Whack-a-mole drug war: Wall Street's Role in Narco-Trafficking

Mike Whitney: Wall Street's Role in Narco-Trafficking: "America's Mexican policy--The Merida Initiative--is a nightmare. It's undermined Mexican sovereignty, corrupted the political system, and militarized the country. It's also resulted in the violent deaths of thousands of mostly poor civilians. But Washington doesn't give a hoot about 'collateral damage' as long as it can sell more weaponry, strengthen its free-trade regime, and sluice more drug profits into its big banks. Then everything is just Jim-dandy."
