Why is the DEA Laundering Drug Money for Mexican Cartels?

“The agents took shipments of hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash across borders and deposited them in traffickers’ accounts or shell accounts set up to launder the funds. Their activities allowed the cartels to launder funds for months or even years while investigations proceeded.”

Meanwhile the DOJ is punishing ATF agents who blew the whistle on US illicit gun trafficking to the same drug cartels.

It’s all a terrible misunderstanding of course. Nothing to do with the increasingly desperate need for liquidity to fend off the impending stock market crash.

Is it too much to ask that wall street and the US government finally free themselves of their decades-long narcotics addiction?  (see ref section)  I mean really, they’re imprisoning people for using their drugs.  This is kinda, you know … criminal.
