Disputing the Official Version
This is from a while back, but worth repeating: on April 9, Judith Torres reported that no one in Juárez believes the theory that Chapo has won the town. It does seem a bit far-fetched, but the one thing I can't make heads or tails of is why the US officials would be eager to get that story out there. One of the sources for Torres' blog post says that the Americans peddling the story have their interests, but how are American or DEA interests served by falsely promoting the idea that Chapo controls the city?
