Espinosa on Fast and Furious

Mexico foreign secretary testified today that her government was warned about the program, but only insofar as it would be applied in the US. According to Milenio, she indicated that they were not made aware that the arms would be allowed to go to Mexico, although they would have had to realize that such a result was at least possible.

She also addressed the drone program with the justification that "this has allowed us to use technology and intelligence to combat organized crime without endangering the lives of Mexican military and police personnel", in the newspaper's phrasing.
