No Policy?

Via Boz, this story should more of a concern to anyone paying attention to Mexican security than the Supreme Court decision on the military fuero:

The undersecretary of national defense, General Demetrio Gaytán Ochoa, declared yesterday that Mexico lacks a formal national security policy that makes government planning difficult, and because of which he called for the urgent construction of one so as to achieve the objectives stability and development of the country.
Calderón has, of course, published strategies guiding his crime policies, but they have always been deficient, both in their construction and their presentation. The fact that such a high-ranking officer could make that statement five years into the administration is a pretty clear-cut illustration of said deficiency.
