Anabel Hernandez nuevamente a cruzado la linea de los negocios mas oscuros y sucios que hasta la fecha se dan entre el Gobierno de Mexico y los Carteles de la droga, brindandonos informacion de primera fuente de como altos funcionarios del Gobierno Mexicano han estado bajo el yugo y servicio de la C.I.A. para poder tener el control y transito de la droga hacia Estados Unidos (mayor consumidor de drogas en el mundo). Este libro ademas aclara el fenomeno de las guerras fallidas contra las drogas. Es un excelente libro que el lector debe de tomar en muy alta consideracion si en realidad desea conocer sobre el fenomeno del Narcotrafico en Mexico y Estados Unidos.

Estoy muy desepcionado de la versión para Kindle ya que la misma se encuentra editada y no es fiel en su contenido a la versión en libro impreso... hacen falta nombres de capítulos y partes de los mismos, como ejemplo, las siguientes línes son parte del capítulo 5 y 6 las cuales no encontrarás en la versión electrónica... y ésto es sólo una pequeña parte del contendio que hace falta... se me hace muy extraño que Anabel Hernández haya autorizado esta versión...

Otro punto en contra es que no cuenta con tabla de contenido... que frustrante... yo sencillamente lo regresé, prefiero quedarme con mi libro impreso...

Capítulo 5...

Los secretos de Calderoni

...Ellos [los funcionarios norteamericanos] confirmaron que Estados Unidos recibió del señor González información de los negocios del señor [Raúl] Salinas con traficantes en 1993. Cables secretos enviados a Washington por la embajada estadounidense en México muestran que los oficiales americanos habían obtenido las cuentas paralelas de [Raúl] Salinas de las supuestas negociaciones con traficantes, de diversas fuentes de información...

...Ya lo había hecho con el caso Irán-contra, y William Clinton era aparentemente un experto en la materia: él fue uno de los funcionarios investigados por el tráfico de drogas en el aeropuerto de Mena, en Arkansas, cuando fue gobernador de ese estado durante la década de 1980...

LA MUERTE DEL SOPLÓN

Es un libro bueno como referencia pero muy dificil de seguir por tantos datos, nombres, etc., que para el lector cotidiado que no conoce mucho de la relacion entre unos nombres y otros. Seria un poco mas ameno, interesante y educativo si hubiera diagramas con los nombres y datos relacionados en cronologia para que el lector vaya tejiendo la historia de los personajes en el contexto de su participacion en el crimen organizado en Latin America. Es un super libro lleno de importante reportajes pero creo que es mas facil para el autor poner algo de fluidez -de vez en cuando a travez del libro- por medio de fotos, links, diagramas etc.

Considero que ha sido muy valiente la escritora al narrar la verdadera historia de "la lucha contra el narcotrafico" tanto de Mexico como de los Estados Unidos y otros paises de America Latina. Es triste pensar que es casi imposible acabar con tanta corrupcion. Es un libro bien interesante. Lo recomiendo.

This is a really good book if you're looking into an overview of how the most powerful drug lords came to fruition. It also gives you a great insight into what happens under the table between criminals and the governments of the United States and Mexico in order to advance their secret agendas. The only gripe about this book is that the author makes it somewhat confusing by sometimes referring to the same character by just his last name, or first and one last name, or their nickname. I could see how this could be even more confusing if the reader is not familiar with the characters or with Spanish names. Overall, this is a great book.

600 pages on the catastrophe in Mexico. I decided to read it in Spanish to get the flavor. Horrifying story--I don't know whether the translation captures it. Basically, she argues that the war on drugs in the US and Mexico is a fraud, and that the real start of the cartels' power goes back to Iran-Contra and the Reagan administration's use of drug money (facilitated by our friends in the CIA) to fund the contras
opened the door first to Colombia. When the US decided that Colombia had become a failed state and the Colombians decided they wanted their country back, the bulk of the operations shifted to Mexico, whose proximity to the American market made it a fine distribution platform. What's really disturbing is not just the way that the huge profits to be made slowly corrupted the upper echelons of the Mexican political elite (the Brothers Salinas, one armed with his Harvard degree), but that eventually the balance of power turned, and that the collapse of the PRI produced a sort of narogobierno with the PAN willingly become the employees of the drug lords--rather than viceversa. There had always been upper level corruption, but I had the impression that people like Gamboa Patron or Camacho were running the show. By the time Mourino's plane was blown up over the Reforma (unbelievable), the narcos were running the politicians. Even more disturbing is Hernandez' claim that that Felipe Calderon's government was protecting The Pacific cartel in its war against the Golf cartel and the Zetas--which makes an unfortunate amount of sense when you look at the pattern of events. She correctly predicts that Chapo Guzman would have a staged retirement--so, now, I wonder, who's running the show and what EPN is doing in all of this.

It's tough going.
