One soldier was killed and three more wounded, including a top regional commander, after a cocaine-filled airplane touched down near a Caribbean resort in Mexico.
A cop commander is charged as a suspect in the killing of nine U.S. citizen women and children last month, a massacre that may lead to a cartel war.
Corruption charges brought by U.S. prosecutors against a Mexican cabinet member who designed anti-cartel policy expose a huge flaw in the "Drug War": The top guys are bad guys.

A monster strain of hybrid marijuana and cocaine’s white gold have made this Latin America’s heart of darkness. Ideological war may end, but narco war goes on.
There is little doubt the victims were targeted, but the question remains: Why? Was the issue drug trafficking—or could it have been water?
Locals love to be liberated from the savage rule of organized crime, but who’s footing the bill for these cartel wars?
