We're Going after Chapo
The post's title doubles as a comment from Felipe Calderón last night. It's striking how little we've heard language like that from him over the past four years. He almost always addresses the government's pursuit of Chapo on defensive terms: We aren't protecting him. That, of course, feeds the strain of thinking that such is precisely what Calderón's up to is up to. I generally prefer politicians who aren't prone to boasts to those who are blustery, but this seems like an issue where a little bit of aggressive promise-making wouldn't be out of place.
