Iran Murder Plot, Mexican Drug Cartels and US Intelligence Agencies

Written by: MISNA
The alleged Iranian plot to assassinate the Saudi ambassador to Washington using a member of a Mexican drug cartel, was discovered thanks to a DEA informant who infiltrated the cartel of the Zetas.

A rather bizarre episode (since the alleged Iranian agent, is a more frequent visitor of whiskey bottles than mosques), which could have very dangerous consequences. Several commentators have striven to investigate the Iranian side of the deal, but we we want to highlight some aspects of the Mexican side, in particular the strange connections between US intelligence agencies and Mexican drug cartels.

In the United States the controversy surrounding the operation “Fast and the Furious” (as named from the film) has not yet quelled; it was launched in October 2009 by ATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, a federal agency created the years of Prohibition, which currently operates in the control of traffic in small arms), aimed at identifying the weapon smuggling channels from the U.S. to Mexico.

Mexican authorities, in fact, have long complained that drug cartels are arming themselves in the United States and called on Washington to take action to block this traffic. The ATF has, therefore, facilitated the delivery to Mexico of about 2,000 firearms in order to get to those in charge of this traffic.

The problem is that all traces of these weapons have been lost such that the U.S. federal agency has de-facto collaborated in arming the cartels.

But it gets worse.

Some of these weapons were purchased on behalf of the powerful Sinaloa cartel by undercover informants working for the FBI and the DEA (U.S. Drug Federal agency), using funds donated by the respective agencies to which they belong.

Once again, one of the bosses of the Sinaloa cartel, Zambada Niebla, who is currently facing trial in Chicago (where he was extradited from Mexico), said that some U.S. agencies have reached an agreement with his organization, such that American authorities would close an eye on the cartel’s trafficking in exchange for information on the operations of rival cartels.

In practice, the Sinaloa cartel would have a sort of laissez-passer at the expense of its rivals or competitors. Such claims still need to be verified - however, the U.S. government has appealed to the Classified Information Procedures Act (CIPA), which amounts to hiding behind a state secret.

In this framework, the CIA would surely make its own appearance, (sometimes nicknamed the Cocaine Import Agency for its links with drug trafficking), and because in some cases, DEA and CIA use the same informants (but the latter is the one that prevails in their control) and because an aircraft used by the spy agency in the past for the “extraordinary rendition” crashed in Mexico in late 2007 with a load of 4 tons of cocaine, belonging to the Sinaloa cartel.

The plane had been purchased two weeks before the incident on behalf of Mexican drug traffickers by two people, one of whom had previously worked for various law enforcement agencies and U.S. intelligence.

As for the “Zetas,” the cartel that was presumably hired by the Iranians, even while being a rival of the Sinaloa, has, in turn, strange acquaintances of its own, if only for its origin: a group of deserters from a special unit of the Mexican army trained at at Fort Benning, at the notorious School of the Americas (now renamed Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation).

It therefore seems remarkable that the Al Quds Force, an intelligence and covert operations unit of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, would have sought contacts in an environment penetrated to such an extent by the various US police and intelligence forces.


  1. Jajaja stupid just hurry up and bring the navy to kill the bad guys in mexico and be a new era after .we all know its gonna be really ugly in durango the next couple of days ke juarez ni ke veracruz esto tiene ke parar la peleas entre carteles

    and the local Redneck texas law enforcement bandits to frame an Alcoholic American Citizen
    of Iranian origins is quite laughable.
    Just who is this mystery informant?
    Since when has the bar gone so low as to take as fact the word of an un named individual who maybe does or does not exist, to date this mystery informant is hanging with Elvis
    in D.C.

    LOL, I hope you people don't take such reports serious. I love my country but I hate my government. The U.S. is so quick to talk about a supposed plot in order to help anger the international community CHINA, RUSSIA, European Union, and other NATO countries togive a go ahead on IRAN. Russia and China have vetoed U.S. military action against IRAN 2x. So just no that when the government lies the truth is dangerous. IRAN WOULD NEVER DARE TO ATTACK THE U.S. OR ITS ALLIES. IRAN PRESIDENT KNOWS THAT HE WOULD END UP LIKE Hussein, Ghadaffi, and apparently Bin Laden.

  4. I don't care who's side your on, that bucket of C-4 was impressive! But the cartels loose million dollar hits often enough in checkpoint seizures, and maybe they saw a quick way to get some of it back. Anyone ever think that they were going to take the money and then stiff Iran in the end? What's Iran going to do about it? Sue them? Or send soldiers to Mexico to get their money back? The Z's were armed by the ATF!!

  5. Why is BB still beating this dead horse?
