Hernandez connects Mexico, U.S. authorities to drugwar crime
Anabel Hernández, a Mexican journalist and a writer who is receiving death threats from drug cartels and the Mexican government, will speak on her explosive information Thursday, November 3, at San Diego State University during a program that begins at 6 p.m. and is free of charge.
In 2010, Ms. Hernandez authored the book "Los señores del Narco" which outlines the connections between TOP Mexican politicians, military, police, industrialists and bankers and the drug cartels. In her perspective, the Mexican government is protecting the Sinaloa cartel, led by Chapo Guzman, and attacking Chapo’s enemies.
Huge bribes are given to military and police officials to garner their support and their protection of drug smuggling. Opposing cartels, particularly the Zetas, are enraged that the government is targeting them while protecting the Sinaloa cartel. This has prompted much of the bloodbath presently occurring in Mexico.
The permise of the evening is that all of this can only occur with the cooperation and support of elements within the CIA and the DEA, according to information received from Jesús Nieto, another presenter on the program.
The program will include a workshop on the musical genre of the narcocorrido and a presentation by Jesús Nieto on the history of CIA criminal activities including support of drug smuggling (marijuana, cocaine, heroin and crack).
Anabel Hernandez will take questions in an extended session after her presentation. She was recognized in 2003 by UNICEF for her investigation into child slavery on the U.S.-Mexico border.
At a recent signing, Hernandez penned on the book of a purchaser: “Corruption grows in the silence, in the silence.”
