Guatemala can’t confirm fight, much less dead Chapo…

The Guatemalan minister of interior has retracted his statements from yesterday referring to a confrontation between police and narcos in El Peten and the possible death of Chapo Guzman…  He says now that he cannot even confirm that a confrontation occurred.
Meanwhile, The Atlantic Wire takes it all seriously. But of course Stratfor and Wikileaks revealed the presence of Chapo in El Peten long ago… This is just an example of the twitterizing of news (IMO)…  Even if there were a confrontation, and even if the actual person who is Chapo Guzman were killed, what difference would it make to the systematic problems of crime, violence and non-functioning justice system in Mexico? And/or in Guatemala…
