A Frenchwoman jailed in Mexico in 2007 for 60 years for kidnapping is to be freed, the Supreme Court has decided.

Florence Cassez had denied the charges and many irregularities have been found in the case, including a staged televised police raid.

Three judges on a panel of five voted to have Ms Cassez released immediately because her rights had been violated.

The case provoked tensions between Mexico and France, where news of her impending release was widely welcomed.

Ms Cassez’s mother, Charlotte, told French television the case had been full of suspense right to the end. “It’s an explosion of joy. I can’t quite believe it,” she said.

In a statement, President Francois Hollande said the decision marked the end of a “particularly painful period”.

“France thanks all those who, in Mexico as well as here at home, have fought so that truth and justice prevail.”

Sharp criticism

Florence Cassez was arrested in 2005 at a ranch near Mexico City where several hostages were found, but denied knowledge of the kidnappings, in which her former boyfriend was involved.

The decision to release her has been sharply criticised by one of the hostages, Ezequiel Elizalde, BBC Mexico correspondent Will Grant says.

Mr Elizalde testified against Ms Cassez and has condemned the Supreme Court’s decision as “disgusting”, describing Mexico’s institutions as “filth”.

This was the second time that the Supreme Court had taken a vote on freeing Ms Cassez.

Last March, however, the judges decided against her release, despite acknowledging serious irregularities in the process.

When first convicted, she was jailed for 96 years, But, in 2009, a court of appeal reduced the term to 60 years.

French authorities tried to extradite her, but the move was blocked by the Mexican government.

Mr Hollande’s predecessor in the Elysee Palace, Nicolas Sarkozy, championed the case and repeatedly clashed with the Mexican government of then-President Felipe Calderon.

Diplomatic tensions reached a peak two years ago when Mexican authorities cancelled a high-profile cultural event in Paris.

December 19, 2012

Walter Samaszko Jr. was a loner whose death went largely unnoticed. That all changed when a crew sent to clean out his house found a fortune stashed away in the garage of his modest ranch-style home.

There were ammunition boxes stuffed with thousands of gold coins, from Austria, Mexico and the United States. There was enough gold to fill up two wheelbarrows — more than $7.4 million worth.

“There was every kind of coin you could think of,” said Alan Glover, the Carson City clerk and the public administrator of the estate who borrowed a neighbor’s wheelbarrow to haul the treasure out.

City officials searched through records to find an heir: a substitute teacher in the San Francisco Bay Area who a judge declared Tuesday was Samaszko’s lone surviving first cousin.

The decision means Arlene Magdanz of San Rafael, Calif., is a millionaire. She didn’t attend the hearing and, so far, has not said anything publicly about her newfound fortune.

Officials were able to track her down using a funeral bulletin at Samaszko’s home that led to his father’s service in Chicago in the early 1960s, and then newspaper clippings that listed survivors.

When a lawyer told her that her 69-year-old cousin’s estate was valued in the millions, officials said, she was surprised, just like everyone else, including his neighbors on their quiet street.

No one seemed to know him at all, even though he had lived in the house since the 1960s. His mother lived with him until her death in 1992. When he died, the house was generally well kept.

“I don’t think I saw him in the year I was out here,” said Curtis Hastings, who dropped mail into a slot in Samaszko’s garage. A woman who lived just two doors down said she didn’t know him.

Samaszko’s body was found in June after neighbors called authorities, though it was not clear what prompted them to do so. He had been dead of heart problems for at least a month, according to the coroner.

Officials don’t know what he did for a living. They also don’t know how he earned the money that was used to buy the gold.

There were meticulous records of the purchases, since at least 1964, leading Glover to suspect that the gold coins may have been mainly bought over the years by Samaszko’s mother.

His bank account stood at $1,200. He had a money market and mutual fund with a combined value of more than $165,000 when it was closed. His three-bedroom, 1,200-square-foot house was sold for $112,000.

“He was not a coin collector,” Glover said. “He was a gold investor.”

While the coins themselves were “nothing spectacular,” Glover said, there were a lot of them — thousands, some wrapped up neatly in foil or plastic cases, others loose in bags.

There were more than 2,900 Austrian coins, many from 1915; 4,500 from Mexico; 500 from Britain; 300 U.S. gold pieces, some dating to 1880; and more than 100 U.S. gold pieces as old as the 1890s. They were stored mostly in 2-foot-by-2-foot-by-2.5-foot ammo boxes stacked on top of each other.

The variety of coins impressed Howard Herz, the appraiser of the fortune for the estate who has seen a lot as curator of gambling collections at Harvey’s Resort at Lake Tahoe from 1960-93.

“It was an extraordinarily well calculated investment in gold,” Herz said.

Besides his house, Samaszko’s other belongings have fetched very little: A bike sold for $2, a saw for $10.70 and a wrench for $15. (A 1968 Ford Mustang California Special will soon be auctioned, appraised at $17,000).

The real money will come when the gold is sold. A lucrative investment in the last few years as the economy remained stuck in a slump, gold is worth about $1,700 an ounce, up from about $400 a decade ago.

Meanwhile, Magdanz has left her apartment to stay in a secret location due to an avalanche of requests from the news media for interviews, Glover said.

“She was so frazzled and so harassed,” he said.

Mexican-American singer Jenni Rivera performs during the 2012 Billboard Latin Music Awards in Coral Gables, Florida, on 26 April 2012.

9 December 2012              19:03 ET

Mexican officials say they have found the wreck of a plane believed to be carrying Mexican-American singer Jenni Rivera and there are no survivors.

Transport Minister Gerardo Ruiz Esparza told Mexican TV that the Learjet was found in Nuevo Leon state.

Two pilots and four other passengers were on the plane.

Ms Rivera, born in California in 1969 to Mexican parents, has sold more than 15 million records of Norteno music.

She is a judge in the popular television programme La Voz (The Voice).

Civil aviation chief Alejandro Argudín told Mexican media that the plane had been “totally destroyed” and the wreckage scattered over a wide area.

“The information we have is this: there is not a single survivor,” he told reporters.

Ms Rivera had performed in the northern city of Monterrey on Saturday and was travelling to the city of Toluca, outside Mexico City, when the plane disappeared, officials said.

A spokesman for Nuevo Leon’s government said the plane had left Monterrey in the early hours of Sunday and aviation authorities lost contact with it about 10 minutes later.

It had been scheduled to arrive in Toluca about an hour later.

December 4, 2012         6:40 am

A suspected drug smuggler who captained the boat that allegedly knocked a U.S. Coast Guardsman into the ocean, resulting in his death, told authorities he was “taking gasoline to some lost friends,” according to federal prosecutors.

The 13-page affidavit in support of charging two Mexican nationals — boat captain Jose Mejia-Leyva and Manuel Beltran-Higuera — in the death of Terrell Horne III details a violent confrontation near Santa Cruz Island on Sunday before the the suspects surrendered.

After telling authorities he was taking gas to friends who he said were north of Los Angeles, Mejia-Leyva asked for an attorney and stopped answering questions, prosecutors said.

But Beltran-Higuera told authorities a man approached him in Mexico and offered to pay him $3,000 if he took gasoline to a panga boat waiting in the U.S., the affidavit said. When he arrived at a panga in Mexico, Beltran-Higuera said he recognized the captain as a man named “Blackey,” whom he later identified as Mejia-Leyva.

Beltran-Higuera said the captain told him they would meet another panga north of Los Angeles and transfer the fuel. He told authorities he didn’t know if the other boat would be carrying drugs or people.

When they arrived at the island where they were supposed to meet, Beltran-Higuera told authorities, the second panga never arrived. Instead, 20 minutes later, a Coast Guard boat and helicopter showed up.

According to the affidavit, Beltran-Higuera said he saw the lights and siren and heard someone yell, “Police! Stop! Put your hands up!” He then heard “a series of gunshots before the Coast Guard vessel collided with the panga,” the affidavit said.

The affidavit said the suspects “throttled the engines and steered the panga boat toward” an inflatable Coast Guard boat. As the suspects headed straight toward the Coast Guard boat, authorities tried to steer out of the way and fired several shots at the panga.

But the panga rammed into the front of the inflatable, throwing Horne and a second crew member into the ocean.

“As a result of the panga boat crew’s actions, Officer Horne was struck by a propeller in the head and sustained a traumatic head injury,” the affidavit said. He was later pronounced dead by paramedics.

Crew member Brandon Langdon suffered a cut to his knee.

The Coast Guard aircraft followed the panga boat from above, along with a helicopter. A second Coast Guard response boat intercepted the panga just after 5 a.m., about 20 miles north of the U.S.-Mexico border.

As the second Coast Guard boat pulled up next to the panga, authorities ordered the suspects off the panga at gunpoint. Again the suspects attempted to flee, according to the affidavit. Three times, authorities attempted to stop the suspects at gunpoint — each time, the driver of the boat revved the engines and tried to speed away.

Finally, the boat broke down, authorities said. When the suspects refused to surrender, Coast Guard crew members deployed pepper spray on both men. They were arrested after what federal authorities described as a brief struggle between the panga captain and Coast Guard members.

The affidavit said the boat was the second boat intercepted by the Coast Guard cutter Halibut that night. The first was spotted about 11:30 p.m. Saturday — authorities said its lights were off and it was not moving.

Crew members of the halibut boarded the boat and arrested two people, according to the affidavit. Authorities believe that boat may have been serving as a fuel supplier for drug smuggling or human trafficking.

The second boat, with Mejia-Leyva and Beltran-Higuera, was spotted soon after.

21:58 EST                1 December 2012

Mario Lopez has married longtime girlfriend Courtney Mazza in a star-studded ceremony in Mexico.

The couple exchanged vows at the seaside Punta Mita estate of Girls Gone Wild founder Joe Francis, with Eva Longoria among guests.

Lopez, who shares a two-year-old daughter with the Broadway dancer, proposed over New Year’s weekend last year.

The X Factor U.S. and Extra host saw his bride walk down the aisle just before sunset. Extra was the first to report the nuptials.

The couple met in 2008 when the former Saved By the Bell actor was starring in A Chorus Line on Broadway.

They share a daughter, Gia, who Lopez said in June would be the flower girl at the ceremony, along with his three neices.

A mariachi band played during the festivities, which will air in a two-hour television special later this month called Mario & Courtney’s Wedding Fiesta.

Lopez has been outspoken about his Hispanic heritage and his desire to raise his daughter with full knowledge of her cultural background.

The television star, 39, popped the question over New Year’s weekend last year in Ixtapa, Mexico.

‘We took a walk alone as the sun was setting,’ he told UsWeekly after the proposal.

‘I told Courtney that I wanted the mother of my children to have their last name. She was silent at first from shock, then she leaped for joy and did a little jete!’

She added: ‘Besides our daughter’s birth, this was the best moment of my life!’

It is the first marriage for Mazza, and Lopez’ second.

He was previously married to Ali Landry in 2004 in Mexico but their marriage was annulled two weeks later due to his infidelities.

Mario admitted that he cheated at his bachelor party days before their wedding.

‘At that point I was not ready to settle down,’ he told Us. ‘I wasn’t man enough to know how to go about handling it.’

He explained that days after their wedding a horrified Landry confronted him after being shown a photo of him in a compromising position with a woman at the party.

Lopez’ nuptials with Mazza are slated to air on TLC network on December 8

November 30, 2012                5:58 p.m.

When Enrique Peña Nieto assumes the Mexican presidency on Saturday, returning to power a once-autocratic party that ruled for seven decades, he will immediately confront a sluggish economy and a bloody war against drug gangs.

How he will handle those two problems is the biggest question surrounding the incoming government.

Peña Nieto, 46, and his Institutional Revolutionary Party want to shift the focus away from the battle against drug cartels that consumed and ultimately haunted outgoing President Felipe Calderon.

But Peña Nieto is inheriting a bruised, terrified and polarized nation that has lived through its most violent period since its revolution a century ago. Tens of thousands of people — mayors, police, journalists, lawyers, officials, businessmen as well as criminals — have been killed. Thousands are missing, and human rights abuses by authorities have skyrocketed in the six-year campaign against the drug gangs.

Despite the elimination of several top drug lords, the flow of narcotics has not slowed. The gangs have only extended their influence from the border with the U.S. deep into southern Mexico and beyond.

Calderon, meanwhile, will take on a teaching position at Harvard University, swiftly leaving the country he ruled since 2006. Presidents are limited to one term in Mexico, and Calderon’s National Action Party came in a poor third in last summer’s election.

