Alberto Gonzalez and Medina Mora: “Productive discussions” earlier this year, but is Beto still providing the adult supervision? See also Mexico: Congress Suspects Soft State of Exception.
In Michoacán, for example, according to the report delivered to Medina Mora, Ye Gon had a network dedicated to drug distribution and the receipt of shipments. This cell had the support of state and federal police and even active duty military personnel.
Omisión Cómplice (Proceso, Mexico): The investigative weekly has gotten its hands on more investigation files. These things just sort of trickle out a document at a time, like — well, like pages turning that are the days of our lives [swelling organ music].
The new documents flesh in some more Five Ws with respect to the general facts stated in the DEA indictment about the “man behind the meth” and his Sino-Sonoran brain-cell destruction express.
The political hook here, if true: Current Mexican attorney general Medina Mora — Secretary of Public Security under Fox — had been apprised of Ye Gon’s activities in 2005, Proceso reports, and regularly updated thereafter.
But did diddly about it.
Potentially a companion political focal point to that shot of Fox handing Ye Gon his Mexican green card — which Televisa showed over and over and over and over last week.
Predicted rebuttal, if any: “I read many reports. I cannot be expected to remember them all.” Gonzalez memory syndrome is infectious, in other words. Mark my words.
What makes this a New Market Machines item? A lot of the good information came from Ye Gon’s beancounter. Which just goes to show you: if you want the straight dope, in detail, ask a member of the reality-based community.

En el caso Zhenli, el gobierno de Felipe Calderón intenta presentar como golpe a la delincuencia lo que en realidad supone una cadena de complicidades –u omisiones, por decir lo menos– entre el crimen organizado y altos funcionarios de su administración y la de Vicente Fox. Basadas en reportes oficiales, las investigaciones de Proceso en torno al caso aportan nuevas evidencias de lo anterior. He aquí nombres, cargos, antecedentes …
In the Zhenli Ye Gon case, the government of Felipe Calderón is trying to present as striking a blow against organized crime what in fact presupposes a series of complicities — or omissions, in the best case — of high officials of the Fox administration with organized crime. Based on official reports, Proceso‘s investigations into the case now bring you new evidence. Names, job titles, prior records …
