Merida Initiaitve to aid northern Mexico's fierce fight against drug cartels

The folly of U.S. anti-drug policy continues. 

El Paso Times: "The Mérida Initiative, a $1.5 billion U.S. aid package to help Mexico improve its police forces and judicial system, will shift its focus to Mexico's northern states and help state and local police fight drug cartels, officials said Tuesday. 'This is where most of the cartels have focused their activities,' said William R. Brownfield, assistant secretary of the Department of State Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs, during the final day of the 2011 Border Security Conference at the University of Texas at El Paso."
