In not too distant past, sending Navy SEALs to hunt down CIA's rival DrugTraffickers was 'illegal'; Not Today!Submitted by AnCapMercenary on Wed, 08/15/2012 - 16:10
Or so it would seem:
- Joaquin 'El Chapo' Guzman is one of Mexico's most wanted drug cartel kingpins
- He escaped from prison in daring breakout in 2001
- Mexican President Felipe Calderon reportedly reached out to U.S. for help in taking out Guzman in military raid
- U.S. agencies have allegedly grown frustrated with Mexico's inability to catch Guzman
- Bin Laden killed in Seal Team Six raid in Abbotabad, Pakistan, on May 2, 2011

In an effort to catch one of the world’s most notorious drug kingpins, the U.S. may use the same daring methods that took down Osama bin Laden.
More than a year after the terror leader’s demise in Abottabad, Pakistan, Seal Team Six raid, the highly-trained commandos may be dispatched to Mexico to kill or capture Joaquin 'El Chapo' Guzman.
Like the 9/11 Mastermind, Guzman has been the subject of a vast manhunt for the last ten years after he escaped from a Mexican high security prison in a complex breakout that reportedly cost him nearly $4million.
The notion that US Military would be directly used to hunt down political enemies of even our favored puppet regimes, in the 1990's was well understood to be an illegal action. That's why the US Military and Congress critters at least made the public pretense of sending them in, only as "military advisers" (just like how Vietnam 'police action' began) to those foreign regime's military/political witchhunt operations, as seen in Colombia, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Chile, Argentina, etc.
Such notion was no mystery, even movie goers knew about it, better yet, on the most part, understood that to be the case in the 1990's; remember this?

This is the third film based on Tom Clancy's high-tech espionage potboilers starring CIA deputy director Jack Ryan. Harrison Ford, returning to the Ryan role after his first go-round in 1992's Patriot Games, is assigned to a delicate anti-drug investigation after a close friend of the President (a Reaganesque Donald Moffat) is murdered by a Colombian drug cartel. When Ryan discovers that the President's wealthy friend was in league with the cartel, the President's devious national security adviser (Harris Yulin) and an ambitious CIA deputy director (Henry Czerny) send a secret paramilitary force into Colombia to wipe out the drug lords. The force is captured and then abandoned by the President's lackeys. It falls to Ryan to enter Colombia and rescue them, aided only by a renegade operative named Clark (Willem Dafoe), with both his life and career on the line.
Two decades and a few false flags is all it took, eh?
Remember Pablo Escobar? Even a mere notion that America's premier SPECOPS unit the 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment-Delta (1st SFOD-D) aka Delta Force, was used to hunt down Pablo WAS 'controversial,' precisely because EVERYONE KNEW it was an UnConstitutional/illegal unauthorized military action; POTUS using them like his private army, though let's face it: THEY ARE.

In 1989 Forbes magazine estimated Escobar to be the seventh-richest man in the world with a personal wealth of close to $25 billion, while his Medellín cartel controlled 80% of the global cocaine market. While seen as an enemy of the United States and Colombian governments, Escobar was a hero to many in Medellín (especially the poor people); he was a natural at public relations and he worked to create goodwill among the poor people of Colombia. A lifelong sports fan, he was credited with building football fields and multi-sports courts, as well as sponsoring little league football teams.
Escobar looked responsible for the construction of many churches in Medellín, which gained him popularity inside the local Roman Catholic Church. He worked hard to cultivate his “Robin Hood” image, and frequently distributed money to the poor through housing projects and other civic activities, which gained him notable popularity among the poor. The population of Medellín often helped Escobar by serving as lookouts, hiding information from the authorities, or doing whatever else they could do to protect him.
Despite his popular image among the Medellín community Escobar was well-known among his business associates to be an insecure, paranoid, ruthless murderer. His brother was reported saying that Pablo was so violently committed to loyalty that he once threatened him at gun point over a minor misunderstanding. His brother said his ability to befriend the dangerous and intimidate the powerful is what made him as unstoppable as he was. At the height of his power, drug traffickers from Medellín and other areas were handing over between 20 and 35% of their Colombian cocaine-related profits to Escobar.
Escobar’s continuing struggles to maintain supremacy resulted in Colombia’s quickly becoming the world’s murder capital with 7,081 victims in 1991 alone. This increased murder rate was fueled by Escobar’s giving money to poor youths as a reward for killing police officers, over 600 of whom died in this way.
