Felipe Calderón acknowledges Mexican police corruption: "We need to get our house in order"
Calderon condemned again the now defunct DEA "Fast and Furious" arms sales program, which resulted in the transfer of over 2,000 military grade firearms directly to Mexican drug cartels or their purchasing agents in the United States. He told his L.A. audience that after Mexico captured the high ranking narco criminal Jesús Enrique Rejón Aguilar, Aguilar testified that U.S. DEA agents had even showed him how to remove a tracking device from an AK-47 they had sold him. While some heads rolled as a result of "Fast and Furious" (http://mexicogulfreporter-supplement.blogspot.com/2011/11/two-us-officials-quit-over-fast-and.html), others involved actually got promotions. As the saying goes, government work is great if you can get it.
