Al Jazeera ~ US-trained cartel terrorises Mexico

It turns out that the Mexican drug cartel responsible for massacring 72 migrant workers in August was started by former Mexican army elite forces.

Their group was formed in 1994 to crush the Zapatista uprising, after which it received special ops training at Fort Bragg, NC.

From 2000 to 2005, more than 1,300 of the elite troops defected to use their peasant-killing terrorism skills for the Zeta drug cartel.
