Reporting on the Mexican Cartel Drug War

Gordo-Gate: DEA Asked Detainees To Pretend Being Relatives of El Chapo, Until The Election Concludes

Tuesday, June 26, 2012 |

Inside the offices of Specialized Investigation of Organized Crime (SIEDO) Personnel of the Drug Enforcement Administration Agency (DEA) offered the brothers Felix and Kevin Beltran,  to accept the role of a relationship with Joaquin El Chapo Guzman  Loera, leader of Sinaloa Cartel, and they would set them free after the elections, according to the lawyer Juan Heriberto Rangel Mendez, defense counselor of the two young men arrested by Marine/Army Secretariat (SEMAR) last Thursday in Zapopan, Jalisco.
The litigant said “the offering happened during Thursday night before the detainees gave their ministerial declaration. DEA approached them when we were not there to defend them.”
“First, they tell Felix to accept being son of El Chapo and that his situation could be resolved  after the elections. They wanted him to sign the statements given by SIEDO. Then he told them that he was not going to sign anything, and fortunately he didn’t.”
Beltran Brothers
“The DEA insisted: ‘Accept this, sign your statement and the we make the clarification that you are not the son’; then after he convinced them that he was not going to do it, they told him ‘we want you to blame the people that we tell you to and you are free right now”, but he didn’t agreed either, so says the attorney.
“Obviously, they couldn’t convinced him of anything, and Felix refers that another DEA agent appeared, a bald one, and asked him to turn around and to take his shirt off and then the agent added: ‘no he’s not it, Gordo, has a scare”.  (Chapo’s son bears a scar)  
How did you know it was a DEA agent?
Because they said that both agents were blonde, tall and they spoke English. Felix said that the words in Spanish were mispronounced and when Felix didn’t agreed they spoke between them in English.
When did the detainees tell you these things?
Midnight, almost at 1:00 o’clock of Saturday, which was the time when I was allowed to meet them. I saw that they were not beaten or abused, and then they told me that the DEA agents were with them and proposed the role playing.
Meanwhile, SIEDO will keep the brothers Kevin and Felix Beltran under arrest during the following 40 hours, although it is confirmed  that Felix is not the son of Joaquin El Chapo Guzman.

PGR will continue with the integration of the preliminary investigation PGR/SIEDO/UEIARV/051/2012, for the probable responsibility in the offenses of organized crime, possession of a fire arm, exclusive of the Army and Air Force, and operations with illicit resources.
The above due to the authorization of arrest given to the PGR by a federal judge, in order for the Federal Public Ministry determine the origin of four fire guns, four grenades, 135 thousand dollars and 295 thousand pesos.
The officials of the Secretariat of Marines that detained the suspects last Thursday in Zapopan, Jalisco, then transferred the men to SIEDO.

That's complete bullshit! I don't believe a word of it! Why would the DEA want these guys to pose as high targets in the CDS (and one being Chapo's son). Especially, when El Gordo is roaming around free! No..the DEA does not operate that way in a foreign country, Mexican authorities were running the show, I do believe that is was the DEA, who pointed it our they had the wrong guy(s). This article is trying to accuse the American govt and the PAN of some sort of political scandal..bullshit!

Lol and people were just talking about the corrupt federal police that got killed in the mexico city air port. I m sure the above piece of pie is going to taste sour to them. Although they should know american federal agencys have always had corruption especially in the 80's with the C.I.A involved in the distribution of crack in the epic crack epidemic. They say that the D.E.A even had deals with the sinaloa cartel a few years back and had regular meetings with top cartel operatives including el mayos son Vicente.

@ 1:31

Well I translated it and had it in draft for two days. Two elements convinced me to post it, it was in Jornada and Riodoce...not in some rag, these are two respected news sources, secondly I had presented the story as it unfolded and though I may not be convinced I felt the need to give all aspects of the story and felt it would be unfair not to present it all....Paz, Chivis

As for the link: http://www.jornada.unam.mx/2012/06/24/politica/019n1pol

Lol the DEA decided to send down 2 tall blondes who spoke terrible Spanish to handle this important assignment? No Spanish speaking agents were available in Mexico? Sounds believable

La Jornada is a leftist publication that is against Calderon's war on the cartels,this story is B.S.

Anonymous said...

I'm a journalist. The US wanted to help the PAN win the election because they are the best friends of the Obama admin in Mexico - they give the US everything it wants in terms of image, trade, buying arms, the privatization of the oil industry; everything. The US govt has been secretly hoping that the PAN would turn shit around in this election. A lot of people thought that Calderon would bring in El Chapo to boost the PAN's electoral hopes (a la Osama Bin Laden) but it hasn't happened because Chapo, as we all know, is too powerful. It looks like the PRI will win the election on Sunday and the US will have to do business with them. No biggie - successive US governments supported the PRI from the early '40s to the 1990s... even when they were doing business with narco.

Hahaha sorry people,but all evidence is.pointing to this.

Gordo got fat eating tacos and ironing all that money. Not a wrinkle on those stacks. Guns straight out the box, poor kid was set up. Of course to many people think that government agents that make deals with dope dealers and live a lie to blend in know when to stop lying.

Right ! Who benefits from a story like this and how? You are just doing the dirty work for the PRI and the Cartels...open your eyes and write productive information. At least see some proof before you let these people use you ( There NEVER will be any because this is about Mexico, you should know how it works here). Gee, and I thought this place had some smarts, and some smart writers who were really smart...need to take more of these articles with a GRAIN of Salt.

Oh yeah you can trust a lawyer to tell you the truth. Especially when she is trying to divert attention from her client's real story AND trying to make a big splash in the media for herself AND when she knows mexicans will believe anything negative about the big, bad US, DEA, FBI, etc. They're terrified of government agencies that actually function.

I have seen DEA agents, and NEVER have I seen one blonde, nor couldn't speak almost Perfect Spanish. Those that work in Mexico that are NOT native speakers of Spanish ALWAYS are accompanied by at least one that does speak fluently. Remember when the agent was killed returning to Monterrey, the one that lived was a native speaker, but the other was NOT blonde,. Blonde men stick out in Mexico and other latin countries, so not a good choice for an undercover agent. Now we have 2 Blondes and DEA, and Poor Spanish speakers in Mexico. But, hey, this is the truth, because it came from these arrested guys, and everyone knows that in Mexico, those arrested are 90% innocent, because that is how many go free. You Really gotta be DUMB to believe the way this was presented.BTW, the very obvious way to tell there were Americans there was to see that they had No guns, and EVERYONE else had LOTS. These are trees...look for the forest.

DEA have already done this multiple times throughout history in Guatemala, El Salvadore, Colombia and Ecuador kidnapping and arresting people then telling them what to say on camera for leniency.

All praise to Bolivia who kicked out the DEA years ago after they were tired of their criminal antics.
