Salvador García Soto has a column in El Universal detailing the government's push to arrest El Chapo Guzmán as soon as possible: "The government of Calderón knows that this is the moment to try to catch a capo of El Chapo's size." Like many of the successful arrests of big fish, the army, rather than a branch of the federal police, will be in charge.
A year and a half ago, Ricardo Ravelo, probably the most prolific journalist on the narco beat, wrote a book called Maldita Herencia in which he referred to El Chapo as the government's preferred kingpin. A lot of people were saying the same at that point. It just goes to show how little anyone knows about the drug wars here, even those who know a lot.
