Mexican Drug Lord To Face Fate Of Bin Laden Says US


The U.S. will make every effort to ensure that a Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman will face the fate of Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, US Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano said on Monday.

“It took us 10 years to find Osama Bin Laden and we found him,” Napolitano said at a press conference in Mixico city. “And you know what happened there; I’m not suggesting the same thing would happen with Guzman but I am suggesting that we are persistent when it comes to wrongdoers and those who do harm in both of our countries,” she added.

Guzman was sent to prison in 1993 but has been on the run after escaping from jail in a laundry cart in 2001, reportedly avoiding his 21-year prison sentence in exile in France.

“El Chapo” made Forbes’ list of billionaires and was named one of the most powerful people in the world. He almost single-handedly controls the entire U.S. cocaine market. The US has offered a $5 mln reward for information leading to his arrest.

Al-Qaeda leader Bin Laden, who was behind the 9/11 attacks against the United States, was killed in a raid by U.S. Navy Seals on his compound in May 2011.

    People of different religious faiths found historical records in tombs , etc. and did better at not using time or money to justify what sin is than the current Congress that appears to be more dysfunctional at appearing as mentally stable themselves.
    That’s why the word illegal was first carved on stones…because rulers like the ones at the time Christ lived; are today the mirror image of the ones currently serving themselves rather than the public that elected them…and the future generations need live better.
    Conclusion: who in the world would believe someone in Mexico was hunted as long as Bin Laden? You would have to add the Clinton years to really see when the uS tried, but failed to kill Bin Laden…and that would be more than 10 years.
    I could only imaging what the descendants of presidents Tyler or Taylor would have historically provided the people of the world instead.
    The uS history books taught at college level have a different assortment of timely events…I can assure you… especially when it concerns the founding leaders of a country that signed covenants with God and today appear to have totally broken them…to bury the ones that Israel received.
    Everyone have a good day…the same law enforcement officials forgot to tell you you are one minute closer to total nuclear annihilation.