The PRI finished first, but with only about 38% of the vote, limiting the mandate that Peña Nieto will enjoy and complicating his ability to push through ambitious reforms he promised. He will have to struggle to balance competing forces within his party: the so-called dinosaurs who evoke old-school, heavy-handed politics versus the U.S.- or Europe-educated modernizing younger members. His Cabinet, announced Friday, contains both.

“The most serious problem for Peña Nieto is his desire to draw a line between those traditional PRI practices … and the image of modernity that is incompatible with the old way of doing politics,” commentator Ezra Shabot said in an El Universal news column this month.

Instead of the drug war, Peña Nieto would like to talk about the economy, foreign investment and jobs. But security issues will be unavoidable from Day 1.

The new president has pledged, rather vaguely, to “reduce violence” and cut the homicide rate as a way to return to besieged Mexicans a sense of safety and tranquillity. Critics fear that means pulling punches when it comes to persecution of drug gangs.

In the past, the PRI was known to enter into pactos, or deals, with cartel leaders to keep the peace and share the profits.

Peña Nieto has angrily denied that he plans to cut deals with drug gangs, something that would be more complicated today because of their fragmented nature and the acute viciousness of one of the newer and now-dominant groups, the Zetas.

He has said he will keep the army deployed throughout the country, as Calderon did, at least initially. In addition, he will demote the U.S.-backed federal police while building up a national gendarmerie that in theory would eventually replace the military in the drug offensive.

Despite the PRI’s long nationalistic streak, Peña Nieto says he intends to maintain and would like to expand Mexico’s close cooperation with the United States in security matters. Currently, the U.S. supplies intelligence data to Mexican authorities for the tracking of traffickers and is training thousands of police officers, judges, prosecutors and others as part of a $2-billion aid program.

He has already hired Gen. Oscar Naranjo, retired head of the Colombian national police, as a special security advisor. Naranjo is beloved by the Americans and is expected to bring on board U.S.-promoted tactics from the Colombian conflict, including the increased use of small, vetted police or military units for raids.

Calderon’s strategy was faulted for concentrating on military force and underestimating cartel strength while failing to go after the money, much of it laundered through Mexican businesses and banks.

Peña Nieto is promising a new, reformed PRI, one that will not revert to its old habits of election-rigging, paying off supporters, co-opting the opposition and occasionally beating them up.

The Mexico of today is very different from that of nearly two decades ago, when the last PRI president was elected. Some, but certainly not all, of its institutions are stronger, such as the Supreme Court and the news media, and can provide a counterbalance to the presidency.

Yet six years of bloodshed have left a dispirited society that may be willing to give ground to organized-crime kingpins if it at least means being left alone.

Polling data released this week show roughly equivalent portions of Mexicans saying the drug war was Calderon’s most important achievement and his biggest failure. And about two-thirds of those surveyed said they believed the cartels were winning the war.

Serious systemic problems, like impunity and corruption — perfected under the long PRI reign — will continue to hinder any progress Peña Nieto hopes to make.

On the economy, Peña Nieto has stressed his plan to open up the state-run oil giant Pemex to private and foreign investment, long a taboo here. To do so means challenging the Pemex unions that have long allied themselves with the PRI.

Already, another key reform, on labor workplace rules, passed the Legislature only after the PRI gutted measures that would have forced powerful unions to be more accountable and transparent.

November 27, 2012              7:36AM

A 22-YEAR-OLD Mexican beauty queen has been killed in a gunfight between soldiers and a suspected gang in the northwestern state of Sinaloa, prosecutors say.

The body of Maria Susana Flores, who was Miss Sinaloa 2012, was found in the car used by the armed group that exchanged fire with soldiers on Saturday, said an official from the state prosecutor’s office.

The skirmish left a total of five civilians and one soldier dead in the town of Mocorito.

“She was one of the people who died in the clash,” the official said.

Mexican media say the brunette, who participated in the Miss Oriental Tourism pageant in China in May, was travelling with her boyfriend, a suspected hitman, when the shootout erupted. The boyfriend also died.

The armed group is linked to Orso Ivan Gastelum, the suspected leader of a group of hitmen working for the powerful Sinaloa drug cartel.

Families and friends held a funeral in the state capital of Culiacan on Sunday, covering Flores in a veil amid a heavy military presence.

On its Facebook page, the Miss Sinaloa pageant organisers, Nuestra Belleza Sinaloa, voiced its “deepest condolences” for the death of Flores, who was a “charming and happy young woman with a great future”.

7 November 2012                  14:27 ET

A 7.4-magnitude earthquake has struck off Guatemala’s Pacific coast, reportedly killing at least eight.

Guatemalan President Otto Perez Molina declared a national alert and advised people in affected areas to evacuate tall buildings as a precaution.

Officials said roads had been buried in landslides, and it would take 24 hours to fully restore links to the region.

Frightened people fled from offices and homes around the region, as buildings shook from Mexico City to San Salvador.

Quake officials said the tremor hit at about 10:35 local time (1635 GMT) about 23km (15 miles) from the coastal town of Champerico.

Guatemala map

Firefighters said a school had collapsed in San Marcos region, near the border with Mexico.

The firefighters later said at least eight people had been killed, though it was not clear if the deaths were related to the school collapse.

Secretary Vanessa Castillo, who was moved from her Guatemala City office, told Reuters news agency: “It was really big, I felt quite nauseous.”

The US Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said in a statement there was no threat of a destructive widespread tsunami.

But it added: “Earthquakes of this size sometimes generate local tsunamis that can be destructive along coasts located within a hundred kilometres of the earthquake epicentre.”

The region is often hit by quakes, which have periodically caused huge damage and many deaths.

File picture of Heriberto Lazcano

9 October 2012               01:20 ET

Top Los Zetas drug cartel leader Heriberto Lazcano has apparently been killed in a shootout in northern Mexico, the country’s navy says.

The navy said it was still awaiting final forensic results, but that the body appeared to be “El Lazca”.

Lazcano, alias “The Executioner”, is a founder of the notorious cartel which has been implicated in a string of mass killings and kidnappings.

His death would be a victory in the fight against cartels, say analysts.

Forensics examination

Two alleged gang members were killed in a gun battle with the navy on Sunday in Coahuila state, and there was “strong evidence” one of the bodies was Lazcano, the navy added.

“Information was obtained after the first forensics tests were carried out that yielded indications that suggest that one of the bodies is Heriberto Lazcano,” the Associated Press quoted the navy’s statement as saying.

“The Navy Department is co-ordinating efforts with Coahuila state, and will be awaiting the conclusions of the forensics examination in the case,” the statement said.

On Monday the Navy said it had arrested suspected regional Zetas leader, Salvador Alfonso Martinez, who the navy says was behind the 2010 murder of 72 migrants in northern Tamaulipas state.

Police also recently arrested Ivan Velazquez Caballero, known as El Taliban, a top Zetas commander.

Infamous for mass killings and use of extreme violence, the Zetas control whole swathes of north-eastern Mexico.

Police believe a recent surge in mass killings was due to a split within the cartel.

Lazcano is thought to be the leader of one faction, while the other is led by Miguel Angel Trevino.

A man was recently killed by way of falling onto a fence and impaling himself after he touched a live wire while at work on a construction site. Disturbing, right? Well, get this: That man, Cesar Osuna, also happened to be wanted for beating a 2-year-old boy to death. Even more disturbing.

A toddler by the name of Juan Felix died in January of 2011 after being taken to the hospital. An autopsy performed showed that Juan Felix passed away from blunt force trauma. According to police reports, this poor, poor child, who should have never been subject to this unimaginable horrific abuse, suffered from multiple rib fractures, tearing of abdominal membranes, and a skull fracture.

Here’s what happened: After Juan died, Osuna fled to Mexico from California, and apparently started working in construction. Police who were after him were able to identify him through various tattoos on his body. Meanwhile, Juan’s mother, Noemi Mendoza, is in the midst of serving a six-year sentence after pleading no contest to willful cruelty to a child. (Mendoza was accused of leaving her child in the custody of someone considered dangerous. Apparently, there were indications that this completely innocent little boy had been abused on other occasions. Disgusting.)

17 July 2012              14:25 ET

HSBC provided a conduit for “drug kingpins and rogue nations”, according to a US Senate committee investigating money laundering claims at the bank.

Its report said suspicious funds from countries including Mexico, Iran and Syria had passed through the bank.

The president and chief executive of HSBC Bank USA, Irene Dorner, apologised to the committee for the behaviour which she said deeply regretted.

Earlier, HSBC’s head of compliance, David Bagley, resigned at the hearing.

Ms Dorner apologised “for the fact that HSBC did not live up to the expectations of our regulators, our customers, our employees, and the general public”.

She said she had worked hard to change the culture at the bank.

The bank also said it was in the process of closing 20,000 accounts in the Cayman Islands as a result of the investigation.

Dangerous environment

Senator Carl Levin said HSBC’s lack of controls at its US and overseas units had been “a recipe for trouble”.

Mr Levin is chairman of the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, which looked into HSBC’s activities.

Mr Levin said an audit had found that: “From 2001 to 2007, HSBC affiliates sent almost 25,000 transactions involving Iran worth over $19bn dollars through HBUS and other US accounts, while concealing any link with Iran in 85% of the transactions.”

HSBC senior executives in London knew what was going on, he said, but allowed the “deceptive conduct” to continue. Key HBUS officials were also informed early on, he said.

Analysis

When it comes to HSBC’s flawed operation in Mexico, where it bought a bank in 2002, the company’s defence seems to be that it didn’t know what it was getting into. Paul Thurston, who arrived there in 2007, said some of the things he discovered “took my breath away”.

Sounding naive may work at a human level, but for an organisation that markets itself as “the world’s local bank”, it’s fairly, well, breathtaking.

Faced with the report’s catalogue of errors – failure to heed warnings that vast dollar transfers from Mexico to the US almost certainly involved drug money, or the fact that 41% of the bank’s accounts in the Cayman Islands had no customer information attached – it was hardly surprising that HSBC’s head of compliance, David Bagley, announced meekly that he was moving on.

The spotlight here was on HSBC, but this is a test case. The two Senators make it clear that other big banks need to take note.

US government rules prohibit financial transactions with Iran and certain other countries, the committee said the bank’s actions in getting round these had in some cases assisted terrorism.

According to the Senate committee, HSBC accepted more than $15bn in cash from subsidiaries in Mexico, Russia and other countries at high risk of money laundering but failed to conduct any monitoring of these bulk cash transactions between mid-2006 and mid-2009.

The also report found that HSBC knew of lax anti-money laundering practices at its Mexican subsidiary HBMX, which had dated back to its purchase in 2002.

HBMX was warned, on at least two occasions, by Mexican authorities that drug money was probably being laundered through HBMX accounts.

The hearing comes at a time when the standing of banks is already at rock bottom, says BBC New York business correspondent, Michelle Fleury.

She says: “The scandal over the manipulation of the Libor inter-bank lending rate hasn’t exactly inspired confidence and has also been under scrutiny in Congress on the same day. The idea though that one of the world’s biggest banks would be facilitating violent crime threatens to cast an even darker shadow over banks and bankers.”

‘Painful and embarrassing’

One HSBC executive, Paul Thurston, who was head of retail banking and wealth management, said the bank had taken wrongdoing seriously, and had taken action on many occasions, including dismissing staff.

“Now is the appropriate time for someone new to head group compliance.”

He told the hearing of the difficulties of working in Mexico, which, he said, was a dangerous environment where kidnapping of bank staff was widespread and employees came under pressure from criminals who would attempt to corrupt them.

Mr Thurston referred to substandard record-keeping and the difficulty of knowing who the bank’s clients were. He said: “Some of the things I found frankly took my breath away.”

Before the hearing began, HSBC said in a statement, that it expected to be held accountable for what went wrong.

“We will apologise, acknowledge these mistakes, answer for our actions and give our absolute commitment to fixing what went wrong,” HSBC said.

Senator Levin spoke of a “polluted” system that allowed black-market funds to move through the US banking system.

“In an age of international terrorism, drug violence in our streets and on our borders, and organised crime, stopping illicit money flows that support those atrocities is a national security imperative,” said Mr Levin.

The report also concludes that the US bank regulator, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, failed to properly monitor HSBC.

Many of HSBC’s breaches of US anti-money laundering relate to its use of bearer share accounts. Under the rules for these accounts, ownership of shares and the income they incur can be passed from person to person in secrecy.

