In one of his declarations, the leader of the PGR affirmed that the Zetas were a myth, that its members were already dead or in prison. Shortly thereafter, General Vega, head of the Defense Department, symbolically revived and released them when he indicated at a meeting with senators that "he didn't want to alarm them," but "it seemed to be" that a group of Kaibiles "wanted to be invited" to join the Zetas and would be operating along Mexico's southern border with Guatemala. Two months earlier, the US Department of Homeland Security had sent a memo to the Border Patrol in which it indicated that according to unconfirmed reports around 30 Kaibiles were training people from the Zetas "south of McAllen" (Texas), a twisted and bureaucratic way of saying Reynosa, Tamaulipas. Previously, the Mexican press had published reports about the supposed presence of Gurkha mercenaries from Nepal and other nationalities on the southern border, according to Guatemalan military sources. The only thing left was to report the presence of Darth Vader.
According to the mayor of Zihuatanejo (PRD), the violence in his city and in Costa Grande was due to Fox having "come to an agreement" with one of the organized criminal groups. But if this was true, how do you explain that despite all the supposed aid for one group of all the force of the state, or at least of the presidency, that another group could compete with the "protected one"? What power greater than or equal to the president's protected the other group? Mysterious.
