Do Lucrative US Government Drug Enforcement Contracts Equal Cartel Profits?

In response:

U.S. Attorney Laura Duffy said. "I urge others who aspire to take their place (Arrellano-Felix brothers/Cartel leaders)  to take note."

I wonder how many millions of US tax dollars were spent on just this one lengthy investigation? 

The US War on Drugs has dragged on for over 40 years.  Unfortunately these cartel kingpin prosecutions do nothing to deter others from taking up the trade. 

At this point US government contracts for the drug enforcement/border industrial complex have become just about as lucrative as the cartel industry itself.
BTW, don't forget US and global banks who simultaneously profit by laundering cartel money and making legitimate loans to the drug enforcement industrial complex.

Meanwhile in 2013 Harvard University decorates ex-Mexican "100,000 Drug War Dead" President Felipe Calderon with their First Angelopoulos Global Leader award and lucrative fellowship?

Pogo we have met the enemy, and like it or not he is closer and more insidious than we care to admit.
