President Obama on Tuesday vowed to invest the resources. . .blah blah blah. . ."We are going to continue to monitor the situation". . .blah blah. . .praised the efforts of Mexican President Felipe Calderon to counter drug cartels. . .blah blah, blah blah blah, blah blah. . . illegal guns and cash do not flow from north of the Rio Grande to the cartels in Mexico.Wait, WHAT!!!
Relax, I took that out of context. That's what they should be saying, or at least doing cursory research into where machine guns, mortars, M72 LAWs, or hand grenades are coming from, but that's not going to happen.
The same big box news agencies that give excellent coverage of Iraq, celebrity sex scandals, and the day to day occurrences of our awesome government that is in no way corrupt will also continue to bring you the exact same information on illegal arms smuggling into Mexico as they did last year, all from the comfort of Washington. I mean, there's absolutely nothing that could be gained by sending investigative journalists to Mexico to find out where the cartels are getting the explosives to make IEDs or .50 caliber Browning Heavy Machine Guns. Why do that when they can count on the expert advise from such prominent places such as the Brady Campaign, which has a crack team of, like, a dozen people that have knowledge of such things because the person the group was named after was shot with a .22.
Those who have not been shot have no authority on this subject, so CNN does not need to consult with anyone else.