HSBC’s US subsidiary HBUS had opened more than 2,550 accounts for bearer share corporations.

These businesses are commonly set up in tax havens such as the British Virgin Islands.

July 14, 2012               4:29 pm

A fugitive on the U.S. Marshals Service’s most-wanted list was captured in Cancun after nearly 24 years on the run.

Vincent Legrend Walters, 45, was wanted for the 1988 kidnapping and murder of a woman named Christina Reyes in San Diego. The killing allegedly stemmed from a drug deal gone bad.

According to the U.S. Marshals, Walters had been caught up in an undercover Drug Enforcement Agency operation in 1988, involving a $200,000 methamphetamine deal.

One of Walters’ business associates became paranoid and handed the drugs off to a local dealer. Walters tracked the dealer down, seeking to get the drugs back, but the man had already passed the meth on to a friend named Jay Bareno.

Walters allegedly then kidnapped the drug dealer along with a friend and Reyes, the friend’s girlfriend, and demanded that Bareno give the drugs back in exchange for their release. Reyes died while she was held hostage, after she was gagged with a chemically saturated rag, authorities said.

The other two hostages were released in exchange for the drugs.

Walters’ brother, who took part in the scheme, was captured soon after and convicted of kidnapping and murder, but Walters fled, authorities said.

Authorities finally tracked him down in the Mexican resort town of Cancun, where he was living under the name Oscar Rivera and working at the Cancun International Airport. The Associated Press reported that an airport official said Walters worked in a booth at the terminal for a resort selling time-share packages.

The U.S. Marshals said Walters had “boasted to people that he was a fugitive from San Diego and wanted by the U.S. Marshals Service.”

Mexican authorities worked with the U.S. Marshals Service to locate and arrest Walters, who was taken into custody Friday morning.

He will be transported to Mexico City to face extradition to San Diego, where he will face murder and drug charges. A federal grand jury indicted Walters in 1989 on charges of conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine, carrying firearms during drug trafficking and possession of unregistered firearms and explosives.

July 3, 2012        9:48 p.m.

In Mexico, the media called her la bonita (“the pretty one”) or la chula ( “the beautiful one”) or la reina del crimen (“the queen of Mexican crime”).

Mexican authorities have long alleged that Anel Violeta Noriega Rios, 27, was a top operative in the La Familia drug cartel working out of the United States. They said that she helped smuggle drugs from Mexico into the United States, once using a gardening company to move drugs brought by sea into Long Beach.

But when authorities arrested Noriega Rios at a modest El Monte apartment last week on immigration charges, there were no indications the woman had a 5-million peso reward on her head.

“It is the last place you’d expect to find someone who was supposed to have run so many drugs,” a source familiar with the investigation told The Times.

When announcing Noriega Rios’ arrest Tuesday, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcementcalled her a “main U.S.-based operative” in the La Familia cartel, a group often characterized as ruthless and cult-like, known for moving mostly methamphetamine — but cocaine and marijuana as well — into the U.S. from the Mexican state of Michoacan.

Authorities began watching Noriega Rios in El Monte upon the request of Mexican officials, who received a tip that she was living in the working-class San Gabriel Valley city. After authorities were able to determine that the woman was in fact Noriega Rios, they arrested her without incident.

They confirmed her identity later using fingerprints, sources said.

ICE officials said Noriega Rios was arrested in the United States and deported to Mexico five times between 2004 and 2005 but has no criminal convictions in the U.S.

She was handed over to Mexican authorities in San Ysidro on Friday.

Mexican authorities have arrested several top-level La Familia leaders in recent years, moves not only described by some officials as significant blows to the cartel, but ones that led to struggles within the organization. Sources told The Times that about two dozen cartel operatives have been captured in the U.S. by various federal agencies in the last two years. The sources spoke on the condition of anonymity because the case was ongoing.

Noriega Rios was frequently mentioned in Mexican press reports. She was purportedly a contact between the Michoacan cartel and the powerful Sinaloa cartel and its leaders, including top cartel boss Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, a man whom the U.S. Treasury Departmenthas declared the world’s most powerful drug trafficker.

Law enforcement sources said they were puzzled to find such a wanted woman seemingly hiding in plain sight in El Monte.

“It is not clear if she was just hiding or just had fallen on hard times,” one source said.

Each letter of the first name rules 9 years of life.  The first 27 years of life are ruled by the sum of the first three letters of the name.

Anel Violeta Noriega Rios

1 (A is the 1st letter of the alphabet) + 14 (n is the 14th letter of the alphabet) + 5 (e is the 5th letter of the alphabet) = 20

So the number 20 rules her first twenty-seven years of her life.

2 July 2012                  05:50 ET

Mexico’s old ruling party, the PRI, is set to return to power as early official results indicate its candidate Enrique Pena Nieto has won the presidential election.

Mr Pena Nieto, 45, is on about 37%, several points ahead of Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who has not conceded.

Thousands of police were on duty for the vote, amid fears of intimidation from drug gangs.

Mexicans were also electing a new congress and some state governors.

‘New face’

Analysis

After what was, by and large, an orderly and peaceful vote, the partial result from the country’s electoral authorities appears to confirm that it was Mr Pena Nieto’s night.

As soon as the traditional speech from incumbent President Felipe Calderon was over – in which he called Mr Pena Nieto the president-elect – the candidate addressed the crowds of his jubilant supporters.

He spoke of reconciliation, of governing for all Mexicans and said that “Mexico had won” no less than three times.

But with his nearest challenger, Mr Lopez Obrador, waiting for all the results before accepting defeat, Mr Pena Nieto will have a tough time winning over his critics.

Celebrations at the headquarters of the PRI (Institutional Revolutionary Party) started after the polls closed.

Mr Pena Nieto declared: “We all won in this election. Mexico won.”

“This is just the start of the work we have before us.”

He thanked Mexican voters for giving the PRI a second chance, saying his administration would have a “new way of governing”.

The election campaign was dominated by the economy and the war on drugs.

“There will be no pact nor truce with organised crime,” Mr Pena Nieto said.

He had been presented as the new face of the PRI, a break with the party’s long and at times murky past that included links with drug gangs.

The party held on to power for 71 years until it was defeated in 2000.

Mr Pena Nieto built his reputation on the “pledges” he set out for his governorship in Mexico state, focusing on public works and improvement of infrastructure.

Outgoing President Felipe Calderon has congratulated Mr Pena Nieto and promised to work with him during the transition to his inauguration in December.

“I sincerely hope for the smooth running of the next government for the benefit of all Mexicans,” Mr Calderon said, in a televised address.

Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, running for the leftist Party of the Democratic Revolution (PRD) is in second place with about 33% of the vote.

The official quick count, published by the electoral authorities (IFE), is based on returns from a sample of around 7,500 polling stations across Mexico.

Mr Lopez Obrador, who was the runner-up in the 2006 election, has not conceded victory.

“The last word hasn’t been spoken yet,” he said.

“We simply do not have all the facts. We are lacking the legality of the electoral process.”

In 2006, he refused to recognise Mr Calderon’s victory and led street protests for months afterwards.

1929: Dominates Mexican politics from its foundation as National Revolutionary Party (PNR) by revolutionary leader Plutarco Elias Calles

Mexico’s PRI

  • 1934: Nationalises oil industry
  • 1946: Party takes name of Partido Revolucionario Institucional (Institutional Revolutionary Party)
  • 1988: Leftist coalition defeated by PRI’s Carlos Salinas in a vote widely seen as rigged
  • 1989: PRI’s first state election defeat
  • March 1994: PRI presidential candidate Luis Donaldo Colosio murdered; replacement Ernesto Zedillo wins election
  • Sept 1994: Outgoing president’s brother Raul Salinas accused of organising murder of PRI secretary general. Jailed but conviction later quashed
  • 1997: PRI loses majority of Congress
  • 2000: PRI loses presidency to Vicente Fox

Josefina Vazquez Mota, the candidate of the governing National Action Party (PAN) had already accepted defeat.

The initial results from IFE put her on some 25%.

Security display

Almost 80 million people were eligible to cast their ballots on Sunday.

Police and army were deployed to protect voters from intimidation by drug cartels at polling booths.

Officials said the voting was largely peaceful, but reported some initial problems as a number of stations opened later than planned.

“Everything has been very good,” one voter in Mexico City told the BBC. “But people aren’t very motivated to vote, perhaps because the candidates make so many promises but we’re always worse off.”

With nearly half the Mexican population living in poverty, the economy was one of the main issues in the campaign.

Unemployment remains low at roughly 4.5%, but a huge divide remains between the rich and the poor.

Another issue dominating the campaign was the war on drugs, launched nearly six years ago by President Calderon, who is constitutionally barred from seeking re-election.

The main opposition candidates have been critical of Mr Calderon’s policies.

They point out that more than 55,000 people have been killed in drug-related violence since 2006.

Mexicans were also electing 500 deputies, 128 senators, six state governors, the head of government in the Federal District (which includes Mexico City) and local governments.

June 27, 2012               5:00 AM ET

In the annals of impossible assignments, Dave Voth’s ranked high. In 2009 the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives promoted Voth to lead Phoenix Group VII, one of seven new ATF groups along the Southwest border tasked with stopping guns from being trafficked into Mexico’s vicious drug war.

Some call it the “parade of ants”; others the “river of iron.” The Mexican government has estimated that 2,000 weapons are smuggled daily from the U.S. into Mexico. The ATF is hobbled in its effort to stop this flow. No federal statute outlaws firearms trafficking, so agents must build cases using a patchwork of often toothless laws. For six years, due to Beltway politics, the bureau has gone without permanent leadership, neutered in its fight for funding and authority. The National Rifle Association has so successfully opposed a comprehensive electronic database of gun sales that the ATF’s congressional appropriation explicitly prohibits establishing one.

Voth, 39, was a good choice for a Sisyphean task. Strapping and sandy-haired, the former Marine is cool-headed and punctilious to a fault. In 2009 the ATF named him outstanding law-enforcement employee of the year for dismantling two violent street gangs in Minneapolis. He was the “hardest working federal agent I’ve come across,” says John Biederman, a sergeant with the Minneapolis Police Department. But as Voth left to become the group supervisor of Phoenix Group VII, a friend warned him: “You’re destined to fail.”

Voth’s mandate was to stop gun traffickers in Arizona, the state ranked by the gun-control advocacy group Legal Community Against Violence as having the nation’s “weakest gun violence prevention laws.” Just 200 miles from Mexico, which prohibits gun sales, the Phoenix area is home to 853 federally licensed firearms dealers. Billboards advertise volume discounts for multiple purchases.

Customers can legally buy as many weapons as they want in Arizona as long as they’re 18 or older and pass a criminal background check. There are no waiting periods and no need for permits, and buyers are allowed to resell the guns. “In Arizona,” says Voth, “someone buying three guns is like someone buying a sandwich.”

By 2009 the Sinaloa drug cartel had made Phoenix its gun supermarket and recruited young Americans as its designated shoppers or straw purchasers. Voth and his agents began investigating a group of buyers, some not even old enough to buy beer, whose members were plunking down as much as $20,000 in cash to purchase up to 20 semiautomatics at a time, and then delivering the weapons to others.

The agents faced numerous obstacles in what they dubbed the Fast and Furious case. (They named it after the street-racing movie because the suspects drag raced cars together.) Their greatest difficulty by far, however, was convincing prosecutors that they had sufficient grounds to seize guns and arrest straw purchasers. By June 2010 the agents had sent the U.S. Attorney’s office a list of 31 suspects they wanted to arrest, with 46 pages outlining their illegal acts. But for the next seven months prosecutors did not indict a single suspect.

On Dec. 14, 2010, a tragic event rewrote the narrative of the investigation. In a remote stretch of Peck Canyon, Ariz., Mexican bandits attacked an elite U.S. Border Patrol unit and killed an agent named Brian Terry. The attackers fled, leaving behind two semiautomatic rifles. A trace of the guns’ serial numbers revealed that the weapons had been purchased 11 months earlier at a Phoenix-area gun store by a Fast and Furious suspect.

Ten weeks later, an ATF agent named John Dodson, whom Voth had supervised, made startling allegations on the CBS Evening News. He charged that his supervisors had intentionally allowed American firearms to be trafficked—a tactic known as “walking guns”—to Mexican drug cartels. Dodson claimed that supervisors repeatedly ordered him not to seize weapons because they wanted to track the guns into the hands of criminal ringleaders. The program showed internal e-mails from Voth, which purportedly revealed agents locked in a dispute over the deadly strategy. The guns permitted to flow to criminals, the program charged, played a role in Terry’s death.

