada claims to have met with regional directors of the DEA for Latin America and Mexico at a hotel in downtown Mexico City shortly before his arrest where he received guarantees of his immunity from prosecution.

Zambada "was specifically told that he would receive immunity, not only under Loya’s prior agreement, but as an agreement with him personally and approved at the highest levels of the government," his counsel said.

U.S. government officials in Mexico declined to comment on Zambada’s allegations. U.S. prosecutors have denied that Zambada had "public authority" granting him immunity, and they have until September 9 to file a response with the court.

Allegations that
Mexico’s most powerful cartel cut a deal with U.S. officials, if proven, could be potentially embarrassing for the U.S. government.

Raging drug violence has claimed more than 40,000 lives since Mexican President Felipe Calderon took office nearly five years ago and sent troops to crush the powerful cartels.


The Examiner reports that dead (Gary Webb) journalist further vindicated.


Targeted dead journalist further vindicated: Feds’ tons of drug-traffick
By Deborah Dupre, Human Rights Examiner

Targeted journalist hero, the late Gary Webb was further vindicated Wednesday with news parallelling Fast and Furious and California’s prison snitch or be tortured policy, that 
SEVERAL TONS OF COCAINE WERE BROUGHT INTO THE UNITED STATES BY U.S. FEDERAL AGENTS allowing asset Sinaloa drug cartel to traffic the haul, reportedly in exchange for information about rival cartels, according to court documents filed in a U.S. federal court.

"The latest allegations are part of the defense of Vicente Zambada-Niebla, who was extradited to the United States to face drug-trafficking charges in Chicago," according to El Paso Times.

It took
a Chicago court holding a status hearing today to order the U.S. government to respond to Zambada-Niebla’s motion containing the allegations by Sept. 11.

Jesus Vicente Zambada Niebla, son of Ismael “El Mayo,” is a top leaders of the Sinaloa drug-trafficking organization.

In April, Zambada claimed to have been working with the U.S. government for years according to pleadings filed in federal court in Chicago.

"Zambada Niebla’s allegation of
U.S. GOVERNMENT COMPLICITY IN HIS NARCO-TRAFFICKING ACTIVITIES is laid out in a two-page court pleading filed in late March with the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois in Chicago. The pleading asserts that Zambada Niebla was working with ‘public authority’ “on behalf of the U.S. Department of Justice, Drug Enforcement Administration (‘DEA’); and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (‘FBI’); and the Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (‘ICE’)."

Niebla is also connected to
the Gulfstream II jet that wrecked on September 4, 2007 with four tons of cocaine on board on.

European investigators linked the wrecked plane’s tail number, N987SA, to CIA “rendition” operations. 

Niebla’s claim that
he smuggled drugs from Mexico into the U.S. as an asset for the U.S. government adds further weight to evidence confirming that THE CIA AND U.S. BANKING GIANTS ARE THE TOP PLAYERS IN THE TRANSNATIONAL DRUG TRADE WORTH HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS OF DOLLARS A YEAR.

Targeted Individual: Investigative journalist Gary Webb (1955-2004)

The CIA and U.S. banking drug dealing referenced allegations has been made by, among others, Pulitzer Prize journalist Gary Webb, who supposedly committed suicide in 2004, found with two gunshot wounds to the head. (See:  Stanton, Sam. "Reporter’s suicide confirmed by coroner," The Sacramento Bee; Dec. 15. 2004. Retrieved Jul. 20, 2006)

Webb had revealed that
the CIA was aware of cocaine transactions and large shipments of drugs into the U.S. by Contra personnel. (See Gary Webb in embedded Youtube on page left)

In his 20,000 word, three-part investigative series titled "Dark Alliance," Webb alleged that
Nicaraguan drug traffickers had sold and distributed crack cocaine in Los Angeles during the 1980s, and drug profits were funding the CIA-supported Nicaraguan Contras.

He had charged that
the Reagan administration shielded inner-city drug dealers from prosecution to raise money for the Contras, especially after Congress passed the Boland Amendment that prohibited direct Contra funding.

As a growing number of Targeted Individuals do now, Webb experienced workplace mobbing.
He was blacklisted out of his work as a reporter.

As Targeted Individuals consistently report today,
Webb had complained of both death threats and multi-stalkers: “government people” stalking his home.

Criticized and black-listed from the mainstream journalism community,
Webb’s reportage has been vindicated after many of his U.S. federal agency drug trafficking findings were validated.

These latest revelations of U.S. officials’ systematic drug dealing further vindicates Webb, now honored as a journalist hero, as the video about him reflects.

"INVESTIGATIVE REPORTING IS BEING SQUEAZED OUT OF THE PICTURE, I think INTENTIONALLY," Webb stated on camera.

My reaction: the US government is working together with Mexican drug cartels to bring tons of cocaine into the US.

1) A top Mexican drug trafficker, Jesus Vicente Zambada-Niebla, who is charged with trafficking cocaine and heroin and running bulk cash profits back to the cartel, is claiming he was an informant for the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), and was given immunity from prosecution at the top level of government.

2) Court documents filed by his lawyers in late July argue that a deal was struck between the DEA and Sinaloa cartel attorney Humberto Loya in 1998, granting Loya and top cartel chiefs immunity. The agreement was "known and approved" by the Justice Department.

3) Zambada took over from Loya the role of "primary liaison on behalf of the Sinaloa Cartel with the United States government" in 2008.

4) Zambada met with regional directors of the DEA for Latin America and Mexico at a hotel in downtown Mexico City shortly before his arrest where he received guarantees of his immunity from prosecution. Zambada "was specifically told that he would receive immunity, not only under Loya’s prior agreement, but as an agreement with him personally and approved at the highest levels of the government,"

5) Raging drug violence has claimed more than 40,000 lives in Mexico over the last five years.

6) Further evidence of the US government’s role in drug trafficking comes from the Gulfstream II jet which wrecked on September 4, 2007 with four tons of cocaine on board on and has been linked by European investigators to CIA "rendition" operations through its tail number, N987SA.


Conclusion: The CIA and US banking giants are the top players in the transnational drug trade worth hundreds of billions of dollars a year.

As for the reason why the US government became the largest drug dealer in the world, watch The ESF And Its History (part 5) below.
