CNS Misleads About Drug Gangs, Border Control

A Sept. 28 article by Edwin Mora carries the alarmist headline, "DOJ: ‘Mexican-Based Trafficking Organizations Control Access to the U.S.–Mexico Border.’" That's followed by Mora's equally alarming lead paragraph:

Mexican drug-trafficking organizations “control access to the U.S.-Mexico border” and the “smuggling routes across” it, “resulting in unprecedented levels of violence in Mexico” and allowing those drug trafficking organizations and their associates to “dominate the supply and wholesale distribution of most illicit drugs in the United States,” according to the Justice Department's newly published 2011 National Drug Threat Assessment.

Mora doesn't quite get around to explicitly stating it, but it's clear from the DOJ report he's quoting that the "control" the drug gangs have applies only to drug smuggling, not legitimate commerce.

Mora's presentation, therefore, is very dishonest. But then, it appears CNS has chosen not to be an honest news organization.