After the CBS broadcast, Fast and Furious erupted as a major scandal for the Obama administration. The story has become a fixture on Fox News and the subject of numerous reports in media outlets from CNN to the New York Times. The furor has prompted repeated congressional hearings—with U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder testifying multiple times—dueling reports from congressional committees, and an ongoing investigation by the Justice Department’s inspector general. It has led to the resignations of the acting ATF chief, the U.S. Attorney in Arizona, and his chief criminal prosecutor.

darrell_issa

Rep. Darrell Issa (R.-Calif.)

Conservatives have pummeled the Obama administration, and especially Holder, for more than a year. “Who authorized this program that was sofelony stupid that it got people killed?” Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, demanded to know in a hearing in June 2011. He has charged the Justice Department, which oversees the ATF, with having “blood on their hands.” Issa and more than 100 other Republican members of Congress have demanded Holder’s resignation.

The conflict has escalated dramatically in the past ten days. On June 20, in a day of political brinkmanship, Issa’s committee voted along party lines, 23 to 17, to hold Holder in contempt of Congress for allegedly failing to turn over certain subpoenaed documents, which the Justice Department contended could not be released because they related to ongoing criminal investigations. The vote came hours after President Obama asserted executive privilege to block the release of the documents. Holder now faces a vote by the full House of Representatives this week on the contempt motion (though negotiations over the documents continue). Assuming a vote occurs, it will be the first against an attorney general in U.S. history.

As political pressure has mounted, ATF and Justice Department officials have reversed themselves. After initially supporting Group VII agents and denying the allegations, they have since agreed that the ATF purposefully chose not to interdict guns it lawfully could have seized. Holder testified in December that “the use of this misguided tactic is inexcusable, and it must never happen again.”

There’s the rub.

Quite simply, there’s a fundamental misconception at the heart of the Fast and Furious scandal. Nobody disputes that suspected straw purchasers under surveillance by the ATF repeatedly bought guns that eventually fell into criminal hands. Issa and others charge that the ATF intentionally allowed guns to walk as an operational tactic. But five law-enforcement agents directly involved in Fast and Furious tell Fortune that the ATF had no such tactic. They insist they never purposefully allowed guns to be illegally trafficked. Just the opposite: They say they seized weapons whenever they could but were hamstrung by prosecutors and weak laws, which stymied them at every turn.

Indeed, a six-month Fortune investigation reveals that the public case alleging that Voth and his colleagues walked guns is replete with distortions, errors, partial truths, and even some outright lies. Fortune reviewed more than 2,000 pages of confidential ATF documents and interviewed 39 people, including seven law-enforcement agents with direct knowledge of the case. Several, including Voth, are speaking out for the first time.

How Fast and Furious reached the headlines is a strange and unsettling saga, one that reveals a lot about politics and media today. It’s a story that starts with a grudge, specifically Dodson’s anger at Voth. After the terrible murder of agent Terry, Dodson made complaints that were then amplified, first by right-wing bloggers, then by CBS. Rep. Issa and other politicians then seized those elements to score points against the Obama administration, which, for its part, has capitulated in an apparent effort to avoid a rhetorical battle over gun control in the run-up to the presidential election. (A Justice Department spokesperson denies this and asserts that the department is not drawing conclusions until the inspector general’s report is submitted.)

“Republican senators are whipping up the country into a psychotic frenzy with these reports that are patently false,” says Linda Wallace, a special agent with the Internal Revenue Service’s criminal investigation unit who was assigned to the Fast and Furious team (and recently retired from the IRS). A self-described gun-rights supporter, Wallace has not been criticized by Issa’s committee.

The ATF’s accusers seem untroubled by evidence that the policy they have pilloried didn’t actually exist. “It gets back to something basic for me,” says Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa). “Terry was murdered, and guns from this operation were found at his murder site.” A spokesman for Issa denies that politics has played a role in the congressman’s actions and says “multiple individuals across the Justice Department’s component agencies share responsibility for the failure that occurred in Operation Fast and Furious.” Issa’s spokesman asserts that even if ATF agents followed prosecutors’ directives, “the practice is nonetheless gun walking.” Attorneys for Dodson declined to comment on the record.

For its part, the ATF would not answer specific questions, citing ongoing investigations. But a spokesperson for the agency provided a written statement noting that the “ATF did not exercise proper oversight, planning or judgment in executing this case. We at ATF have accepted responsibility and have taken appropriate and decisive action to insure that these errors in oversight and judgment never occur again.” The statement asserted that the “ATF has clarified its firearms transfer policy to focus on interdiction or early intervention to prevent the criminal acquisition, trafficking and misuse of firearms,” and it cited changes in coordination and oversight at the ATF.

Irony abounds when it comes to the Fast and Furious scandal. But the ultimate irony is this: Republicans who support the National Rifle Association and its attempts to weaken gun laws are lambasting ATF agents for not seizing enough weapons—ones that, in this case, prosecutors deemed to be legal.

The investigation begins

The ATF is a bureau of judgment calls. Drug enforcement agents can confiscate cocaine and arrest anyone in possession of it. But ATF agents must distinguish constitutionally protected legal guns from illegal ones, with the NRA and other Second Amendment activists watching for missteps.

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder

Critics have depicted the ATF as “jackbooted government thugs” trampling on the rights of law-abiding gun owners. From the deadly standoff with the Branch Davidian cult in Waco, Texas, in 1993 to allegations that ATF agents illegally seized weapons from suspected straw purchasers at a Richmond  gun show in 2005, these scandals have helped cement the bureau’s reputation in some quarters for law-enforcement overreach.

In part because of these notorious cases, the bureau has operated in a self-protective crouch. It has stuck to small single-defendant cases to the detriment of its effort to combat gun trafficking, the Justice Department’s inspector general found in a review of ATF cases from 2007 to 2009. To refocus its efforts, the ATF established Group VII and the other Southwest border units to build big, multi-defendant conspiracy cases and target the leaders of the trafficking operations.

Of course, the ATF can be its own worst enemy. Voth arrived in Phoenix in December 2009 only to discover that his group had not been funded. The group had little equipment and no long guns, electronic devices, or binoculars, forcing Voth to scrounge for supplies.

Then there was Voth’s seven-agent team, which was almost instantly at war with itself. Most of the agents were transplants, unfamiliar with Arizona or one another. Fast and Furious’ lead case agent, Hope MacAllister, 41, was the exception—a tough, squared-away Phoenix veteran with little tolerance for complaints. Her unsmiling demeanor led Voth to give her the ironic nickname “Sunshine Bear.” She declined to be interviewed.

Dodson, 41, arrived one day before Voth from a two-man outpost of ATF’s Roanoke field office, where he’d worked since 2002. He had joined the ATF from the narcotics section of the Loudoun County sheriff’s office in Virginia, where his blunt, even obnoxious manner did not earn him friends. He’s “an asshole sometimes—there is no other way to put it,” says his former partner, Ken Dondero, who served as best man at Dodson’s wedding. “He’s almost too honest. He believes that if he has a thought in his head, it’s there to broadcast to everyone.”

Voth, MacAllister, and a third agent, Tonya English, were quintessential by-the-book types. By contrast, Dodson and two other new arrivals, Olindo “Lee” Casa and Lawrence Alt, seemed to chafe at ATF rules and procedures. (An attorney for Casa says that “in light of the current congressional investigation, as well as investigations by the Department of Justice Inspector General and the Office of Special Counsel” it would be premature to comment. A lawyer for Alt says Alt could not be interviewed because he is in mediation to settle a suit he filed in which he charges that he was retaliated against for being a whistleblower.)

Dodson’s faction grew antagonistic to Voth. They regularly fired off snide e-mails and seemed to delight in mocking Voth and his methodical nature. They were scornful of protocol, according to ATF agents. Dodson would show up to work in flip-flops. He came unprepared for operations—without safety equipment or back-up plans—and was pulled off at least one surveillance for his own safety, say two colleagues. He earned the nickname “Renegade,” and soon Voth’s group effectively divided into two clashing factions: the Sunshine Bears and the Renegades.

Even had they all gotten along, they faced a nearly impossible task. They were seven agents pursuing more than a dozen cases, of which Fast and Furious was just one, their efforts complicated by a lack of adequate tools. Without a real-time database of gun sales, they had to perform a laborious archaeology. Day after day, they visited local gun dealers and pored over forms called 4473s, which dealers must keep on file. These contain a buyer’s personal information, a record of purchased guns and their serial numbers, and a certification that the buyer is purchasing the guns for himself. (Lying on the forms is a felony, but with weak penalties attached.) The ATF agents manually entered these serial numbers into a database of suspect guns to help them build a picture of past purchases.

By January 2010 the agents had identified 20 suspects who had paid some $350,000 in cash for more than 650 guns. According to Rep. Issa’s congressional committee, Group VII had enough evidence to make arrests and close the case then.

Prosecutors: Transferring guns is legal in Arizona

This was not the view of federal prosecutors. In a meeting on Jan. 5, 2010, Emory Hurley, the assistant U.S. Attorney in Phoenix overseeing the Fast and Furious case, told the agents they lacked probable cause for arrests, according to ATF records. Hurley’s judgment reflected accepted policy at the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Arizona. “[P]urchasing multiple long guns in Arizona is lawful,” Patrick Cunningham, the U.S. Attorney’s then–criminal chief in Arizona would later write. “Transferring them to another is lawful and even sale or barter of the guns to another is lawful unless the United States can prove by clear and convincing evidence that the firearm is intended to be used to commit a crime.” (Arizona federal prosecutors referred requests for comment to the Justice Department, which declined to make officials available. Hurley noted in an e-mail, “I am not able to comment on what I understand to be an ongoing investigation/prosecution. I am precluded by federal regulation, DOJ policy, the rules of professional conduct, and court order from talking with you about this matter.” Cunningham’s attorney also declined to comment.)

It was nearly impossible in Arizona to bring a case against a straw purchaser. The federal prosecutors there did not consider the purchase of a huge volume of guns, or their handoff to a third party,  sufficient evidence to seize them. A buyer who certified that the guns were for himself, then handed them off minutes later, hadn’t necessarily lied and was free to change his mind. Even if a suspect bought 10 guns that were recovered days later at a Mexican crime scene, this didn’t mean the initial purchase had been illegal. To these prosecutors, the pattern proved little. Instead, agents needed to link specific evidence of intent to commit a crime to each gun they wanted to seize.

ATF agent John Dodson

None of the ATF agents doubted that the Fast and Furious guns were being purchased to commit crimes in Mexico. But that was nearly impossible to prove to prosecutors’ satisfaction. And agents could not seize guns or arrest suspects after being directed not to do so by a prosecutor. (Agents can be sued if they seize a weapon against prosecutors’ advice. In this case, the agents had a particularly strong obligation to follow the prosecutors’ direction given that Fast and Furious had received a special designation under the Justice Department’s Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force. That designation meant more resources for the case, but it also provided that prosecutors take the lead role.)

In their Jan. 5 meeting, Hurley suggested another way to make a case: Voth’s team could wiretap the phone of a suspected recruiter and capture proof of him directing straw purchasers to buy guns. This would establish sufficient proof to arrest both the leaders and the followers.

On Jan. 8, 2010, Voth and his supervisors drafted a briefing paper in which they explained Hurley’s view that “there was minimal evidence at this time to support any type of prosecution.” The paper elaborated, “Currently our strategy is to allow the transfer of firearms to continue to take place, albeit at a much slower pace, in order to further the investigation and allow for the identification of additional co-conspirators.”  

Rep. Issa’s committee has flagged this document as proof that the agents chose to walk guns. But prosecutors had determined, Voth says, that the “transfer of firearms” was legal. Agents had no choice but to keep investigating and start a wiretap as quickly as possible to gather evidence of criminal intent.

Ten days after the meeting with Hurley, a Saturday, Jaime Avila, a transient, admitted methamphetamine user, bought three WASR-10 rifles at the Lone Wolf Trading Company in Glendale, Ariz. The next day, a helpful Lone Wolf employee faxed Avila’s purchase form to ATF to flag the suspicious activity. It was the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend, so the agents didn’t receive the fax until Tuesday, according to a contemporaneous case report. By that time, the legally purchased guns had been gone for three days. The agents had never seen the weapons and had no chance to seize them. But they entered the serial numbers into their gun database. Two of these were later recovered at Brian Terry’s murder scene.

