Recollections of Mexico

A few bloggers have asked me how it feels to arrive at and hang out at a major drug cartel compound in Mexico. How are you treated?

Keep in mind that in each case, the bad guys knew that I was from the US government and that I was only there to talk.

I've done this more than once and at different sites, and have had difficulty explaining it properly, I will turn to art to provide a more realistic comparison (sans jungle and river) than is easily conveyed with mere words.

And yes, one of my recruited assets was beheaded in Guadalajara about three years ago, the head left at the opening to the Anteres Mall.

Enjoy the realistic metaphor.

"Sometimes he goes too far -- but he's the first one to admit it."
