Hand of U.S. Is Seen in Halting General’s Rise in Mexico- NY Times

I think it is interesting that this NYTimes article mentions only General Garcia Ochoa and that the DEA suspicions of him stem from reports of events back in 1997. That was the same year that another top Mexican General and “drug czar,” Jesus Gutierrez Rebollo, was discovered to be working directly for the Carrillo-Fuentes (Juarez) Cartel. In fact, the NY Times has many stories on General Guitierrez Rebollo at this link.

Not all of the articles are available, but just a scan of the headlines and dates will give you an idea. For more links, see:

It seems quite a missing piece in today’s article that the name of General Gutierrez Rebollo is not mentioned at all… But the article is well worth the time. Just leaves me with more questions than answers.  Considering recent killings in Coahuila, we might wonder what General Garcia Ochoa was really up to there… molly
