Official response by Mexico to Human Rights Watch report on military abuses
"Mexico is not at war. Our strategy is simply to reestablish domestic order, and a state based upon the rule of law, so that Mexicans will be able to enjoy the security, liberty and justice necessary to live in peace and harmony with one another.
"Our struggle against crime is being carried out in strict compliance with the law. The rights and liberties of all Mexicans have been trampled upon by criminal violence. We are committed to doing everything within our power to bring to justice those who kidnap, torture and murder, and those who would destroy our very institutions."