Rebuffed by the prosecutors

Voth was a logical thinker. He lived by advice he received from an early mentor in law enforcement: “There’s what you think. There’s what you know. There’s what you can prove. And the first two don’t count.”

But he was not operating in a logical world. The wiretap represented the ATF’s best—perhaps only— hope of connecting the gun purchases it had been documenting to orders from the cartels, according to Hurley. In Minneapolis, the prosecutors Voth had worked with had approved wiretap applications within 24 hours. But in Phoenix, days turned into weeks, and Group VII’s wiretap application languished with prosecutors in Arizona and Washington, D.C.

No one has yet explained this delay. Voth thinks prosecutor Hurley’s inexperience in wiretapping cases may have slowed the process. Several other agents speculate that Arizona’s gun culture may have led to indifference. Hurley is an avid gun enthusiastaccording to two law-enforcement sources who worked with him. One of those sources says he saw Hurley behind the counter at a gun show, helping a friend who is a weapons dealer.

William Newell, then special agent in charge of the ATF’s Phoenix field division, suspected that U.S. Attorney Dennis Burke, an Obama appointee, was not being briefed adequately by deputies about the volume of guns being purchased. He wrote to colleagues in February 2010 that the prosecutor seemed “taken aback by some of the facts I informed him about”—by then, the Fast and Furious suspects had purchased 800 guns—”so I am setting up a briefing for him (alone no USAO ‘posse’) about this case and several other cases I feel he is being misled about.”

The conflict between federal prosecutors and ATF agents had been growing for years. Pete Forcelli, who served as group supervisor of ATF’s Phoenix I field division for five years, told Congress in June 2011 that he believed Arizona federal prosecutors made up excuses to decline cases. “Despite the existence [of] probable cause in many cases,” he testified, “there were no indictments, no prosecutions, and criminals were allowed to walk free.” Prosecutors in Los Angeles and New York were far more aggressive in pursuing gun cases, Forcelli asserted.

Phoenix-based ATF agents became so frustrated by prosecutors’ intransigence that, in a highly unusual move, they began bringing big cases to the state attorney general’s office instead. Terry Goddard, Arizona’s Attorney General from 2003 to 2011, says of federal prosecutors, “They demanded that every i be dotted, every t be crossed, and after a while, it got to be nonsensical.”

For prosecutors, straw-purchasing cases were hard to prove and unrewarding to prosecute, with minimal penalties attached. In December 2010, five U.S. Attorneys along the Southwest border, including Burke in Arizona, wrote to the U.S. Sentencing Commission, asking that penalties for straw purchasing be increased. The commission did increase the recommended jail time by a few months. But because the straw purchasers, by definition, have no criminal record and there is no firearms-trafficking statute that would allow prosecutors to charge them with conspiracy as a group, the penalties remain low.

Prosecutors repeatedly rebuffed Voth’s requests. After examining one suspect’s garbage, agents learned he was on food stamps yet had plunked down more than $300,000 for 476 firearms in six months. Voth asked if the ATF could arrest him for fraudulently accepting public assistance when he was spending such huge sums. Prosecutor Hurley said no. In another instance, a young jobless suspect paid more than $10,000 for a 50-caliber tripod-mounted sniper rifle. According to Voth, Hurley told the agents they lacked proof that he hadn’t bought the gun for himself.

Voth grew deeply frustrated. In August 2010, after the ATF in Texas confiscated 80 guns—63 of them purchased in Arizona by the Fast and Furious suspects— Voth got an e-mail from a colleague there: “Are you all planning to stop some of these guys any time soon? That’s a lot of guns…Are you just letting these guns walk?”

Voth responded with barely suppressed rage: “Have I offended you in some way? Because I am very offended by your e-mail. Define walk? Without Probable Cause and concurrence from the USAO [U.S. Attorney’s Office] it is highway robbery if we take someone’s property.” He then recounted the situation with the unemployed suspect who had bought the sniper rifle. “We conducted a field interview and after calling the AUSA [assistant U.S. Attorney] he said we did not have sufficient PC [probable cause] to take the firearm so our suspect drove home with said firearm in his car…any ideas on how we could not let that firearm ‘walk'”?

Voth believed the wiretap could help bring the case to a swift and successful close. On March 5, 2010, ten days before their first wiretap was set to begin, Voth was in Washington, D.C., to brief ATF brass and Justice Department officials on Fast and Furious. The response was overwhelmingly positive. A senior ATF attorney wrote Voth, “This is exactly the types of cases ATF should be doing with a wire, it is fantastic.”

The schism inside Phoenix Group VII

Voth returned to Phoenix fully expecting his team to unite for the work that lay ahead. But instead he found a minor mutiny—over the schedule for the wire, which needed to be monitored around the clock. Dodson didn’t want to work weekends. Casa felt his seniority should exclude him from the effort.

Agents were getting pulled from other field offices to assist, and on March 11, one wrote to ask Voth, “You’re not going to give the out-of-towners the crappy shifts, are you?” Voth responded, “I am attempting to split the weekends so everyone has to work one of the two days that way no one gets screwed too hard and everybody gets screwed a little bit.”

The next day, March 12, Voth sent out the wire schedule at 5:15 p.m. but got such a blizzard of complaints about the shifts that, two hours later, he sent another e-mail to the group. It read in part: “[T]here may be a schism developing amongst the group. This is the time we all need to pull together not drift apart. We are all entitled to our respective (albeit different) opinions however we all need to get along and realize we have a mission to accomplish. I am thrilled and proud that our Group is the first ATF Southwest Border Group in the country to be going up on [a] wire…I will be damned if this case is going to suffer due to petty arguing, rumors or other adolescent behavior…I don’t know what all the issues are but we are all adults, we are all professionals, and we have an exciting opportunity to use the biggest tool in our law enforcement tool box. If you don’t think this is fun you’re in the wrong line of work—period! This is the pinnacle of domestic U.S. law-enforcement techniques. After this the tool box is empty.” 

The wire turned out to be short lived. Within days, the agents realized that their suspect was phasing out use of the phone they were monitoring. Group VII would have to reapply, all over again, for permission to tap the new phone number.

But Voth’s so-called “schism e-mail” would live in infamy. Today it is held up as proof that the group was desperately divided over the tactic of gun walking and that Voth belittled those who opposed it. But there is no documentary evidence that agents Dodson, Casa, or Alt complained to their supervisors about the alleged gun walking, had confrontations about it, or were retaliated against because of their complaints, as they all later claimed.

Who’s opposed to gun walking? 

The atmosphere inside Voth’s group had become toxic. The subjects of dispute were often trivial. For example, when Voth asked Casa to turn off his computer’s Godzilla sound effect, which roared each time he got an e-mail, Casa replied, “I have done some limited research and have found no ATF order or internal division memo addressing this issue.”

Voth remained even-tempered but did take a stand after one incident. Alt taped to Voth’s door an eight-point takedown of agent MacAllister, sarcastically stating that she was in charge ofeverything. Voth reported the note to an ATF attorney, and Alt apologized. It’s unclear what drove the men’s anger, but it seems unlikely that it was caused by disagreements over alleged gun walking.

How is it possible to deduce that? Because Dodson then proceeded to walk guns intentionally, with Casa and Alt’s help. On April 13, 2010, one month after Voth wrote his schism e-mail, Dodson opened a case into a suspected gun trafficker named Isaiah Fernandez. He had gotten Casa to approve the case when Voth was on leave. Dodson had directed a cooperating straw purchaser to give three guns to Fernandez and had taped their conversations without a prosecutor’s approval.

Voth first learned these details a month into the case. He demanded that Dodson meet with him and get approval from prosecutors to tape conversations. Five days later, Dodson sent an uncharacteristically diplomatic response. (He and Alt had revised repeated drafts in that time, with Alt pushing to make the reply “less abrasive.” Dodson e-mailed back: “Less abrasive? I felt sick from kissing all that ass as it was.”) Dodson wrote that he succeeded in posing undercover as a straw purchaser and claimed that prosecutor Hurley—who he had just belatedly contacted—had raised “new concerns.” The prosecutor had told Dodson that an assistant U.S. Attorney “won’t be able to approve of letting firearms ‘walk’ in furtherance of your investigation without first briefing the U.S. Attorney and Criminal Chief.”

It was the first time Voth learned that Dodson intended to walk guns. Voth says he refused to approve the plan and instead consulted his supervisor, who asked for a proposal from Dodson in writing. Dodson then drafted one, which Voth forwarded to his supervisor, who approved it on May 28.

On June 1, Dodson used $2,500 in ATF funds to purchase six AK Draco pistols from local gun dealers, and gave these to Fernandez, who reimbursed him and gave him $700 for his efforts. Two days later, according to case records, Dodson—who would later testify that in his previous experience, “if even one [gun] got away from us, nobody went home until we found it”—left on a scheduled vacation without interdicting the guns. That day, Voth wrote to remind him that money collected as evidence needed to be vouchered within five days. Dodson e-mailed back, his sarcasm fully restored: “Do the orders define a ‘day’? Is it; a calendar day? A business day or work day….? An Earth day (because a day on Venus takes 243 Earth days which would mean that I have plenty of time)?”

The guns were never recovered, the case was later closed, and Fernandez was never charged. By any definition, it was gun walking of the most egregious sort: a government agent using taxpayer money to deliver guns to bad guys and then failing to intercept them.

On Feb. 4, 2011, the Justice Department sent a letter to Sen. Grassley saying that the allegations of gun walking in Fast and Furious were false and that ATF always tried to interdict weapons. A month later, Grassley countered with what appeared to be slam-dunk proof that ATF had indeed walked guns. “[P]lease explain how the denials in the Justice Department’s Feb. 4, 2011 letter to me can be squared with the evidence,” Grassley wrote, attaching damning case reports that he contended “proved that ATF allowed guns to ‘walk.'” The case and agent names were redacted, but the reports were not from Fast and Furious. They came entirely from Dodson’s Fernandez case.

An unusual alliance

By the end of July 2010, the Fast and Furious investigation was largely complete. The agents had sent prosecutors 20 names for immediate indictment, Jaime Avila’s among them. His purchase of the three WASR-10s were listed among his criminal acts. On Aug. 17, 2010, ATF agents met in Phoenix with prosecutors, including U.S. Attorney Dennis Burke. According to two people present, the ATF presented detailed evidence, including the fact that their suspects had purchased almost 2,000 guns, and pushed for indictments. A month later, on Sept. 17, an ATF team—this time including ATF director Kenneth Melson—met with prosecutors again and again pushed for action. The sides agreed to aim for indictments by October, according to one person in attendance.

But as weeks and then months passed, prosecutors did not issue indictments. The ATF agents grew increasingly concerned. By December, prosecutors had dropped Avila’s name from the indictment list for what they deemed a lack of evidence.

Only when Terry, the U.S. Border Patrol agent, was murdered in December 2010 did the prosecutors act. Voth’s agents arrested Avila within 24 hours of Terry’s death. On Jan. 19, 2011, a federal grand jury indicted him and 19 other suspects. (Avila has since pleaded guilty to dealing guns without a license).

Meanwhile, a crucial part of the Fast and Furious scandal—an unusual alliance that would prod politicians and spread word of the failure to stop guns from making their way to Mexican drug cartels—was waiting in the wings. Little more than a week after Terry’s murder, a small item about the possible connection between his death and the Fast and Furious case appeared on a website, CleanUpATF.org. The site was the work of a disgruntled ATF agent-turned-whistleblower, Vince Cefalu, who is suing the bureau for alleged mistreatment in an unrelated case. His website has served as a clearinghouse for grievances and a magnet for other ATF whistleblowers.

It had also attracted gun-rights activists loosely organized around a blog called the Sipsey Street Irregulars, run by a former militia member, Mike Vanderboegh, who has advocated armed insurrection against the U.S. government. It was an incendiary combination: the disgruntled ATF agents wanted to punish and reform the bureau; the gun-rights activists wanted to disable it. After the item about Terry appeared, the bloggers funneled the allegations through a “desert telegraph” of sorts to Republican lawmakers, who began asking questions.

A week after the initial Fast and Furious press conference in January 2011, Dodson dropped a small bombshell. He told a supervisor that he had been contacted by congressional staff. Dodson met that day with two ATF supervisors. According to their written contemporaneous accounts, Dodson was vague but claimed that Voth had always “treated him like shit” and that it “felt good” to speak with someone outside ATF.

