Whack-a-mole Drug War: The Fog of Mexico's Drug War

A look at the central problem on the Mexican side of the drug war: lack of a functioning justice system.

Foreign Policy: "The total impunity that reigns in Mexico -- due to the failure of police and security forces to maintain any semblance of trustworthy authority, the dragging speed of reform in the police forces, and the absence of any investigative capacity or will whatsoever -- is responsible for this atrocity. And Calderón's inability to admit fault or honestly describe the sorry state of his signature initiative is exactly what is making it so difficult for him to convince Mexicans of anything, including the notion that his party should remain in office next year."
