Major red flags go up for me [Progress] with this ABC storyline on the Allen Stanford fraud. FBI claims he was laundering money for "The Gulf Cartel." Oh yeah? What Gulf Cartel?
Stanford was probably accepting cartel money for investment but the FBI is blaming "the Gulf Cartel." This appears to be a CIA/DEA red herring since the Gulf Cartel has been taken apart by Presidente Cardenas.
Look to either Sinaloa or Michoacán. Michoacán is the home power base of Mexican Presidente Cardenas who is Bush and Rove's boy. Michoacán is the new connection for Colombian cocaine that is coming through the Michoacán plaza on the west coast of Mexico and then moving either up the Pacific Coast to Sinaloa or across the narrow Mexican isthmus into the Gulf of Mexico, the Gulf Cartel's former territory, and then moving on to American ports or the Dominican Republic for flight to the west coast of Africa before moving on to Europe.
Michoacán as well as Sinaloa have taken over the old Gulf Cartel's territory, save for a pocket in Monterrey/Matamoros, Tamaolipas S.A..
This story smells of CIA/DEA disinformation. They might as well have broadcast it: Stanford is apparently a part of the CIA covert financial activity moving through the Dominican Republic, Miami, Tampa, Mobile, Memphis, Tuscaloosa, New Orleans and, yes, even Corpus Christi, Galveston and Port Arthur. They even use the oil rigs owned by the Bush family (Zapata Oil and Bechtel) as depots. Blaming the Gulf Cartel is a dead give away.
Did you guys ever hear of "Dark Alliance" and Iran-Contra? What do you think Karl Rove and Jack Abramoff wanted with Sun Cruise Lines working out of Florida, Mississippi and Alabama? Money Laundering, that's what. Did you know that the Sinaloa Cartel and former Juarez Cartel were funneling money into the Bush Campaign?
If Stanford was accepting drug cartel money to manage in his Madoff style ponzi scheme, dollars to donuts the CIA and DEA are involved and now they're running scared trying to cover it up by casting blame on "the Gulf Cartel," hah, hah. They must think we're idiots. This whole thing is going to come apart at the seams if Congress will ever muster the courage to set aside the old Nixonian "national security" excuse and accept their constitutional responsibility to investigate....LOL....
