DEA Helped Colombian drug lord launder millions of dollars

“U.S drug enforcement agents secretly helped a Colombian cocaine supplier launder millions of dollars in drug proceeds so they could infiltrate cartels working through the Mexico border, it has been revealed.

“An extradition order by the Mexico Foreign Ministry against Harold Mauricio Poveda-Ortega – known as ‘The Rabbit’ – revealed U.S. narcotics agents, Mexican law enforcement and an informant worked together for months in 2007.

“They carried out wire transfers for tens of thousands of dollars, smuggled millions in bulk cash and even escorted a shipment of cocaine through Ecuador, Dallas and finally Madrid.”

 

The headline SHOULD read: “DEA Helped Funnel Millions in Drug Proceeds to Wall Street”