Dodson appeared on the CBS Evening News a week later. As Voth watched the program from his living room, he says, he wanted to vomit. He saw sentences from his “schism” e-mail reproduced on the TV screen. But CBS didn’t quote the portions of Voth’s e-mail that described how the group was divided by “petty arguing” and “adolescent behavior.” Instead, CBS claimed the schism had been caused by opposition to gun walking (such alleged opposition is not discussed anywhere in the e-mail, which is below). CBS asserted that Dodson and others had protested the tactic “over and over,” and then quoted portions of Voth’s e-mail in a way that left the impression that gun walking was endorsed at headquarters. CBS contacted the ATF (but not Voth directly). The result was a report that incorrectly painted Voth as zealously promoting gun walking. (A CBS spokeswoman, Sonya McNair, says CBS does not publicly discuss its editorial process but notes, “The White House has already acknowledged the truth of our report.”)

The “Witch Hunt”

Less than 36 hours after the CBS report, Voth was jolted awake at dawn by the blaring of his burglar alarm. With his wife and children still in bed, he crept down the stairs of his desert home, his ATF-issued .40 caliber Sig Sauer extended before him. In the garage, he saw a door ajar and a massive kettle bell he used for workouts knocked from its place. Outside, the fleeing intruder had left behind a partial footprint in the sand.

As Voth waited for the police, he checked his e-mail and found an anonymous threat, sent minutes earlier: “You God-damned stupid ‘Yes-Man’ who does not have either the morals, or the intelligence, to realize that allowing this ‘Fast and Furious’ operation would result in unnecessary, unjustified deaths.” Later his wife found a strange car outside their house and an angry post on the Internet listing their home address. Voth confidentially shared his concern about that post in a meeting with two senior ATF officials, only to find an account of the meeting on the Sipsey Street blog within 24 hours.

The ATF’s office of operations security investigated the threats to Voth. A confidential report on March 29, 2011, concluded, “ATF ‘insiders’ are the number one threat to GS Voth and his family.” The report cited “at least six individuals,” whom it did not name, who had “personal agendas to undermine the credibility of ATF supervisors and members of management as retribution for [Voth’s] operational shortcomings.” The report cited the two blogs and concluded that “the malicious intent of insiders” had led directly to Voth’s becoming the target of a “nation-wide…libel campaign.”

Politicians soon got involved, and the situation grew worse for the ATF. In June, Republican staffers for the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and the Senate Judiciary Committee released a joint report that leaned heavily on interviews with Dodson, Casa, and Alt and identified Voth as a central figure in the scandal. It quoted Dodson describing Voth as “giddy” over the slaughter in Mexico—Voth says he was deeply upset by the violence—but didn’t reflect Voth’s perspective. The report was released two weeks before Voth was scheduled to be questioned for the first time by congressional investigators. (A spokesman for Issa says the committee attempted to interview Voth earlier.)

As the allegations mounted, pressure intensified. In early July the ATF’s once supportive acting director, Melson—who according to e-mails had been briefed weekly on the case—went to Congress and threw his own people under the bus. Melson told Grassley that he had read the case reports only after the scandal broke, and had been “sick to his stomach,” according to press accounts of the meeting. In August, Melson resigned, as did Arizona’s U.S. Attorney, Burke. (Melson’s lawyer, Richard Cullen, says the Justice Department’s inspector general will likely answer many of the continuing questions.) In December 2011, the Justice Department retracted its Feb. 4 letter, in which it had denied walking guns in the Fast and Furious case.

For Voth, steeped in military loyalty, Melson’s betrayal was the blow he couldn’t fathom. Voth began losing weight, losing sleep. As he puts it, “You barely remember your own name, your mind is going 100 miles an hour.” He no longer knew what to do or who could be trusted. “There would be no way,” he says, “to foreshadow this.”

Since the scandal erupted, almost everyone associated with Fast and Furious has been reassigned. Dodson, Casa, and Alt have been transferred to other field offices. Voth, who has now been interviewed by congressional investigators and the Justice Department’s inspector general, has been reassigned to a desk job in Washington.

New facts are still coming to light—and will likely continue to do so with the Justice Department inspector general’s report expected in coming months. Among the discoveries: Fast and Furious’ top suspects—Sinaloa Cartel operatives and Mexican nationals who were providing the money, ordering the guns, and directing the recruitment of the straw purchasers—turned out to be FBI informants who were receiving money from the bureau. That came as news to the ATF agents in Group VII.

Today, with Attorney General Holder now squarely in the cross hairs of Congress, Democrats and Republicans are accusing each other of political machinations. Rep. Elijah Cummings, a Maryland Democrat and ranking member of the oversight committee, has accused Issa of targeting Holder as part of an “election-year witch hunt.” Issa has alleged on Fox News that Fast and Furious is part of a liberal conspiracy to restrict gun rights: “Very clearly, [the ATF] made a crisis and they are using this crisis to somehow take away or limit people’s Second Amendment rights.” (Issa has a personal history on this issue: In 1972, at age 19, he was arrested for having a concealed, loaded .25-caliber automatic in his car; he ultimately pleaded guilty to possession of an unregistered gun.)

Issa’s claim that the ATF is using the Fast and Furious scandal to limit gun rights seems, to put it charitably, far-fetched. Meanwhile, Issa and other lawmakers say they want ATF to stanch the deadly tide of guns, widely implicated in the killing of 47,000 Mexicans in the drug-war violence of the past five years. But the public bludgeoning of the ATF has had the opposite effect. From 2010, when Congress began investigating, to 2011, gun seizures by Group VII and the ATF’s three other groups in Phoenix dropped by more than 90%.

File photo of Fernando Bargallo from 2009

26 June 2012             20:03 ET

The Pope has accepted the resignation of an Argentine bishop after the publication of pictures showing him embracing a woman on a Mexican beach.

Bishop Fernando Bargallo, 57, was photographed in the sea, hugging a woman in a bikini.

He initially said she was a childhood friend, but later admitted to having had “amorous ties” with her.

Bishop Bargallo was in charge of the diocese of Merlo-Moreno, in the province of Buenos Aires.

The scandal broke last week, when an Argentine television station broadcast pictures of Monsignor Bargallo on holiday at a beach resort in Mexico in the company of a woman.

‘Childhood friend’

In one of the pictures, he is seen half-submerged in the water, embracing a woman in a bikini.

Shortly after the pictures were published, Monsignor Bargallo gave a public statement saying that the woman was a childhood friend, whom he had known all of his life.

He said the situation in which he had been photographed was “imprudent, as it could lead people to jump to the wrong conclusion”.

He asked his flock to forgive him for “the ambiguity of the pictures” and urged them to view the photos “in the context of a long friendship”.

But later that same week, Monsignor Bargallo convened the priests of his diocese and told them he had had “amorous ties” with the woman and would resign.

The Vatican said he would be replaced by Monsignor Alcides Jorge Pedro Casaretto.

June 23, 2012           11:27 am

Mexican authorities have acknowledged that they made a mistake when they claimed to have arrested the son of fugitive drug lord Joaquin “Chapo” Guzman earlier in the week.

The man captured by Mexican marines Thursday and initially identified as Jesus Alfredo Guzman Salazar is in fact Felix Beltran, a 23-year-old car dealer, the federal attorney general’s office said in a brief statement late Friday.

The gaffe is an embarrassment to supporters of President Felipe Calderon, who had hailed the arrest, coming just days before Mexico’s July 1 presidential election, as an important victory in the government’s bloody war on drug cartels.

In its statement, the attorney-general’s office did not give details on how it had established Beltran’s identity nor did it explain how the mistake was made. In presenting the man to reporters, the military had said “intelligence work” had led to the arrest in Zapopan, a suburb of Guadalajara.

A woman claiming to be Beltran’s mother held a news conference with an attorney Friday and pointed out the error. She offered pictures of her son.

Earlier this month, the United States placed the Guzman son on its Treasury Department black list, along with other members of the family, barring them from doing business with U.S. companies or individuals and alleging they play roles in Chapo Guzman’s multibillion-dollar drug business.

June 22, 2012

People like Ana Venegas are said to be living “in the shadows.”

It’s the most annoying of all the metaphors in the immigration debate. And woefully inaccurate.

Venegas, 23, entered this country illegally as a 10-month-old baby carried across the Mexico-U.S. border by her teenage mother. She’s never been able to legalize her status. That makes her “undocumented,” if you’re someone sympathetic to her plight. And an “illegal” if you’re not.

But whatever you want to call her, the one thing you can’t say about Ana is that she’s been hiding. For 22 years she’s lived in the bright sunshine of South Gate, in a neighborhood that looks like a bonsai-tree version of the American dream.

The homes are small and orderly. The tallest shadows are those cast by the line of power-transmission towers that run nearby.

Ana grew up under those towers, always aware that there was something that separated her from most of the other children in the neighborhood, and even from most of her relatives. She first remembers being aware of it on the playground, on hot days when she and the other kids bared their arms.

“I knew I was from Mexico because of this little mark I have,” Venegas told me, referring to a vaccination scar on her shoulder. “Everyone that was born in Mexico had that mark.”

In the years that followed, what it meant to have the “mark” of a Mexican birth grew. Her life had complications most of her friends didn’t share: not being able to drive, or get a paying job, or financial aid for college, even if she was an A student. Despite all that, she graduated from Cal State L.A., just a few weeks ago.

“Getting educated made me a better person,” she told me. “It could have been easier, but it was worth it.”

When President Obama announced last week that the government would begin granting work permits to certain, young undocumented immigrants, it was all a bit anticlimactic for Ana. She’d been working so hard to overcome the obstacles in her path, and for so long, that she began to realize that her illegal status had actually made her a better person.

“I don’t know if I would have gotten the grades that I did, or achieved what I did if I hadn’t been undocumented,” she said. “For me, school doesn’t measure your intelligence. It measures your endurance. I have a lot of endurance.”

Ana and people like her persevered. In high schools, in university classrooms, in law schools, and on battlefields under the U.S. flag, they reached for public success. Instead of lingering in the metaphorical shadows, they climbed up on the stage of American achievement. In doing so, they forced all of us to face up to the contradiction of their existence.

“They pledge allegiance to our flag,” Obama said last week. “They are Americans in their heart, in their minds, in every single way but one: on paper.”

That was, for me, the most remarkable thing about the Obama administration’s announcement last week: to hear a president of the United States celebrate the Americanness of a group of people who’ve been vilified as aliens and “criminals” by so many Americans.

Ana always considered herself an American, even though she’s been reminded of her otherness for as long as she can remember.

Growing up in South Gate, some Latino kids would taunt her with a certain ugly slur for illegal immigrant. Many knew the story of how she’d crossed over: with the papers of a baby boy cousin who was about the same age.

Even that cousin would tease her, she said. “He’d tell me, ‘If it wasn’t for me, you wouldn’t be here.'”

Like many an American before her, Venegas took her outsider status and transformed it into the burning flame that powered her ambition. She became an assiduous follower of every rule placed before her, religious in her observance of all the routines in her young life.

“I never had to tell her to do her homework, and I never had to wake her up to go to school because she’d always wake up on her own,” Ana’s mother, Ana Luisa Gonzalez, told me in Spanish.

When I asked Gonzalez, a 42-year-old garment worker, to pin down the secret behind her daughter’s success, she answered with a phrase you hear a lot in the homes of Spanish-speaking L.A.: “Se portaba bien.” She behaved.

Ana told me much the same thing: “I just followed the rules. I showed up. I didn’t question authority.” Among other things, she had perfect attendance during four years in high school.

During her senior year at South Gate High, many of her friends got into top-notch universities: Harvard, UCLA, USC. Venegas was accepted into UC Riverside, but couldn’t afford to go without financial aid.

“My parents offered to sell the house and move to Riverside, but I didn’t want them to do that,” she said.

She went to East Los Angeles College instead, and then transferred to Cal State L.A., enduring several hours on the bus each day. Tuition increased every year, and she couldn’t work to help her parents to pay for it. More than once she considered giving up.

“If you believe in God, you also believe there’s evil in the world,” Venegas said. “And sometimes I thought, ‘Devil, you’re not going to bring me down.'”

On Saturday, she graduated from Cal State with a 3.9 grade-point average. Ana’s mother recently received U.S. residency, and Ana herself recently became engaged to a U.S. citizen. She figured she’d eventually get her legal residency anyway. But hearing the president’s words were a kind of affirmation that all her hard work meant something.

