COLOMBIA: Arrests Made in Killing of DEA Agent

BorderlandBeat.Com

The Colombian newspaper El Tiempo reported that Watson was a key agent in the arrest and extradition of drug trafficker Hipolito Martínez Felipe González and his network, who operated out of the Gulf of Urabá near Colombia’s northern border with Panama.
Local authorities have said the killing was a express kidnapping.


JUNE 25 - (Washington, D.C.) --
The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration’s statement regarding the arrest of four individuals in connection with the murder of Special Agent Terry Watson in Bogota, Colombia:
“The Drug Enforcement Administration is grateful for the outstanding work of the Colombian National Police, the Special Investigative Unit and the Attorney General’s Office that led to the swift arrest of these suspects,” said DEA Administrator Michele M. Leonhart.
 “We will never forget Special Agent Watson and his sacrifice, as well as all those who have given their lives for the rule of law. We salute the brave and expeditious work of Colombian law enforcement and we look forward to justice being served.”
The body of slain U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration Agent James “Terry” Watson was returned to his Louisiana home following his stabbing last week in Colombia during an aborted robbery attempt. He will be buried tomorrow.

The following was the press release from the DEA at the time of agent Watson’s murder
DEA Announces Tragic Loss of Special Agent in Colombia
JUNE 21 (WASHINGTON)  - The United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) today announced the tragic loss of Special Agent James “Terry” Watson, who was murdered in what appears to have been a robbery attempt last night in Bogota, Colombia.
At the time of his death, Special Agent Watson was assigned to the DEA Cartagena, Colombia office and was on temporary duty in Bogota. Colombian and U.S. authorities are currently investigating.  No further details are available at this time.

“We are all saddened by this devastating loss of a member of the DEA family,” said DEA Administrator Michele M. Leonhart. “Terry was a brave and talented DEA Special Agent who served our agency for 13 years. These are the worst days for anyone in law enforcement and we grieve Terry’s loss.  Our thoughts and prayers are with Terry’s wife and family, and we will forever carry his memory in our hearts.”
In addition to serving in Colombia, Special Agent Watson has served in Honolulu, Hawaii and San Juan, Puerto Rico. He also served on three deployments to Afghanistan conducting dangerous counter-narcotics missions as a member of DEA’s FAST program.  Prior to his DEA service, Special Agent Watson worked for the U.S. Marshals Service and served in the United States Army.

    1. And clearly you know what it means to talk out of your ass! It is because they volunteer for it even though they know it is dangerous, that makes him a hero. But, I realize that is above your level of comprehension. In other words, you are to stupid to understand.

    1. Too late now about the U.S.A. getting involved in the affairs of other countries. I hate to say it, but the U.S. is an empire. The US has a military base in Mante, Ecuador. Has 16000 troops and military equipment in Mariscal Estigarrabia, Paraguay air base. Has something to do with the Bush family buying land above an aquifer the size of Texas/California combined. We have troops in Australia, Africa, Middle East, etc. Just about everywhere in the world. We're here to stay. We are also the armed wing of the financial centers of the world: Wall Street and London.

    1. U obviously aren't in the biz b/c we gringos are everywhere. Panama City, Cartagena, Culiacan, Durango, Cali, etc. gringos" mainly US citizens and islanders from Bahamas, etc are selling guns and consulting to the governments and at the same time working logistics on the other side. It's funny that most people think "cartels" are the main bennificiary when its the US "companies" and "consultants" getting the best deal - money and our freedom. Unlike the foreign mafioso gringos earn from both sides of the equation and walk the streets as safely as we do in the US - except in Caracus nobody is safe - it's worse than Guatamala City.

  9. "Bring 'Peace' to the world" is a laughable statement. Disrupt peace to favor the Empire in power is closer to the objective aimed to achieve by placing pawns near the opponent. There's victims on both sides...

  16. He got robbed. It could be random or not but this has absolutely nothing to do with mexican cartel war

    ReplyDelete
  17. Blame the us government for his death. The agent works for the biggest cartel, the usa. US has been fighting this war forever and it makes its deals with the cartels. As soon as there is not enough drugs on our streets they press the cartels to start sending drugs immediately. I love been an american but thats the way it goes. But hey drugs keeps our economy going and create s jobs for our law enforcement.

  18. What is wrong with u ppl who post comments on here like that? It doesnt matter who it was that got killed whether it be a mexican farmer getting ripped off by these thugs or a dea agent it is all cause of those narco thugs that aint no good for nobody.i do think the u.s need to take care of their own shit FIRST!! But its still senseless and some of us in the u.s do give a damn whats happening to the mexican ppl but dont quite know what we can do at this point.no one deserves do die during a robbery attempt i dont care what country youre in or where youre from

    your grammar shows your ignorance more than the words you say.

    ReplyDelete
  20. The majority of people commenting here are exposing themselves as ignorant, uneducated or plain stupid.

    US did not invade Colombia, Colombia asked for the assistance of the United States. The US cannot go in without the request of any sovereign nation.

    Translation: This agent was assisting Colombia at their request and if you read Colombian papers they are characterizing the agent as a fallen hero, who was instrumental high profile take downs.

  21. Too many people talking mad shit from there keyboards. Read the article and stfu if you dont have anything worthwhile to say. If you dont have the brains to understand this guy was working against drugs that harm people all around the world then youve really missed the point of the war on drugs. Thanks BB for great reporting as always.

  22. "The US cannot go in without the request of any sovereign nation" - yeah, the Pakis are sending invitations and granting permission every time we kick in doors a drop missiles from their airspace. Your kidding yourself or a part of some US propaganda cheerleading club.