“It’s like the missing piece of the puzzle,” she told me. “Now it’s all making sense to me.”

A shadow has been lifted — not from the life of Ana Venegas, but from American discourse. Like thousands of others, Ana is here, she’s American, and she always has been. Now, perhaps, an honest conversation about immigration can begin.

from:  http://www.latimes.com/news/local/la-me-0622-tobar-20120622,0,4837893.column

—————————————————————————————

Each letter of the first name rules 9 years of life.  The first 27 years of life are ruled by the sum of the first three letters of the name.

Ana Venegas

1 (A is the 1st letter of the alphabet) + 14 (n is the 14th letter of the alphabet) + 1 (a is the 1st letter of the alphabet) = 16

So the number 16 rules her first twenty-seven years of life.

16 = Shocks.  Surprises.  Unexpected.  Unprecedented.

June 21, 2012

A man believed to be the son of Mexico’s most-wanted drug trafficker has been detained by the Mexican Navy, one of a series of recent moves aimed at toppling the elusive kingpin, Mexican officials said Thursday.

Jesús Aflredo Guzmán Salazar, 26, “the presumed son” of Joaquín Guzmán Loera, better known by his nickname, El Chapo, or Shorty, was arrested Thursday morning in Jalisco State, on the central Pacific Coast, along with another person, the navy said in a statement, but it did not say what charges they might face.

The two were taken to Mexico City and presented to the news media, with Mr. Guzmán Salazar, whom the navy described as “one of the main directors of the Sinaloa cartel,” looking somber and downcast.

Mr. Guzmán Salazar, Mexican officials said, managed his father’s real estate holdings and coordinated most of the drug organization’s shipments of cocaine and marijuana to the United States. American drug agents, Mexican officials said, assisted in providing information leading to his arrest.

The United States Treasury Department this month said it had placed Mr. Guzmán Salazar and his mother, María Alejandrina Salazar Hernández, on a financial sanctions list, a move intended to block money laundering by barring American businesses and citizens from doing business with them. He had been indicted in 2009 on several drug-related charges in a federal court in Illinois, making it possible he could be extradited to the United States.

The Mexican authorities in recent months have arrested men said to be crucial operatives in the Sinaloa drug organization run by Mr. Guzmán Loera.

Mr. Guzmán Loera, 55, who is believed to lead a worldwide cocaine- and marijuana-trafficking empire worth several billion dollars, faces drug trafficking and other charges in the United States and Mexico. He has been sought since escaping from prison in 2001 in a laundry cart after bribing his guards.

His family members, too, have been sought by the authorities and rival traffickers.

In 2008, another son, Édgar Guzmán López, 22, one of several children Mr. Guzmán Loera is believed to have fathered with different partners, was killed in a gunfight in Sinaloa, Mr. Guzmán Loera’s home state. Last year, a cousin, Juan Guzmán Rocha, 39, was found dead of gunshot wounds on a Sinaloa highway.

Another son, Ivan Archivaldo Guzmán Salazar, served a few years in prison on money-laundering charges but was released in 2008 by a judge who found the evidence lacking. That son and another, Ovidio Guzmán Lopez, were placed on the Treasury Department “black list” in May.

Griselda López Pérez, now a former wife of Mr. Guzmán Loera, was detained on unspecified charges in May 2010 for less than a day and released.

There has been widespread speculation here that Mr. Guzmán Loera would be caught before Mexico’s July 1 presidential election. The incumbent party of President Felipe Calderón, who has taken an aggressive stance against drug gang leaders, has been trailing in the polls behind Enrique Peña Nieto, the candidate of the Institutional Revolutionary Party, which has been fighting a reputation for being more accommodating to traffickers.

In August, Mr. Guzmán Loera’s current wife, Emma Coronel, a 22-year-old former beauty queen, gave birth to twins in a hospital in the Los Angeles area, but was not detained because there were no charges pending against her. She slipped back across the border with the babies.

June 21, 2012

A man believed to be the son of Mexico’s most-wanted drug trafficker has been detained by the Mexican Navy, one of a series of recent moves aimed at toppling the elusive kingpin, Mexican officials said Thursday.

Jesús Aflredo Guzmán Salazar, 26, “the presumed son” of Joaquín Guzmán Loera, better known by his nickname, El Chapo, or Shorty, was arrested Thursday morning in Jalisco State, on the central Pacific Coast, along with another person, the navy said in a statement, but it did not say what charges they might face.

The two were taken to Mexico City and presented to the news media, with Mr. Guzmán Salazar, whom the navy described as “one of the main directors of the Sinaloa cartel,” looking somber and downcast.

Mr. Guzmán Salazar, Mexican officials said, managed his father’s real estate holdings and coordinated most of the drug organization’s shipments of cocaine and marijuana to the United States. American drug agents, Mexican officials said, assisted in providing information leading to his arrest.

The United States Treasury Department this month said it had placed Mr. Guzmán Salazar and his mother, María Alejandrina Salazar Hernández, on a financial sanctions list, a move intended to block money laundering by barring American businesses and citizens from doing business with them. He had been indicted in 2009 on several drug-related charges in a federal court in Illinois, making it possible he could be extradited to the United States.

The Mexican authorities in recent months have arrested men said to be crucial operatives in the Sinaloa drug organization run by Mr. Guzmán Loera.

Mr. Guzmán Loera, 55, who is believed to lead a worldwide cocaine- and marijuana-trafficking empire worth several billion dollars, faces drug trafficking and other charges in the United States and Mexico. He has been sought since escaping from prison in 2001 in a laundry cart after bribing his guards.

His family members, too, have been sought by the authorities and rival traffickers.

In 2008, another son, Édgar Guzmán López, 22, one of several children Mr. Guzmán Loera is believed to have fathered with different partners, was killed in a gunfight in Sinaloa, Mr. Guzmán Loera’s home state. Last year, a cousin, Juan Guzmán Rocha, 39, was found dead of gunshot wounds on a Sinaloa highway.

Another son, Ivan Archivaldo Guzmán Salazar, served a few years in prison on money-laundering charges but was released in 2008 by a judge who found the evidence lacking. That son and another, Ovidio Guzmán Lopez, were placed on the Treasury Department “black list” in May.

Griselda López Pérez, now a former wife of Mr. Guzmán Loera, was detained on unspecified charges in May 2010 for less than a day and released.

There has been widespread speculation here that Mr. Guzmán Loera would be caught before Mexico’s July 1 presidential election.

Known as El Chapo for his short, stocky frame, Guzmán is 55, which in narco-years is about 150. He is a quasi-mythical figure in Mexico, the subject of countless ballads, who has outlived enemies and accomplices alike, defying the implicit bargain of a life in the drug trade: that careers are glittering but brief and always terminate in prison or the grave.”

Toronto Star “After nearly a decade at No. 2, last year’s death of Osama bin Laden bumped Mexican drug trafficker Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman to the top of Forbes magazine’s “World’s Most Wanted Man” list. Mexico and the U.S. have put their money where there mouths are, offering $7 million in rewards for his capture.”

Newsweek “After six years in office, Calderón is ready to step down in December, and the 50,000 people who have died during his drug war in Mexico continue to dominate the headlines. But a less-publicized and equally important story is that of the military generals spearheading the fight, the men who have led the charge against the ruthless, well-armed narcos who seem hellbent on reducing Mexico to a failed state.”

ht elizabeth olivas ll 120531 wblog Star Student in Immigration Flap Will Be Home For Graduation
May 31, 2012            4:52pm

High school senior Elizabeth Olivas is coming home. After getting caught up on an immigration technicality in her native Mexico, the Frankfort Indiana High School homecoming queen will get to walk with her classmates at graduation on Saturday.

The U.S. State Department confirmed to her immigration lawyer, Sarah L. Moshe,  that Olivas was given a visa to come back to the United States, Moshe told ABC News.

“The waiver was approved, and we just finished issuing and printing her visa,” an email from the State Department  said.  “We gave her the visa packet and I assume she will be leaving the Consulate momentarily (visa in hand!).  Congrats and best of luck to Elizabeth and her family!  She is very lucky to have such a great team working on her behalf.”

Olivas has lived in the U.S. since the age 4, and her father is a naturalized U.S. citizen. But after turning 18, according to the law, she had 180 days to return to Mexico  to apply for a long-term visa to the United States.  Without that visa she would become an illegal immigrant. So she and her father took the trip down to the Juarez consulate, only to realize they counted dates wrong because of leap year. Olivas was late by one day, initially told she would not be issued her long-term visa and without a  “humanitarian parole” visa waiver, she would not  be able to enter the United States again for three years.

But even the waiver process can be complicated. Waivers can take anywhere from three to eight months to be issued. Olivas couldn’t wait that long. She’d already been in Mexico for six weeks,  missing most of her high school senior milestones, including  prom and an academic achievement ceremony. With a near 4.0 grade point average, the star athlete is set to graduate as one of the top students at the school.  She is also supposed to give the salutation speech at graduation, which seemed an unlikely fete before her case received a global outcry.

The Indianapolis Star initially reported the story but newspapers and Web sites around the world, including ABC News.com.

Sarah L. Moshe received a text message from Elizabeth OLIVAS that read, “JUST GOT OUT VISA IN MY HANDS.  IM COMING HOME!  THANK YOU SO MUCH, IM SOO HAPPY!”

High school senior  Elizabeth Olivas thought she would be enjoying the last days at her Indiana high school with her classmates before graduating on Saturday.

Instead, the Frankfort High School homecoming queen is in her native Mexico, caught up in an immigration technicality that has her future in the United States straddled between U.S. government agencies, according to the Indianapolis Star.

Frankfort high school Principal Steve Edwards told the Star that students were sad at the thought of Olivas not being with them for graduation and that the situation was one of the hardest things he’s ever dealt with.

“This is a very skilled, talented, beautiful young lady,” he said.

But now Olivas and her classmates will be able to celebrate both their graduation and her homecoming.  She told her lawyer via text message that she was excited and grateful.

“JUST GOT OUT VISA IN MY HANDS,” read the text. ” IM COMING HOME!  THANK YOU SO MUCH, IM SOO HAPPY!”

Moshe told ABC News Olivas and her family are grateful for all the attention and concern over the teen’s plight.

“We take this opportunity to thank everyone for the outpouring of support for Elizabeth and her family,” Moshe said. “She will certainly enjoy a well-deserved graduation celebration on Saturday!”

May 24, 2012

The controversy surrounding Elizabeth Warren’s ethnic heritage and whether she misrepresented herself as a minority in the past may have engulfed her Senate campaign and the news media, but in parts of western Massachusetts, voters seem either mystified by it or unconcerned.

Desiree Smelcer, 35, a librarian here, said over lunch at the Egg and I that she had heard the buzz. But Ms. Smelcer, a Democrat who is one-eighth Apache, is more focused on the price of gas.

“I think she could be a little more aggressive about fighting back,” she said of Ms. Warren, who had been shaking hands with diners here. “But I’m more concerned about my own bottom line.”

A new poll out Wednesday in the closely watched Senate race indicated that Ms. Warren’s ancestry — the subject of intense media scrutiny and mockery for nearly a month — has so far not made much difference to voters. The poll, conducted by Suffolk University/7 News in Boston, showed the contest nearly even between Ms. Warren and Senator Scott P. Brown, the Republican who in 2010 snatched the seat long held by Edward M. Kennedy Jr.

Taking back “Teddy’s seat” in deep-blue Massachusetts is a top priority for Democrats, and the race has become the most expensive Senate campaign in the country. Ms. Warren, who had never run for office before, joined the race last year with great fanfare, having developed a national following as a crusading consumer advocate and a darling of the press, with the ability to raise serious money from the party’s liberal base.

But she was caught off guard on April 27 when The Boston Herald reported that Harvard Law School, where Ms. Warren teaches, had once spotlighted her as an American Indian — though she appears thoroughly Caucasian — when the school was under criticism for hiring too many white men. The story has ballooned since then, with opponents saying Ms. Warren has damaged her credibility; supporters say her ancestry is a nonissue.

Other polls have showed the race neck and neck, but Suffolk’s is the first to be conducted since the ancestry story has been marinating. It showed Ms. Warren with 47 percent of the vote compared with Mr. Brown’s 48 percent. It was conducted May 20 through May 22 with 600 likely voters, and had a margin of sampling error of plus or minus four percentage points. In February, a poll by the same group showed Mr. Brown ahead by 49 percent to 40 percent.

David Paleologos, director of the Suffolk poll, said the results indicated that both campaigns would be spending tens of millions of dollars “in an all-out war to woo the 5 percent of voters who will decide this election.”

The Warren campaign appeared relieved, given the daily drubbing by the Brown campaign and its allies in the news media and blogosphere. “It’s clear that the people of Massachusetts are not distracted by Republican Scott Brown’s negative attacks,” said Alethea Harney, a Warren spokeswoman.

The Brown campaign saw the poll as a modest victory. “We’re pleased with the results, given the fact that Scott Brown has been outspent on television 3 to 1 in the months of April and May,” said Colin Reed, a spokesman for Mr. Brown. (Mr. Brown has been advertising regularly on radio.)

The facts, as they have dribbled out, are these: Ms. Warren has in the past claimed an American Indian lineage, though she has no tangible proof of it. A genealogist who initially said he had discovered that she might be one thirty-second Cherokee subsequently said he could not locate the original documents.

She listed herself in a legal directory in the 1980s and ’90s as a minority in what critics say was an attempt to advance her academic career. In 1996, a Harvard official described her to The Harvard Crimson as a Native American. A Fordham University law review article in 1997 quoted that same official as saying she was Harvard’s “first woman of color.” In 2005, a decade after she left the University of Pennsylvania, it listed her as one of eight “minorities” who had won a particular award.

Ms. Warren has said she learned through “family lore” that she was descended from the Cherokee and Delaware tribes. She has said she listed herself in the legal directory as a minority in order to meet people like herself, though the listing did not specify her ethnicity. She has said she was unaware that Harvard and other colleges had put her forth as a diversity hire.

Officials from the law schools where she has taught have insisted that her ancestry played no role in her hiring and have scoffed at such suggestions.

May 24, 2012

Worried that her daughter may be on drugs, or worse, Angelica Aquirre did what any parent of a rebellious 13-year-old might do. She cracked down, set a curfew and thought about moving closer to her family in Mexico.

Now a distraught Aquirre is left wondering whether she was too harsh. Her daughter on Wednesday was in a juvenile detention facility in Apple Valley, accused of hatching a murder plot with two of her middle school friends.

The target: her mother.

“I don’t know what to say. I just can’t believe it,” Aquirre said, weeping as she sat at a kitchen table in the family’s tiny mobile home, a framed picture of Jesus on the wall.

Aquirre said she was in bed asleep early Tuesday morning when two attackers, strangers, broke into the trailer and began pummeling her.

“I thought they were robbing me,” she said in Spanish. “Then I saw my daughter was missing.”

Aquirre called police to report her daughter missing, but omitted the attack, according to police. By late Tuesday, detectives with the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department reached a disturbing conclusion: They believed her daughter had plotted the attack with two friends at Ranchero Middle School, a 14-year-old boy and 14-year-old girl.

“She just said that her daughter was gone, that she’d run away with two other kids,” sheriff’s spokeswoman Susan Rose said.

About 6:30 a.m., after her daughter had been found, the mother realized the gravity of what had happened and reported that “kids tried to kill her,” Rose said.

“There were three different means of attack,” she said, declining to elaborate because the incident remains under investigation. “We don’t really know the motive. We just believe it was more in line with the curfew and friends.”

Because all three suspects are juveniles, their names have not been released by sheriff’s officials. The Times is keeping the name of the daughter confidential.

Aquirre said her troubled relationship with her daughter soured further just over a month ago. Afraid her daughter was using drugs, she called the police. Her daughter, who denied it, ran away but returned a short time later.

Then, over the last few weeks, Aquirre noticed her daughter wasn’t eating and appeared ill in the mornings. Aquirre worried that she might be pregnant. The girl denied it. That’s when Aquirre, whose husband works as a long-haul trucker and is rarely home, imposed a curfew and she told her daughter the family may be moving back to Mexico.

“I don’t want to be here anymore,” Aquirre said.

Those mother-daughter travails were laid bare in a hand-drawn Mother’s Day card from just nine days before the attack. Decorated with simple hearts and crude stick figures, the card was filled with pleas in Spanish for forgiveness and understanding.

“Mom, I know that we don’t get along well and I shout at you. Please forgive me for what I did to you, that I yell and tell you that I don’t love you, but yes I love you,” the daughter said in the card. “I hope you can forgive me. I promise that I will behave well. Happy Mother’s Day.”

Talk of the alleged murder plot swept through Hesperia, a high desert community of 90,000 north of the San Bernardino Mountains, and filled the halls at Ranchero Middle School on Wednesday, the last school day of the year. Television news trucks greeted students and their parents as they drove through a choking desert dust storm to the campus.

Mark McKinney, superintendent of the Hesperia Unified School District, said the arrests were shocking and “sad news to hear.”

“It’s a tragedy, and we really feel for those involved,” McKinney said Wednesday morning outside campus. “It’s the last day of school and we’re just trying to keep everything as normal as possible.”

18 May 2012         14:09 ET

A third Mexican general has been detained for alleged links with a drug trafficking cartel.

Gen Ricardo Escorcia Vargas was detained as part of an investigation into organised crime.

On Tuesday two other senior officers – Gen Tomas Angeles Dauahare and Gen Roberto Dawe Gonzalez – were put under house arrest in connection with the same allegations, which they deny.

They are suspected of involvement with the Beltran Leyva cartel.

The organisation has smuggled cocaine, heroin and other illegal drugs into the United States.

But Mexico’s powerful drug cartels have been under systematic attack since President Felipe Calderon launched a war on drugs six years ago.

The army has played a key role in that effort, with troops deployed across the country.

Drug-related violence since 2006 has killed more than 50,000 people in Mexico.

Strategic positions

The three generals detained this week have all occupied strategic posts in Mexico’s anti-drugs effort.

Gen Angeles was assistant defence minister from 2006 to 2008, when he retired – a decision which surprised Mexican commentators.

Gen Dawe was the commander of an army division in Colima state, in Mexico’s Pacific coast, an important trafficking route.

Gen Escorcia was in charge of the military in Morelos state, the command centre of the Beltran Leyva cartel.

A judge has put Gen Angeles and Gen Dawe under house arrest for 40 days, while the investigation proceeds.

A statement from the Attorney General’s office says several witnesses have already testified against the generals.

Carlos Fuentes of Mexico

May 15, 2012

The prize-winning writer Carlos Fuentes, modern Mexico’s greatest novelist and indefatigable author of screenplays, stories and often-scolding commentaries, died Tuesday at a hospital in Mexico City. He was 83.

The national culture council announced Fuentes’ death. Although it did not immediately specify a cause, some Mexican news reports said he had checked in a night earlier with heart problems. But the prolific Fuentes, who said he had begun a new novel on the heels of another recently completed one, was not publicly known to be ailing.

“I deeply lament the death of our beloved and admired Carlos Fuentes, a writer and Mexican of the world,” read a message posted on President Felipe Calderon’s Twitter account.

Fuentes, who also served as a Mexican diplomat, gained wide acclaim for novels such as “Aura” and “The Death of Artemio Cruz,” part of a generation of world-class writers from Latin America. U.S. movie audiences may recall the film based on the Fuentes novel “The Old Gringo,” which starred Gregory Peck and Jane Fonda.

He won numerous literary prizes and was perennially mentioned as a possible candidate for the Nobel Prize in literature, but never won it.

At home, Fuentes remained until the end outspoken on issues of the day. His most recent column — about the presidential election in France — was published Tuesday in the daily Reforma newspaper. Disdainful of many Mexican politicians, he tacked a note at the end taking aim at the tone of Mexico’s own presidential race, which he said sacrificed discussion of big issues for candidates’ petty attempts to knock each other down.

Fuentes said he found elixir in work. “My system of youth is to work a lot, to always have a project pending,” he told the Spanish newspaper El Pais in an interview published Monday. He said he had just completed a novel called “Federico on his Balcony” and had begun a new one.

Three Mexico Presidential Candidates

May 6, 2012        6:01 pm

Mexico’s four candidates for president will square off tonight in a tightly controlled debate in which they will make their case to voters to lead Mexico for the next six years as the country struggles against soaring drug-related violence and economic doldrums.

The debate begins at 8 p.m. local time (Central time in the United States) at the World Trade Center in Mexico City and will be aired live on YouTube via the channel for the Federal Electoral Institute, or IFE.

It is the first of at least two official meets among the candidates who have become political footballs themselves. The second-largest television network in Mexico, TV Azteca, stirred controversy when it said last week it would not air the debate live and instead go with a major-league soccer match.

The 2012 campaign has been dominated by Enrique Peña Nieto of the former ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party, or PRI. Peña Nieto has maintained a comfortable double-digit lead in polls despite a series of early missteps and allegations by his opponents that his campaign has already surpassed spending caps on propaganda.

Two other candidates, Josefina Vazquez Mota of the center-right National Action Party, or PAN, and Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador of the center-left Party of the Democratic Revolution, or PRD, are under pressure tonight to significantly shift the momentum of the race in either of their favors.

Both campaigns view Peña Nieto as vulnerable in unscripted situations. The debate format, however, will offer little room for back-and-forth. Questions were agreed upon and previously distributed.

Vazquez Mota and Lopez Obrador are widely seen to be vying for second place, while Gabriel Quadri, of the Nueva Alianza party, is running a distant fourth.

PHOTO: Micah True, 60, an accomplished ultrarunner featured in the best-selling book "Born To Run," has been missing in New Mexico?s Gila National Forest since Tuesday.

March 31, 2012

They call him Caballo Blanco, the White Horse.

Ultrarunner Micah True, 60, is a legend in the distance running community. He was depicted in Christopher McDougall’s best-selling book, “Born to Run,” in which he took up residence in the remote Copper Canyons of Mexico among the Tarahumara, a desert-dwelling tribe of the best ultrarunners in the world who gave him the moniker.

But True mysteriously disappeared last Tuesday after leaving for what was supposed to be a 12-mile run in southwest New Mexico’s Gila National Forest. Search efforts that were launched on Wednesday have ramped up across the region, The Associated Press reported.

Some 14 search teams — complete with people on horseback, dogs, helicopters and a search plane — set out Friday to find True, and they were joined by hordes of extra volunteers today, New Mexico state police told the AP.

“We’re going to do everything possible to cover as much ground as possible, but it’s already been four days,” state police spokesman Lt. Robert McDonald told the AP. “By no means are we going to give up, but time is of the essence as always in a search and rescue effort.”

True, who lives in Denver, had spent the night at theWilderness Lodge in Gila Hot Springs, N.M., and went running Tuesday morning wearing shorts, a T-shirt and hat and carrying one water bottle, according to Jane Bruemmer, the lodge’s co-owner.

“He goes for a run every day, so it’s not unusual,” she told ABCNews.com. “We just don’t think he had much with him, since he was planning on coming home. We’re perplexed.”

Since True spends part of the year in Urique, Mexico, where he is the race director of the Copper Canyon Ultra Marathon, a 50-mile race across the desert, Bruemmer says he often stays at her lodge while en route to and from Mexico. He runs frequently among the cliff dwellings of the Gila National Forest.

Before True went missing, Bruemmer and her husband were heading to Silver City, N.M., a town about 40 miles away from the lodge, but True had planned to stay until Wednesday, when he was to depart for Phoenix to visit his girlfriend. So the couple bid him goodbye, leaving a friend to watch the lodge while they were away, Bruemmer said.

But the friend told the Bruemmers that True never returned from his run on Tuesday, and that “the guests were worried,” she said. So she and her husband, Dean, called the state police Wednesday morning, and they launched a search in the area, where the temperature can drop below freezing at night.

True had left his dog at the lodge, since he would be running north along Highway 15, which dead-ends at the cliff dwellings, Bruemmer said.

“We don’t know where he was from then on,” she said. “We’re assuming he went off-trail. But this is a huge wilderness.”

Bruemmer said she’s received lots of calls and emails from the ultrarunning community, offering their help with the search, and True’s girlfriend also arrived from Phoenix to join the effort.

True wasn’t known to have any health problems, and Bruemmer suspects he may have become injured. But the search parties “have gone over and over these trails, and on really obscure trails that are barely there anymore,” she said.

People have been known to get lost in the Gila National Forest, because it’s a wilderness area, “so you can get turned around,” she said. “But I wouldn’t have thought it would happen to Micah.”
